Dire Climate Warning from Top UK Scientists

In an unusually shrill tone from usually staid scientists, the top climate researchers from the UK have warned “the world must halt greenhouse gas emissions and reverse them within two decades or watch the planet spiralling towards destruction.” They predict that even a 3°C rise in temperatures would kill 400 million, wipe out countless species and lead to disease pandemics. A 3°C rise is half of what is predicted currently by the end of the century.
To keep global average temperature increase at 2°C, global emissions must peak by 2025 and then come down by 2.6 percent a year. They stressed that climate change was undeniable, that avoiding “dangerous” climate change is vital but difficult, and that continued governmental policy inaction was unacceptable. Such shrill scientific predictions make my long standing warnings that global ecological collapse and attendant deaths of billions is imminent all the more credible. The sky IS falling.

    I share this view too, and I'm glad that more and more people, and especially scientists, are being “shrill” about this. Now it's important to make more and more people aware of it so that we can try to save our planet and our civilisation. My fear is that too many people are still in denial – surely if people really thought about things properly, they would see how we were abusing our planet. It seems to me it's just common sense.

    I too am with you on this.
    I wonder your position on alien species and their spread…lately I've begun to consider the spread of alien species to be a good thing in the long run. If native species will be dying off in large numbers in their current locales, then anything is better than nothing as far as plants and animal populations go.

    On Feb-09-06, Tony Blair, put out a statement ,that we have 7 year's too save the planet. And urge's U.S. to to get more active on Global Warming. He stated time is short. He received heavy ridicule for his statement, but pushed on.

    I agree , but we love out trucks and SUV, America has no advanced public transit sytem to move from city to city so we drive. Als when you get off a train in our antigue system , there is no way to get to your home or destination , except taxi. We need REALISTIC solutions and a drive to change. A lot of government money needs to be spent on advanced train system developement and not war technology, and war .
