    Rough estimates like Nordhaus’s are misleading in uncertain situations with extreme non-linearity. Enormous positive feedback from methane emissions caused by warming of boreal peat and permafrost is ignored in most climate models because of reluctance to be accused of scare-mongering when the science is uncertain. This applies even more to the possibility of major methane emissions from ocean warming of methane clathrates at the edges of cool-temperate continental shelves.

      Thanks Rick. Yes, I was surprised by the Nordhaus graph.
