    The Stern report on the costs of addressing and failing to address the costs of climate change was issued in 2006. While not updated, the author of that report says that is underestimated the costs of the climate change.

    It will be interesting to compare what he wrote with what actually happens. For I do not see mankind addressing this problem at all.


    Global warming 'will be worse than expected' warns Stern | Environment | guardian.co.uk

    Politicians have failed to take on board the severe consequences of failing to cut world carbon emissions, Nicholas Stern, the economist who warned the government of the high cost of climate change, said today.

    Stern told a meeting of climate change scientists in Copenhagen that the effects of global warming would be worse than he predicted in his seminal 2006 report on the economics of the problem. He said policy-makers needed to think more about the likely impact of severe temperature rises of 6C or more.

    Speaking after a keynote speech at the conference, Stern said: "Do the politicians understand just how difficult it could be? Just how devastating 4, 5, 6 degrees centigrade would be? I think not yet. Looking back, the Stern review underestimated the risks and underestimated the damage from inaction."

    You don't really get the point of the discussion, do you? It's laughable that you'd talk about common sense and then post something so clueless!

    What is clueless is your position on CO2.

    Logic is clueless?!?!

    The heat-trapping properties of CO2 and other GHGs are well documented.

    The concentration of GHGs in the atmosphere, including some potent ones not found in nature, has been going up since the advent of the Industrial Revolution.

    Therefore, if the trend continues, warming is inevitable.


    Find the flaw in that and then get back to me.

    That's irrelevant to the discussion and doesn't address the syllogism I presented. Please try again. As for volcanoes, humans relase more GHGs in a day than all the volcanoes in the world do in a year.

    Which produces more CO2, volcanic or human activity?
