Climate Change ‘Will Cause Civilisation to Collapse’
Posted by keelynet on August 26, 2009
As much as some deny that mankind does seem to be negatively impacting the climate, it seems to me better to try to make it better than wait until it all goes to hell, then, if we are still around, whine and wring our hands about it. In this case, chicken little is the safer, more rational bet.
Consider, if the earth turns on us with major climate changes, food, energy, everything will be affected.
“An effort on the scale of the Apollo mission that sent men to the Moon is needed if humanity is to have a fighting chance of surviving the ravages of climate change. The stakes are high, as, without sustainable growth, “billions of people will be condemned to poverty and much of civilisation will collapse”.
This is the stark warning from the biggest single report to look at the future of the planet – obtained by The Independent on Sunday ahead of its official publication next month. Backed by a diverse range of leading organisations such as Unesco, the World Bank, the US army and the Rockefeller Foundation, the 2009 State of the Future report runs to 6,700 pages and draws on contributions from 2,700 experts around the globe. Its findings are described by Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the UN, as providing “invaluable insights into the future for the United Nations, its member states, and civil society”. – Source
