Saving the Planet

In a report posted at the official website of CNN – posted last February , 02 , 2007 – the world ‘s leading climate scientists have expressed in the gravest of terms the problem with global climate change . Their report can be summarized in the following phrase : global warming is very likely man-made

The more technical wording could not hide the immediate action as seen below

The observed widespread warming of the atmosphere and ocean , together with ice-mass loss , support the conclusion that it is extremely unlikely that global climate change of [banner_entry_middle]

the past 50 years can be explained without external forcing [ .] warming and rise in sea-level would continue for centuries because the process has already started (see CNN .com

If global climate change is not enough of a problem there is also another environmental problem that is more immediate and can be felt locally and is much closer to home .

The scope is also staggering imagine changes occurring… [banner_entry_footer]
