Infoshop News – Damage from Warming Becoming 'Irreversible,' Says New Report
Ten years after the ratification of a United Nations treaty on climate change, greenhouse gas emissions that lead to global warming are still on the rise, signaling a “collective failure” of the industrialized world, according to the Washington-based World Resources Institute (WRI), a leading environmental think-tank. “We are quickly moving to the point where the damage will be irreversible,” warned Dr. Jonathan Pershing, director of WRI's Climate, Energy and Pollution Program. “In fact, the latest scientific reports indicate that global warming is worsening. Unless we act now, the world will be locked into temperatures that would cause irreversible harm.”
