New study finds emissions cuts can still tame most serious of global warming effects

A new report released by National Center for Atmospheric Research today reports that the worst effect of global warming could still be reversed if aggressive measures are implemented quickly to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Candace Lombardi at Greentech reports that:

“The computer simulation showed that if greenhouse gas emissions can be held at 450ppm–the target labeled as reasonably achievable by the U.S. Climate Change Science Program, if the world reduces emissions by 70 percent–the global temperature would rise by about .6 degrees Celsius (about 1 degree Fahrenheit) by the year 2100. If human-made emissions are left unchecked, the model predicted that greenhouse gas levels would rise to 750ppm by 2100, causing a global temperature increase of 2.2 Celsius (about 4 degrees Fahrenheit).” (my emphasis)

It is almost double. Unbelievable. I honestly don’t understand what has to happened to make politicians open their eyes? It is obvious that this planet, without drastic changes, is on the way to become one big desert. Can stupidity and greed destroy lives of our next generations? Now more than ever, raising voice to save the planet, is the only way to go. And not just with the words but with individual action, as well. Turning off that extra light bulb might look minor but joint efforts can make difference.

climate debate is a very serious issues, but it seems that our politicians don’t understand the world they leaving for their descendant. if we continue like this our grand children will not have any place to live. may be we should all prepare to move in mars, but i wonder if we will not leave it for another planet again.

An alarming new study published Tuesday by the National Audubon Society says that almost half the bird species in the continental United States and Canada are already threatened by climate change.

The study — Audubon’s Birds and Climate Change Report — finds that 126 species will lose more than 50 per cent of their current ranges by mid-century with no possibility of relocating if global warming continues at its current pace.
