Dangerous degrees, dangerous indifference

A new report – Dangerous Degrees – shows why experts are alarmed by the evidence for mounting costs in a warming world. Displacement, health, food prices and insurance premiums are all simmering issues.

Ice is not political or ideological, it just melts. While yesterday’s American Meteorological Society’s State of the Climate 2012 report has Antarctica’s sea ice increasing, the Arctic cap hit record lows and it appears 2012 was the 22nd straight year of loss of mass in glaciers worldwide.

That report highlighted records in ocean heat and a host of other indicators adding to a teetering stack of scientific evidence and warning signals that have come from just 0.8 degrees Celsius average global warming above pre-industrial levels.
