    Last warning: 10 years to save world
    Posted on Monday, January 29, 2007 @ 22:02:31 GMT by vlad

    General Jonathan Leake - Environment Editor/ The Sunday Times/ January 28, 2007

    Scientists say rising greenhouses gases will make climate change unstoppable in a decade

    THE world has just 10 years to reverse surging greenhouse gas emissions or risk runaway climate change that could make many parts of the planet uninhabitable.

    The stark warning comes from scientists who are working on the final draft of a new report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

    The stark warning comes from scientists who are working on the final draft of a new report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

    The report, due to be published this week, will draw together the work of thousands of scientists from around the world who have been studying changes in the world’s climate and predicting how they might accelerate.

    They conclude that unless mankind rapidly stabilises greenhouse gas emissions and starts reducing them, it will have little chance of keeping global warming within manageable limits.

    The results could include the destruction of the Amazon rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, the forced migration of hundreds of millions of people from equatorial regions, and the loss of vast tracts of land under rising seas as the ice caps melt.

    In Europe the summers could become unbearably hot, especially in southern countries such as Greece, Spain and Italy, while Britain and northern Europe would face summer droughts and wet, stormy winters.

    “The next 10 years are crucial,” said Richard Betts, leader of a research team at the Met Office’s Hadley Centre for climate prediction. “In that decade we have to achieve serious reductions in carbon emissions. After that time the task becomes very much harder.”

    WASHINGTON WAKES UP TO GLOBAL WARMING, January 28
    (AP) -- Maybe it's the weird winter weather, or the newly Democratic Congress. Maybe it's the news reports about starving polar bears, or the Oscar nomination for Al Gore's global warming cri de coeur, "An Inconvenient Truth." Whatever the reason, years of resistance to the reality of climate change are suddenly melting away like the soon-to-be-history snows of Kilimanjaro.

    NEW CLIMATE REPORT TOO ROSY, EXPERTS SAY, January 29
    (AP) -- Later this week in Paris, climate scientists will issue a dire forecast for the planet that warns of slowly rising sea levels and higher temperatures. But that may be the sugarcoated version.

    Climate change: UN scientists set to serve up bad news (Score: 1)

    Hundreds of the world's top climate scientists muster in Paris on Monday to frame a report expected to issue the bleakest assessment yet about global warming and its effects on the weather system.

    On Friday, they will issue the first update in six years of the scientific evidence for global warming.

    The 2001 report of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) was in many ways a shocker.

    It delivered a jolt to politicians about the perils of fossil-fuel pollution and reduced the powerful lobby of climate-change "deniers" to a shrill, if well-funded, rump.

    Sources familiar with the drafting of this year's report -- the first of three mammoth IPCC tomes to be issued this year -- say it will not offer any good news.

    "It will be a confirmation of what has been said for a long time, but point to additional risks," said French climatologist Herve Le Treut.

    Over the past few years, many published studies suggest that climate change, which many had expected to kick in several decades from now, is already underway.

    In alpine areas, glaciers are melting and snow cover is shrinking. The North Pole's summer icefield is a mere fraction of what it once was. Permafrost in high northerly latitudes is retreating. The oceans are becoming more acidic through absorption of carbon dioxide (CO2).

    In 2001, the IPCC said that carbon pollution from burning oil, gas and coal had helped drive atmospheric levels of CO2 to their highest in 420,000 years.

    CO2 is the principal "greenhouse gas," a term that applies to half a dozen substances that linger invisibly in the atmosphere, trapping the Sun's heat instead of letting solar radiation bounce back into space.

    Over the previous 50 years, temperatures climbed by around 0.1 C (0.2 F) per decade and most of the warming could be attributed to Man, the 2001 report said.

    It predicted that by 2100, the global atmospheric temperature will have risen between 1.4 and 5.8 C (2.52-10.4 F) and sea levels by 0.09 to 0.88 metres (3.5-35 inches), depending on how much greenhouse gas is emitted.
