CO2 MUST be cut by 80% by 2050 yet even green experts say its only higher
than the 14th C by 30% - WTF?

Those are percentages of two different things, in much
the same way that the debt and the deficit are different.
The 80% cut by 2050 refers to CO2 emissions. Globally,
we're currently emitting on the order of 30 billion
tonnes of CO2 annually.
The 30% increase refers to the amount of CO2 in the
atmosphere, currently 387 ppmv, or about 3 trillion
Cutting emissions by 80% by 2050 would mean that
atmospheric CO2 levels should peak at around 450 to 500
ppmv, or about 60-80% higher than pre-industrial levels.
