Global climate change is happening faster than previously believed and its impact is worse than expected, information from...a United Nations report. No region of the planet will be spared and some will be hit especially hard.

As I read this article, it has nothing that I wasn't aware of before now, especially since I have become involved with care2. I am not surprised that events are approching faster than expected. I have found that the climate has changed drastically during the last few years. Scientists also make statements and observations on a longer, broader lapse so that if it doesn't happen at their rate, they don't have to be caught off guard by being very wrong. If they have to end up being wrong, they would rather be wrong on the right side. It's almost like a political game for them. Anyone belonging and keeping up to date here on care2 should not be surprised at all.

yeah and everybody needs their car and uses atomic energy in their homes and the factory owners still don't do anything about the co2, do they!!! i am sick of irresponsible people, if your dog makes his business under a tree, and you are not at the same minute clean it away you get in trouble with car owners, who destroy our planet, because their car might get dirty. bmw is making advertising with peace- birds, but they are making real troubel if the goverments want to talk about co2, they argue with lost jobs for their workers!! what about the lost lives, because of the co2???

When he awakes late the early bird misses the worm but the worm was still there. The powers that be will not act wiilingly,those of us who wish to survive and save our planet and its contents will need to force these governments into action by our sheer numbers,as nothing else will work. The snowball affect will flatten us all if we wait on our governments.

No, they won't act willingly because it would cut into their precious profit margin, and we can't have that, now can we?

I'd like to see scientists have a larger role in public policy when it comes to these issues. This isn't a matter of "opinions," as people are so fond of saying when they can't support their own precarious position and don't want to be bothered with changing their ways when there's facts to support findings. This is about more than ourselves, and humans shouldn't be so egotistical as to think we have a right to cut down every tree, dig up everything, kill off animals willy-nilly, and pollute the air because simply because we can. Our actions have caused far more damage than too many are ready to admit, and it's these stubborn, selfish hold-outs who have escalated the problems scientists have warned about for years now.

And now, FINALLY the word is getting out globally. It's about time, too!
