PARIS (AP) - The world's leading climate scientists said global warming has begun, is "very likely" caused by man, and will be unstoppable for centuries, according to a report obtained Friday by The Associated Press. The scientists - using their strongest language yet on the issue - said now that the world has begun to warm, hotter temperatures and rises in sea level "would continue for centuries," no matter how much humans control their pollution. The report also linked the warming to the recent increase in stronger hurricanes.Kyoto is dead. Fer sure. See, there's a consensus among scientists that it doesn't matter anyway. So take back those words in your SOTU, Bush. They should never have been put in the speech.
I'm expecting the op-ed in the New York Times any day now: "What I didn't find in Antarctica".
Of course this only means the politicians masquerading as scientists can shift their focus from destroying the economies of the most successful nations by essentially taxing emissions, to suing them for the cost of proposed infrastructure changes necessary due to the warming. Of course, what the changes entail and how much they should demand will take years and years of funded research to determine.
And we can all blame Bush. Of course.
