Five Years to the End

Environmentalist group paints doomsday scenario:

The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) warns governments have until 2012 to "plant the seeds of change" and make positive moves to limit carbon emissions.

If they fail to do so, the WWF's Vision For 2050 warns "generations to come will have to live with the compromises and hardships caused by their inability to act".

"We have a small window of time in which we can plant the seeds of change, and that is the next five years," James Leape, from the WWF, said.

Meterologist says "not so much" and adds details:

"We're all going to survive this. It's all going to be a joke in five years," he said.

The good news is that we won't have to talk about in five short years. It will either be too late or a punchline. Either way, a reason to long for May 20, 2012.

In other warming news: Back in February, we asked where the energy from Gore Aid would come from. Add Roger Daltrey to the list who think a global rock concert is not only not the solution, but will add to the problem:

"Bo***cks to that! The last thing the planet needs is a rock concert. I can't believe it. Let's burn even more fuel."

Then again, there might be someone, somewhere, unaware of the global climate warming change issue. Won't it all be worth it if guilt and fear can make that person buy flourescent lightbulbs?
