IPCC: Global Warming Will Create a More Violent, Sicker, Poorer Future

IPCC: Global Warming Will Create a More Violent, Sicker, Poorer Future says the reputable Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in a new study, reports the Associated Press at the Washington Post.  While acknowledging sweeping impacts already occurring across the planet, the report also predicts increasing extinctions and loss of food productivity. All of the predicted harms already exist due to human over-exploitation of the planet, but climate change will worsen them significantly. The message is ever more urgent: we’ve got to act soon and dramatically to prevent catastrophic changes.

 

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is in 2 years!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
