First of a series of posts about climate change by guest blogger Schalk Cloete:
Future outlook. A rather vague agreement has been reached at the COP17 climate conference in Durban. A legally binding global deal will be outlined by 2015 and enforced from 2020.
Good news: We at least have a deal.
Bad news: It’s hopelessly inadequate. Inadequate? Yep, these measures are projected to allow3-4 degrees of manmade global warming. As a result, our generation is likely to witness the start of a mass extinction, leaving our grandchildren an inheritance that can only be described as hell on earth.
Think this is bogus alarmism?
Well, stay tuned for further posts … http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hkzcDtbZhOA
