Climate Change Impact, Adaptations and Vulnerability

Here is the link to the latest Working Group II " Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability IPCC Report on Climate Change. I have given you the link to the “Summary for Policymakers." Everyone had better read it and even the full report would be best. Be sure you understand it and the implications. It is about to change your life.

There is every reason to believe the planet will survive but no reassurance that many of the species on the planet will survive the way we are going. One has to wonder if that possibility of species extinction also includes Man!

    Thankfully for Canada Dion called his dog Kyoto;)

  2. Thankfully he managed to bring the US government on side and to accept climate change as real. And to have Kyoto climate change policy parameters extended beyond 2012 by most countries on the planet at the Montreal Conference last year... that he chaired.

    Time to put the triteness aside and to get serious anonymous.

    Yep, Dion singlehandedly brought the US government on side when relations with the US were at an all-time low....rrrright.

    Not quite single handedly but damn near...some truths are hard to accept for certain people...like the earth is round and revolves around the sun.

  5. Anon 9am, the fact that one opposes Kyoto as ineffectual as the major polluters are not signed on does not equate to disbelieving the science behind it. As well, the science has only become abundantly clear (while some reputable scientists still argue) that global warming is from man-made sources.

    Please give support about how Dion convinced the USA about global warming - I think there may have been a certain Oscar winner who was a "little" more influential.

  6. Now Dion wants absolute emissions caps instead of intensity-based caps http://www.liberal.ca/news_e.aspx?id=12666

    Why wasn't this done before when he had a chance? This is the basic flaw in Dion's arguments about urgent action - if it is so urgent, why wasn't anything done while he was environment minister? Why were there not absolute caps?
