New Warnings on Climate Change

"The language is far from final," said Kevin E. Trenberth, a senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo., who is a lead author of one section. "You can't say what the I.P.C.C. says until it actually says it."

"Jerry Mahlman, an emeritus researcher at the same center who was a reviewer of the report's single-spaced, 1,644-page summary of climate science, said that most of the leaks were from people eager to find elements that were the scariest or most reassuring."


Notes rom Rev. Dan:
  • Is it really wise for any of us to wish to rush the hand of God toward Armaggeddon? Does He not work in his own time, as He sees fit? Who are we to try to rush Him along?
  • Is it right and proper of us to chance damaging the gift God gave us, our home the Earth?
