Is It Too Late Already...?

This BBC story reports that The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will report that only greenhouse gas emissions can explain the worldwide freak weather patterns we are experiencing. Further, the report goes on to state that CO2 emissions will have doubled by the mid part of the century, resulting in a temperature increase of perhaps 4.5c or even higher.
We're fucked, kids. We need rapid change in our industrial habits and our personal lives right now. This, of course, would require leadership and backbone from our leaders like Bush, Blair and Harper.
Ha. Fat chance. They are too busy playing their little war games to notice that the real battle has already passed them by.

  1. I always enjoy reading climate change forecasts. The biggest news is that along with global warming we may still precipitate an ice age (or a return to the one that has currently warmed up briefly). What does this mean? Live lighter on the earth and learn to pray. Apparently most of the damage was done during the first 6,000 years of civilization, but we've made the last 50 years do a lot more.

  2. Fossil fuels are here today, but nuclear energy is here to stay.
