The article it references on the NYT front page is not exactly encouraging. It looks like the planet is all but guaranteed to pay the price for humanity’s refusal to take global warming seriously over the last four or five decades.

The best chance to minimize the damage would be swift and aggressive action to move from coal and oil to alternative energy, but that’s not going to happen until we have the climate-change equivalent of 9/11, and by then it will be far too late. (One could argue that the tsunami and Hurricane Katrina were just such wake-up call events, but you can’t really… dust for global warming.)

It’s probably just as well that Dubya won’t be the one leading the “Global War On Warming” – he’d probably try to invade the ocean.
