Some ‘top scientists’ are predicting “global warming is likely to worsen faster and cause more environmental damage than has been predicted.”
“Unless aggressive measures are taken, the greenhouse gases will accumulate faster than expected in the Earth’s atmosphere, increasing the danger of irreversible climate change by the end of the century, a leading climate scientist of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).”
Climate Change 2007 warned of severe global climate change, disastrous impacts, floods, forest fires and desertification.
The newest report says that CC2007 was too optimistic.
Mitigating global warming via multiple approaches are urged. “Reductions in desertification rates reduce the likelihood of drought in arid zones; reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions will be particularly effective in industrialized nations, the IPCC assessment said.”
Well, I’m really motivated now, aren’t you?
