Governments are running out of time to address climate change and to avoid the worst effects of rising temperatures, an influential UN panel warned yesterday.
.......... But there could be as little as eight years left to avoid a dangerous global average rise of 2C or more.Mr Adam explained that the warning came in a report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published the previous day.
David Miliband, UK environment secretary, said:
The IPCC has confirmed that finding, and that we have access to the technology we need to take that action. We simply can't afford any other option but to act. That's why we're pushing hard for negotiations to start on a new global climate deal this year, and are working through the G8 group of nations and the UN climate change conference."The report said global emissions must peak by 2015 for the world to have any chance of limiting the expected temperature rise to 2ºC.
Well, it's eight years later. Today is the alarmists tipping point day. And the innocent-until- proven-guilty CO2 continues its atmospheric rise.
Will today be the day the Alarmists admit that they got it wrong? Or will they crawl under stones after making some feeble excuses?
