UN: No One Will Be Spared

YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — If the world doesn't cut pollution of heat-trapping gases, the already noticeable harms of global warming could spiral "out of control," the head of a United Nations scientific panel warned Monday.

And he's not alone. The Obama White House says it is taking this new report as a call for action, with Secretary of State John Kerry saying "the costs of inaction are catastrophic."

Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that issued the 32-volume, 2,610-page report here early Monday, told The Associated Press: "it is a call for action." Without reductions in emissions, he said, impacts from warming "could get out of control."

Just my 2 cents,

but perhaps they are gearing up to blame the coming effects of Fukishima on GW so they can say, "I told you so".

Beware the cult of "government"...

Fukushima....

Dateline on this article is Japan...my first thought is, finally they are going to bring up concerns about Fukushima. Nope. Should have known...it just doesn't fit their agenda.

An alternate reality

They create a fantasy, they engage others to support that fantasy and MSM spreads the fantasy..we all live in the twilight zone, where nothing is as it seems.

Chicken Little Syndrome

UN: 'Seriously guys, this is so serious we had to add another color to our risk levels. Deep purple is the level we're at, and according to my mood ring instruction manual, we're in love with global warming.'

One quote I found interesting from the article: "Rich people benefit from using all these fossil fuels," University of Sussex economist Richard Tol said. "Poorer people lose out."

Huh? Last time I checked fossil fuels made everything from electricity to water bottles cheaper...how are the "poorer" people loosing out? Cause there aren't as many?

If ignorance is bliss, Washington DC must be heaven.
