Earth getting warmer proved!
The U.N's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded for the first time that that evidence of the earth's rising temperatures was "unequivocal" and that this this warming was more than 90% likely the result of human activity! This for all the sceptic scientist...
The IPCC reported that even if we managed to end all green house gas emissions today the earth would continue to warm for the rest of the century because of the amount of carbon we have already added to the atmosphere.
The question now becomes ho the world will respond and in particular how the present major carbon emitter, US, and the close future, by 2010, China, will react. China wants first world polluter to take primary responsibility for cutting emissions, but US refuses to give large developing countries like China the opportunity to pass.
The price of inaction will be enormous for all of us
