Regular commenter Goatguy looks at the future projection of warming and provides his own estimates to a chart provided by other climate researchers.
Soot and particulates are still the best target for saving lives from air pollution and mitigating and near or farther term climate issues
Mitigating soot would cost about $6 per ton of CO2 equivalent. CO2 mitigation costs about $100 per ton. Nextbigfuture has frequently written that soot is the most cost effective emission target for managing climate. It is also the one with the fastest results. Carbon dioxide mitigation does not impact temperatures for 50-80 years. Fully mitigating soot can also save 2-3 million lives by avoiding the disease from soot pollution.
