Global Warming Evidence
The 1PCC is a very conservative body, and their new report on the latest evidence on Global Warming makes it very clear that it is happening now. The excuses, the denial, the shame that people have backed the wrong ideas for decades and now don’t want the responsibility to change all has to be dumped and left at the door for those still resisting the science on this issue. The problem for most is having to admit all those smelly pinko tree huggers were right all along, that is something our less informed citizens will have to get over on their own time, the debate is moving on.
Melting of glaciers 'speeds up'
Mountain glaciers are shrinking three times faster than they were in the 1980s, scientists have announced.
The World Glacier Monitoring Service, which continuously studies a sample of 30 glaciers around the world, says the acceleration is down to climate change. Its announcement came as climate scientists convened in Paris to decide the final wording of a major report. There is reported to be some disagreement over what forecasts they will make for sea level rise. But whatever form of words they agree on, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will declare that human-induced climate change is happening and needs to be tackled. "[The report] embodies substantial new research, it addresses gaps that existed in our knowledge earlier, it has reduced existing uncertainties," IPCC chairman Rajendra Pachauri told reporters at a news briefing in Paris.
We will enter conditions which we have not seen in the past 10,000 years, and perhaps conditions which mankind has never experienced
