Global Temperature May Rise By Eleven Degrees This Century

There’s plenty of debate over just how much global temperatures will rise during the twenty-first century due to global warming. The Guardian reports that the latest study suggests an across-the-board temperature increase of 6C (approximately 11 degrees Fahrenheit):

The new study is the most comprehensive analysis to date of how economic changes and shifts in the way people have used the land in the past five decades have affected the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere.

“The global trends we are on with CO2 emissions from fossil fuels suggest that we’re heading towards 6C of global warming,” said Corinne Le Quéré of the University of East Anglia who led the study with colleagues at the British Antarctic Survey.

    11 degrees..? A week ago it was 6.. four months ago it was 3.. and the temperature is actually dropping while scientists worldwide are admitting to fiddling with result figures in order to manipulate for the “Greater Good”.

    This wreaks of exactly what it is.. a load of sensationalist, wannabe propaganda nonsense.. And just in time for the Copenhagen summit.. with a strong treaty signed at Copenhagen and the framework for a global government created, this whole Global warming this will fizzle out like all other fads while we transfer 2% of our wealth a year to China & India in return for EU/US control over levels of their economic and political policy.. All this happening under the guise of “Global Warming” when in fact the main driving issue, even before climate change, is actually the upcoming catastrophe of Peak oil which without immediate action, will stall our economies in 30 odd years.

    Constant political games. I hope people can see this.

      Yeah, we see it. Unfortunately, as Agent Kay said: “A person is smart. People are dumb.”

      The individual knows we are dangerously surfing a wave of crap, but “the people” are too disinterested to act.
