Humanity Wholly Unprepared for Abrupt Climate Impacts, Warns Report

Humanity Wholly Unprepared for Abrupt Climate Impacts, Warns Report | PlanetNews | Scoop.it

Common Dreams, December 4, 2013
HUMANITY WHOLLY UNPREPARED FOR ABRUPT CLIMATE IMPACTS, WARNS REPORT : 'The pace of change is orders of magnitude higher than what species have experienced in the last tens of millions of years.'

Those are at least two of the takeaways from a new report released by scientists in the National Academy of Sciences on December 3, 2013 which says the sudden impacts of climate change this century and beyond are inevitable but warn that far too little has been done to prepare for them.
