A new global warming report issued Friday by the United Nations paints a near-apocalyptic vision of Earth's future: hundreds of millions of people short of water from the Ganges delta in India to the deserts acrosss China, extreme food shortages in Africa, a landscape ravaged by floods and millions of species sentenced to extinction.
This is a dire prediction and the consequences are scary and atlast everyone agrees that this climate change is a reality although there are still some who quibble on the causes of it. Whether the causes are human induced or not, it is a life-threatening crisis that must be faced and action must be taken now to reduce green house gases to reverse this deadly trend.
Protecting industrial development and an unsustainable lifestyle at the cost losing lives is foolhardy.
We, the humans, the most intelligent species living on this planet have also become its biggest threat.
