Countdown to global catastrophe
"[The report] breaks new ground by putting a figure - for the first time in such a high-level document - on the danger point of global warming, that is, the temperature rise beyond which the world would be irretrievably committed to disastrous changes. These could include widespread agricultural failure, water shortages and major droughts, increased disease, sea-level rise and the death of forests - with the added possibility of abrupt catastrophic events such as "runaway" global warming, the melting of the Greenland ice sheet, or the switching-off of the Gulf Stream.
Unfortunately, the article divulges that one of the champions of the report is none other then Senator Olympia Snowe (R-ME), a RINO (Republican In Name Only) of the first order, as well as the UN. With friends like this, who needs enemies? Ah well, perhaps she can still be 'saved': Sen. Snowe is now on my list to receive a copy of Bjorn Lomborg's The Skeptical Environmentalist: Measuring the Real State of the World, courtesy of courtesy of Amazon.com
A little common sense can do a girl a world of good!
