t r u t h o u t - Global Warming to Speed Up as Carbon Levels Show Sharp Rise

In the Independent yesterday Lovelock told us it is already too late. We face 10,000 years of overheated earth.

I guess that legitimises everyone grabbing everything they can now before our children or grand children have nothing left.

Three cheers for Blair and Bush

Global warming is set to accelerate alarmingly because of a sharp jump in the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

Preliminary figures, exclusively obtained by The Independent on Sunday, show that levels of the gas - the main cause of climate change - have risen abruptly in the past four years. Scientists fear that warming is entering a new phase, and may accelerate further.

But a summit of the most polluting countries, convened by the Bush administration, last week refused to set targets for reducing their carbon dioxide emissions. Set up in competition to the Kyoto Protocol, the summit, held in Sydney and attended by Australia, China, India, Japan and South Korea as well as the United States, instead pledged to develop cleaner technologies - which some experts believe will not arrive in time."
