The Guest Opinion article by Joanna Clark in the July 29 edition of the San Clemente Times describes the predicted disastrous effects of global warming. 

There are those, like me, who agree that global warming is an established fact. However, what Clark, and virtually all global warming zealots, fail to tell us is how much the carbon control efforts they advocate will lower the global temperature.

What are the projected temperature reductions under various scenarios, such as:

1. Carbon reduction as a result of proposed various federal and state laws and regulations.

2. Carbon reduction results expected from China, India, Russia and other developed countries.

3. Carbon reduction results from Africa and other less-developed parts of the world.

There are definite economic impacts from all the actual and proposed carbon reduction laws and regulations and very little information on expected effects on temperature reductions.
