UN Report Delivers Ominous Warning About Climate Change

The UN Report on climate change released last month – just in time for the Bali Conference – provides more details about the threat of a warming climate. The report synthesizes 3 reports released earlier in the year, cross referencing various data that would not otherwise be linked. In short, this is the seminal, holistic document on climate change. And the prognosis is poor.

Originally data showed that the earth could warm by 1 to 4 degrees by the end of the century. Data crunching from recent numbers estimates that global temperature could rise by as much as 6 degrees by 2030, resulting in catastrophic sea level rise.

Is it earth shattering that Bush is on board with climate change? Only in the fact that he’s finally admitting that greenhouse emissions might be a problem. He continued his bad-mouthing of Kyoto as an economy killer and wants to hold China and India responsible before the U.S. will agree to any curbing of CO2. True leadership would see Kyoto as an economy creator; the next generation of manufacturing will be making renewable energy products like solar panels.
