Warmer Earth May Create Crisis

Updated on October 31, 2006

Global Crisis Likely Within 50 Years Says Tony Blair

Tony Blair, UK Prime Minister: "If the science is right, the consequences for our planet are disastrous....This disaster is not set to happen in some science-fiction future many years ahead, but in our lifetime."

A British scientific report said that if current trends continue, average global temperatures will rise by 3.6 to 5.4 degrees within the next 50 years or thereabouts.

Everyone should be demanding to know what their government representatives are planning to do about global warming. What is their position on dirty coal-fired electric power plants, motor vehicle fuel economy, solar and wind power, etc.

      Thanks. More than a scientific problem, warming is a global political problem which requires education and cooperation to marshall the resources to deal with it before it's too late.
