Much Anticipated IPCC Climate Report Provides “Stronger Evidence”

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) [search] chief scientist Rajendra K. Pachauri, their much anticipated Fourth Assessment report “will offer much stronger evidence of how man is changing Earth's climate [more], and should prompt balky governments into action against global warming.” The IPCC is a global network of some 2,000 climate and other scientists that regularly assesses the state of research into how carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases produced by industry and other human activities are affecting the climate. The Fourth Assessment is expected to be released in installments beginning next February, and “there's much stronger evidence now of human actions on the change in climate that's taken place” since the Third Assessment in 2001. The report “will offer significantly more evidence on sea-level rise [search], the melting of glaciers [search] and the growing scarcity of water [search].” The 2001 assessment projected temperatures would rise this century between 1.4 and 5.8 degrees Celsius (2.5 and 10.4 degrees Fahrenheit), depending on factors such as how quickly governments rein in emissions. The upcoming report is expected to narrow this range as “some of the uncertainties are being reduced.”

    Comments from HK : For the past three years I am actively involved in climate change and global warming matters and I discovered that Governmant involved and strong supported are very important, e.g. Sweden and
    Swiss are widely used bio-gas on automobile and no other countries are doing the same thing, why ? e.g. In China most of the Government Officials are using this for making money rather than control the emission of carbon dioxide and Government do nothing so far, same as in Hong Kong , never ever actually doing anything on
    carbon dioxide emission physically.
