UN Scientists See Grim Future If No Action Taken On Climate Change

UN Scientists See Grim Future If No Action Taken On Climate Change says a leaked draft report on climate change, reports Agence France Presse. The darkest report yet on the impacts of climate change, points to a future stalked by floods, drought, conflict and economic damage if carbon emissions go untamed. Details include displacement of hundreds of millions of people, reduced crop yields and the loss of trillions of dollars from the global economy. Australia will experience significant harm but coastal dwellers in Asia could face some of the worse effects of climate change. The full report is due out on March 31st.

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 this year!) 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.
