The case for a sustainability emergency
Climate Code Red: The Case for a Sustainability Emergency is a new report out of Australia that "is a jolting break from the soft-pedaling and dangerous compromises that have led climate policy to accept greenhouse gas levels that lock in catastrophe." The report summary states, "The loss in summer of all eight million square kilometres of Arctic sea-ice now seems inevitable, and may occur as early as 2010, a century ahead of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change projections." In an interview the co-author said, "effects are going to be quite considerable, way beyond the obvious increase in sea level rise." Use this handy map to see how your house fares with a 0 to 14m sea level rise.
