its angry, jealous neighbors.
Although this outcome is presented as a worst-case
scenario the report suggests climate change should be elevated beyond a debate
over reality to a American
national security concern.
Americans need to take seriously the
implications of global warming and act decisively to stop what could turn into
all out climatic mayhem.
The basic changes
needed to effectively limit global warming would
necessarily entail a tremendous amount of hands on
labor, providing meaningful, community based employment in
areas such as the reconstruction and retrofitting of buildings for energy
efficiency and solar power, the reforestation
and redesign of cities, the accelerated
development of high mileage
cars, the nurturing of sustainable local agriculture, the construction of
interlinked public transportation systems and high speed rail networks and
intensive development of renewable energy

"Recent years have shown that shifts in rainfall
can bring down governments and even set off wars. The African Sahel, just south
of the Sahara, provides a dramatic and poignant demonstration. The deadly
carnage in Darfur, Sudan, for example, which

ecological crisis directly arising from climate shocks." - Jeffrey Sachs

2003 One of the deadliest weather
phenomena in the past century occurred in the summer there were more than
19,000 deaths attributed to the heat. It was the hottest summer in Europe in
500 years, according to an analysis of temperatures dating back to 1500. Record
temperatures were recorded in most of the major cities of Europe with many
readings of more than 100°.
"When you consider Europe as a whole,
it was by far the hottest summer," said Jurg Luterbacher, climatologist
University of Bern, Switzerland
Jurg said increased temperatures
were not limited to summer in Europe; winters also have been warmer than the
historical record. In the study, Luterbacher and his team analyzed the
temperature history of Europe starting in 1500 to the present. For the earliest
part of the half millennium, the temperatures are estimates based on proxy
measures, such as tree rings and soil cores. After about 1750, he said,

"Scientists have systematically
underestimated just how delicate the balance of the planet's physical systems
really is. That rise of 1° has seriously perturbed hydrological cycles:
Because warm air holds more water vapor than cold air does, both droughts and
floods are increasing dramatically. Coral reefs are dying, and so are
of forest. None of that is going to stop, even if we do everything right
from here on out. Given the time lag between when we emit carbon and when the
air heats up, we're already guaranteed at least another 1° of warming. The
only question now is whether we're going to hold off catastrophe. It won't be
easy, because the scientific consensus calls for roughly 5° more warming
this century unless we do just about everything right. And if our behavior up
until now is any indication, we won't." - Bill McKibben

navigable. National Snow and Ice Data Center reported that
satellite measurements showed a
reduction of the sea ice to less than 2.02 million miles - down 386,100 square
miles from the previous low in September 2005. At current rates Mark Serreze,
a senior research scientist, predicts
the sea ice could be gone as soon as 2030.
2008 Northwest and Northeast passages are
open. Computer models predicted this would happen sometime late in the 21st
century. Melting Arctic ice is unsettling not only because it prove the planet
is warming rapidly, but also because it will help speed up the warming. White
ice reflects 80% of incoming solar radiation back to space; blue water absorbs
80% of that sunshine.
International shipping corporations ordered 152
reinforced hull ships to ply the newly opened Northwest Passage at a cost of
$100 million per ship - a $15 billion investment.
