    What would a 6c temperature charge look like in 87 years? I'm expected that the climate zones will shift a few hundred miles.

    The planet will be a little different.

    Now...surely there is some sort of graph out there showing just how miserable we'll all be in 87 years...and how migration will change.

    Matthew...you're slippin' up man! :D

    African Leaders Criticize Climate Proposals by Developed World
    December 03, 2012 - Africa came to the Doha climate change summit with a basket of expectations. But the first full week of negotiations have not been promising. Campaigners say rich countries have been evasive on almost every major issue, from climate finance to the reduction of emissions.

    THe world would be wetter. Growing seasons would be longer by at least a couple of months and growing zones for most of our staple foods would be much larger so agricultural output would be through the roof. Deserts would probably be greening up nicely, and third world nations plagued by drought and famine would in all likelyhood begin to become self sufficient insofar as food goes.

    Of course. Just like the droughts in Russia and the US have improved food production. Like the floods in Thailand and Pakistan have improved food production in those nations.

    Coalition Seeks Emergency Actions on Mississippi R - Waterways Today



    The American Waterways Operators (AWO), National Waterways Conference (NWC), Waterways Council Inc. (WCI) and 15 other national organizations have submitted a letter to President Obama and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) requesting a presidential declaration of emergency and seeking “immediate assistance in averting an economic catastrophe in the heartland of the United States.”

    The publicly distributed letter calls attention to the worsening situation on the Mississippi River, which the groups say has already seen near historic low water levels that have restricted barge traffic on water transportation system since this summer. The groups add that the existing crisis has been heightened even further as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has begun reducing the water to the Mississippi River from dams on the upper Missouri River.

    As a result of the drought and the actions of the USACE, the groups say the reduced flow of the Mississippi River has exposed rock pinnacles near Thebes and Grand Tower, Ill., potentially halting the flow of river commerce between St. Louis and New Orleans by mid-December.
