Earth 'heading for 6C' of warming
By Richard Black
Environment correspondent, BBC News website
Fossil fuel emissions are rising with GDP, particularly in developing countries
Average temperatures across the world are on course to rise by up to 6C without urgent action to curb CO2 emissions, according a new analysis.
The article goes on to talk about carbon... but only this half-hearted attempt to be rational about the wild-eyed projection of temperature increase.
Richard Betts, head of climate impacts at the UK Met Office and an author on the chapter of the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report dealing with the effects of a changing atmosphere, suggested the report ought to be of interest to policymakers in the run-up to the Copenhagen summit."It's an important step towards understanding what we're doing to the world's carbon budget," he said.
However, he questioned the conclusion that society is necessarily on a trajectory leading towards 6C.
The more this stuff gets debunked, the more the BBC publishes it.
