For those genuinely interested in learning a few facts about climate change, a new report prepared for the World Bank by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and Climate Analytics, is a good place to start. It’s a lengthy report that examines implications of future warming on not just environmental systems but societal systems as well. It is an excellent synthesis of up to date peer reviewed science and has some well modelled most likely future scenarios as well. The most impressive thing about this report is that it is written so non scientific people can grasp the information. I have put a link to the report in my climate change section and a more direct link is here. Please take the time to download this report and read it….or if you score highly on the Worrall scale, write it off as “watermelon” nonsense without bothering to read it but be sure to comment on it.
