A leaked report from the IPCC has painted a grim picture of the future implications of climate change.

Quote

Their findings indicate that human activities are indeed behind the temperature rises observed over the last few decades and that sea levels are likely to rise by up to three feet by the end of the century if nothing is done to bring down harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

I'd be very surprised if an organization called 'The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change' came to any other conclusion! The longer they can come up with bad news, the longer their pay-cheques continue!

It's funny how the government can control weather so with that in mind it doesn't shock me about drowing cities in the future.As far as getting pay checks all the cover ups cost us money to keep secrets away from us ....damn somebody stuck us for our papers.

The IPCC has an extremely small permanent secretariat (one of the smallest of any international body), the scientists who contribute do so free of charge in addition to their academic responsibilities to their employers. Most of them would gladly give it up so that they could concentrate on their real work.

You are so far off the mark on this that its beyond funny. To much listening to the right wing loons I suspect.

Didn't the sites of paleolithic Indians disappear long ago - swamped by rising sea levels a couple thousand years ago?  Hasn't Venice been endanger of being swallowed by rising tides almost from its inception?

Venice is sinking, not the same thing at all.
The period directly after the last ice age saw massive rises in sea level which flooded all coastal settlements. This carried on for at least a few thousand years.

Eh? Your moniker says youre in the Netherlands, a countrty barely above sea level with much of its land reclaimed from the sea to start with, so it'll be one of the first to seriously suffer a raise in water levels,  Check your historic flooding data here

So the population will get pushed onto less land.  Another reason for population control.

The chairman is not a scientist, he is an economist.  That speaks volumes for their intentions, especially when one considers all their offered solutions involve some kind of wealth transfer from first world to third world, brokered by the UN, of course whose last success, if you are a crook, was the oil for food programl.   Billions of dollars spread around to all the bad guys and UN players in that debacle and of course no one was imprisoned.  Even more eyebrow raising is the worst actors such as China and India, are exempted!    After the trillions of dollars are treansferred and teh economies of many first world countries are devastated,  the global temperature will be about .4 degrees C lower after 100 years.  So much for the IPCC.  What a load of crap.

Believing when there is no compelling evidence is a mistake.  The idea is to withhold belief until there is compelling evidence and if the universe does not comply with our predispositions, okay, then we have the wrenching obligation to accommodate to the way the universe really is.  - Carl Sagan

"There is no difference between Communism and Socialism, except in the same ultimate end:  Communism proposes to enslave men by force, Socialism-by the vote.  It is merely the difference between murder and suicide."  - Ayn Rand
