The bad news: Point of no return is inevitable

Global warming is reaching the point of no return, with widespread drought, crop failure and water shortages the likely result, according to a new international report highlighted in the British press.

The countdown to climate-change catastrophe is spelt out by a task force of senior politicians, business leaders and academics. In 10 years or less, they predict, the catastrophic point-of-no-return may be reached...

Interestingly, the committee that created the report recommend changes that won't kick in before the point of no return is reached. Seems kind of strange to make pointless recommendations, no? Maybe those are the only kind left to make.

For more details, including how they came up with the 10 year, point of no return calculation (based on C02 ppm data), check out the original story here:

Please tell me you don't believe this nonsense. The very thought that human beings have the power to change the climate. Unbelievable!
