Worth a Watch

Screen Shot 2013-12-13 at 1.22.29 AMHat tip to Bob Henson at NCAR for spotting this video, produced with UN funding and based on the IPCC 5th Assessment report. It was made by the International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme. I listened very carefully, and the science is spot on.  Bob noted that it seems extremely unlikely that we can avoid a 2 degree C rise in temperature now, and unless some dramatic development in renewable energy comes along in the next decade, I believe he is absolutely right. We will be leaving our grandchildren a far different Earth.
