Global warming science alarming, say climate experts

Three UK groups studying climate change have issued an unprecedented statement about the dangers of failing to cut emissions of greenhouse gases.
The Royal Society, Met Office, and Natural Environment Research Council say the science underpinning climate change is more alarming than ever.
They say the 2007 UK floods, 2003 heatwave in Europe and recent droughts were consistent with emerging patterns.
Their comments came ahead of crunch UN climate talks in Copenhagen next month.

'Loss of wildlife'
In a statement calling for action to cut carbon emissions, institutions said evidence for "dangerous, long-term and potentially irreversible climate change" was growing.
Global carbon dioxide levels have continued to rise, Arctic summer ice cover declined sharply in 2007 and 2008, and the last decade has been the warmest on average for 150 years.
Persistent drought in Australia and rising sea levels in the Maldives were further indicators of possible future patterns, they said.
They argue that without action there would be much larger changes in the coming decades, with the UK seeing higher food prices, ill health, more flooding and rising sea levels.

Known or probable damage across the world includes ocean acidification, loss of rainforests, degradation of ecosystems and desertification, they said.
In 2007, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warned the world faced more droughts, floods, loss of wildlife, rising seas and refugees.
But Prof Julia Slingo, chief scientist of the Met Office, Prof Alan Thorpe, chief executive of Nerc, and Lord Rees, president of the Royal Society, said cutting emissions could substantially limit the severity of climate change.

Meanwhile, a White House official has said the US will announce a target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions before next month's Copenhagen summit.
President Barack Obama has not yet decided whether to attend.

This thing is very fearful. What about our own low lying areas like Warri and Lagos?

Globalist minion Al Gore and the United Nations climate change shysters led by Phil Jones are in trouble. Last week hackers uncovered a pile of email and documents revealing what many of us already knew — the climate change agenda is based not only on easily debunked junk science, but outright lies and deception.

Global warming is a fraud!

Tell me who is perpetrating the fraud or laugh at yourself and your right wing conspiracy theories. Who has most to lose economically from Global Warming? Think about it.

More global warming lies, where's the news?

I heard some naijas in Newark, NJ tried to cash in on some tax returns and ended up getting 10 years prison.

Global warming is a cover u for a bigger natural disaster that's about to be global hopefully Africa is least affected because we are the least prepared. if we receive the same impact other continents are receiving, then say bye bye to West/south Africa. I saw on the news a while ago that a part of East Africa will separate from the continent due to a massive earthquake soon. Let's just hope we survive this. We've survived this global storm before milleniums ago, let's hope we survive it again. Don't ask me for links; go to CNN site yourself.

We've heard of the tsunamis, the hurricanes, the floods, the constant earthquake in China, etc, they are all a preview to a bigger event and this isn't global warming related and it's natural and nothing we can do about it. except be prepared. Use paranoia to your advantage, don't let it weaken you.
