scientists predict dire consequences to global warming


news.aol.com

At the same time, tens of millions of others will be flooded out of their homes each year as the Earth reels from rising temperatures and sea levels, according to portions of a draft of an international scientific report obtained by The Associated Press.

Tropical diseases like malaria will spread. By 2050, polar bears will mostly be found in zoos, their habitats gone. Pests like fire ants will thrive.

For a time, food will be plentiful because of the longer growing season in northern regions. But by 2080, hundreds of millions of people could face starvation, according to the report, which is still being revised.

The draft document by the authoritative Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change focuses on global warming's effects and is the second in a series of four being issued this year. Written and reviewed by more than 1,000 scientists from dozens of countries, it still must be edited by government officials.

But some scientists said the overall message is not likely to change when it's issued in early April in Brussels, the same city where European Union leaders agreed this past week to drastically cut greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. Their plan will be presented to President Bush and other world leaders at a summit in June.

The report offers some hope if nations slow and then reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, but it notes that what's happening now isn't encouraging.

Watch this and breathe easier:

The Great Global Warming Swindle UK Ch4

The arguments are quite compelling: CO2 is an extremely minor part of the atmosphere; water vapor is a much more plentiful and important greenhouse gas; and as climatologists have proven, fundamentally it's increased solar activity causing the current warming cycle. All this is ignored because GW is the new religion.

GW was invented under Thatcher to break the coal unions and promote nuclear power, then took on a life of its own. Now it's conveniently used by the West to keep the Third World from developing--much the same treachery is going on with the Indian pharmaceutical industry btw.
