World Bank fears 4-degree warmer planet


www.abc.net.au

The World Bank has warned global temperatures could rise by four degrees Celsius this century without immediate action, with potentially devastating consequences for coastal cities and the poor.

The study said the planet could warm four degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels as early as the 2060s if government promises to fight climate change are not met.

The study found that the most alarming impact may be on food production, with the world already expected to struggle to meet demand.

Honestly are there any climate change skeptics left?

The problem is it won't happen overnight. People will only see climate change as a threat when they have physical tangible proof that it's happening, and by then it will be too late.

This isn't a term paper or an essay; we can't wait until the last minute to start doing something.

Technically we are still in an ice age, so unless we have some kind of catastrophic event, the only way the temperature will go is up.And it will continue to rise even without our influence, Everything we're spewing into the atmosphere is accelerating the process.

In less than a hundred years large parts of the planet will be uninhabitable. No one wants that.

Something needs to be done, and quickly. any ideas?

Yep,

That is who we need to listen to about climate change....

The frigging world bank of course.....

It is not about the planet man.......It is about the world bank stillbeing able to make profits in the year 2060.

By the way,

Do you need a loan to help you cut the greenhouse gasses? I am sure the world bank can work something out with you...

Climate change has and always will be about money.

The rich don't give a damn about the poor, and they sure the hell wont in 2060.

This article reeks of carbon emissions propaganda....

Perhaps the banks should stick with gouging money from Mums and Dads at every opportunity and leave science to scientists.

The mere fact that the World Bank pays money for these reports indicates to me that clearly global warming is just another way to sap money from struggling families.

Every 'scientific paper' that confirms global warming that I have seen leaves out of consideration that great big furnace in the sky. The primary heating source for the planet is the sun. You can't just leave it out of the calculations.

We are heading for another ice age. Governments will not divulge when that is likely to occur. We will never be told.

Banks are only in it for the money. Their involvement only strengthens the skeptics case.
They are evil incarnate.

The earth is warming but its not from us. I agree, why would the world bank pay for this?

Well be in an ice age before the end of the century anyway.
