UN Climate Change Report - the Latest Climate Change Report for People to Ignore
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has given us the latest data on the greatest hoax in human history, and I suspect it won’t matter very much to a country that still allows Jim Inhofe to be one-one-hundredth of the upper chamber of its national legislature. Yes, climate change is getting worse. Yes, it is causing not only environmental damage, but also political turmoil.
The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or in some cases going extinct. The oceans are rising at a pace that threatens coastal communities and are becoming more acidic as they absorb some of the carbon dioxide given off by cars and power plants, which is killing some creatures or stunting their growth, the report found.
Which, of course, is going to make people cranky. And hungry.
