You can relay on cute icons or smart-ass graphs, but the reality is going to suck.
The report opens with this: "It is my hope that this report shocks us into action. Even for those of us already committed to fighting
climate change, I hope it causes us to work with much more urgency."
Unfortunately, I think we are well past the "tipping point" of runaway global warming. Even if we stopped all greenhouse gas emissions today, the earth would continue to warm for some time due to the gasses already in the atmosphere.
But we're not stopping emissions. And didn't China and India give us the finger at the last climate change summit and refuse to agree to any emissions limits? We are screwed.
