Blue Sky Thinking for a Green Future

Just a simple little post today…

Simply Shocking!

It appears that no matter what the world governments’ policies are (or, will be) we face some dire adaptations if we want the human race to remain on earth.

There were three different scenarios created and run through a complex climate model by the United Kingdom’s Meteorological Office, Hadley Centre.

It didn’t matter which model was run. Bottom-line, we’re in for a rough ride:

Climate researcher and author Mark Lynas, who was a participant in the production of the recent report, Carbon Scenarios: Blue Sky Thinking for a Green Future, said:

“This means that all scenarios see the total disappearance of Arctic sea ice; spreading deserts and water stress in the sub-tropics; extreme weather and floods; and melting glaciers in the Andes and Himalayas. Hence the need to focus far more on adaptation: these are impacts that humanity is going to have to deal with, whatever now happens at the policy level.”

If the governments get their collective act together and the corporations allow them to institute binding laws; and, if the corporations abide by those laws { If humanity ever needed Faith, this is THE time… }, there seems to be a dim bit of light . . .

From the press release on Monday 9 June, 2008:

“When the panel of experts set out to develop a set of scenarios about climate change, the general public thought there was a trade-off between economic growth and carbon reduction. In fact, the scenario that delivers the most carbon reduction, also, delivers long-term economic growth by replacing a pick ‘n’ mix of complicated, confusing and opaque policies with a clear, long-term carbon price”, concludes report author Paul Domjan.”
