    CLIMATE CHANGE – IT GETS WORSE

    Severe, Pervasive, Irreversible: IPCC's Devastating Climate Change Conclusions

    Jon Queally, August 27, 2014 (Common Dreams via Center for Media and Democracy)

    “Climate change is here. Climate change is now. Climate change will be significantly more dangerous, deadly, and expensive if nothing is done to correct humanity's course, but aspects of future shifts are probably already irreversible…according to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) draft Synthesis Report…[which] offers a stark assessment of the perilous future the planet and humanity face due to global warming and climate change…Based on a clear and overwhelming consensus among the world's leading scientists, the draft says that failure to adequately acknowledge and act on previous warnings has put the planet on a path where ‘severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts’ of human-caused climate change will surely be felt in the decades to come…

    “[T]he draft includes not new information per se, but employs stronger language and contains a more urgent warning than the previous reports…According to the Associated Press, which reviewed the 127-page document, the IPCC draft paints a harsh warning of what’s causing global warming and what it will do to humans and the environment. It also describes what can be done about it…Using blunter, more forceful language than the reports that underpin it, the new draft highlights the urgency of the risks that are likely to be intensified by continued emissions of heat-trapping gases, primarily carbon dioxide released by the burning of fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas…The report found that companies and governments had identified reserves of these fuels at least four times larger than could safely be burned if global warming is to be kept to a tolerable level…” click here for more
