LONDON — The world has missed the chance to keep greenhouse gas emissions below the level needed to prevent the temperature climbing above 2° Celsius, according to the British scientist who used to chair the IPCC, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The scientist, Sir Robert Watson, chaired the Panel from 1997 until 2002, when he was ousted after U.S. pressure for his removal.

Watson said there is a 50-50 chance of preventing global average temperatures rising more than 3°C above their level at the start of the industrial age, but a 5°C rise is possible. That would mean the Earth warming more than it has since the end of the last Ice Age.

Watson may be the alarmist you've all been looking for.

But what if he is right?

HUH??? Warming more than it has since the end of the last ice age??

Actually, 3º C would make it the warmest since the Pliocene 3 Mya. 5º C would mean the warmest it's been for at least 15 Mya.

Of course it does seem that with a 5º C rise, it would be difficult to avoid significant methane release from the Arctic, which would cause a positive feedback, causing ever-higher temps & releasing all the methane ("firing the clathrate gun").

We'd then be heading for 7-11º C warmer, maybe even higher, like the PETM ~55 Mya. There'd be no ice on the earth.

What's up with you posters pushing this agenda all over topix?

Don't you Retards follow scientific results?

Scientists have determined........
Belief in this man made hoax fluctuates with TEMPERATURE!

so you should be peddling carbon tax during the SUMMER when its HOT outside.

Youre able to convince more Retards to pay taxes for breathing.

Admit the issue isn't "global warning"

The issue is global carbon tax.

The issue is the creation of a centralized global government to "oversee" this.

Ya paying fees to a foreign non representative government for breathing sounds like it will go well with world citizens.

Keep peddling your one world government.

The more you push for this...

The more resistance masses will build up to any other world government plans.

Keep up the good work.

Your propaganda is becoming self-defeating.

Times running out for you globalists.

Your puppet state America is losing steam as the world monetary system of debt is crumbling.

Globalists have 40 years Max to squeeze any more use out of US.

Once dollar reserve system crashes....

Better hope China and Russia are more welcoming to you globalists.

Freaking amateur morons.

People will buy into global warming when its 100 degrees outside.

Not in middle of winter.

Peddle your propaganda during the summer.

Will sell better.

What are you blathering about? America is the one that everyone else wants to emulate. The propaganda seems to flow from folks who do not have a clue about how science works and trend towards conspiracy theories. BTW, this is all one world in case you need reminded. There are things that need to be handled globally. Try to get that under your hat.
