I believe you’re mostly mistaken about how you see economic growth fitting into this picture.
You mentioned that CO2 concentration and temperature are going up at the same time. The other thing that went up right along with CO2 concentration and temperature was economic growth.
The behavior that drives all three of the above trends is the continually increased consumption of fossil fuels.
To reduce CO2 emissions we must burn less fossil fuels, period. This will most certainly lead to a reduction in GWP as it is measured today.
The economic growth you claim must be preserved is only possible if we continue to burn increasing amounts of fossil fuels which will in turn belch more CO2 into the atmosphere.
We can’t have our cake and eat it too.]]>
