IPCC pt2: required reading

The IPCC report on the likely impacts of climate change came out on friday: BBC summary, and the actual report

You've got to worry about the timing; one of the quietest news reading and viewing days of the year. Especially as the report was delayed by govt officials wanting to dilute & delete certain sections. Also compare this: "The Europeans want to send a strong signal. The US does not want as much quantification," one official told the French news agency AFP.... with the official position from Bush administration, that they will only make a few cautious changes while waiting for hard scientific evidence: bush speech on climate change

[Note to climate change deniers; dont bother, I'll just delete you :]
