    Global warming is a bigger threat than previously thought

    This report from the Times:

    In one of its most worrying conclusions, Professor Chris Rapley of the British Antarctic Survey gives warning that the West Antarctic ice sheet, which had previously been considered a "slumbering giant" in terms of climate change, is now starting to disintegrate at an alarming rate. If it melts completely, scientists believe sea levels around the world could rise by up to 5m (16ft), swamping vast tracts of coastal land. The report also warns that changes in the acidity of the sea will reduce its capacity to absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, with severe consequences on the entire marine food chain.
    Those who reject climate change science are those who will be ultimately responsible for catastrophes in the future. Climate change is a much bigger threat to makind than terrorism, time for the rabid right to grasp that fact. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
