    Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that issued the 32-volume, 2,610-page report here early Monday, told The Associated Press: "It is a call for action." Without reductions in emissions, he said, impacts from warming "could get out of control."

    One of the study's authors, Maarten van Aalst, a top official at the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, said, "If we don't reduce greenhouse gases soon, risks will get out of hand. And the risks have already risen."

    Twenty-first century disasters such as killer heat waves in Europe, wildfires in the United States, droughts in Australia and deadly flooding in Mozambique, Thailand and Pakistan highlight how vulnerable humanity is to extreme weather, according to the report from the Nobel Prize-winning group of scientists. The dangers are going to worsen as the climate changes even more, the report's authors said.

    "We're now in an era where climate change isn't some kind of future hypothetical," said the overall lead author of the report, Chris Field of the Carnegie Institution for Science in California. "We live in an area where impacts from climate change are already widespread and consequential."

    "Things are worse than we had predicted" in 2007, when the group of scientists last issued this type of report, said report co-author Saleemul Huq, director of the International Centre for Climate Change and Development at the Independent University in Bangladesh. "We are going to see more and more impacts, faster and sooner than we had anticipated."

    aren't we way under the curve that was projected in 2007?

    These loons act like the US has never had a draught or Europe has never flooded before. They remind me of the local weatherman every time a low pressure center gets within 2000 miles of us. The reason more people are being impacted are there are more people there to be impacted. Population growth is the real threat to this planet.

    I'd laugh but the loony left is dangerous.

    The crazy UN and our American, Liberal congressional leaders, are trying to establish, with the help of none other than Hilary Clinton, a new world order where the U.S. and all the other countries of the world are run by the UN. The first hint of this is spelled out in the Original Kyoto Treaty... Where the UN gets money in fines for CO2 emissions would be paid directly from Energy Plants (mostly in the U.S) straight to the the UN in order to establish itself (The UN) as a self-sustaining governing body complete with taxes like a country to support it. All thank to the American Energy sector.

    Obama couldn't get the American version of this boondoggle passed in an all Dem congress ( this bill is better known as the Cap & Trade) so he's doing it thought fiat instead... Meanwhile Boehner stands around with the other useless RINO's with their c@ks in their hands doing nothing but stroking themselves...

    All this starts with a "cause"... The UN and the Liberals' "cause" is a faux AGW claim... complete with more taxes for no other reason then to prop up The UN and it's global power grab.
