Earth warming in 2013

The latest round of public Earth Warming consultation through the IPCC Climate conference, showed that the results are widely published here. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-24292615

The findings are nothing new and do not change a lot from the Sunday newspapers revelations already published in my blog a few years back.

Then the Chinese were shown as a prime example of bad policies. In fact the world uses China to get cheap goods and little was thought either in China or the world about the impact this has on the worldwide environment.

Until now the Chinese delegate spoke of the bad impact it has when the Chinese also have 5 cars per family as the Americans do.

It is just a sign of people’s inability to practise what they preach. Government still hails new car manufacturing jobs to keep the workers happy, they forget that the production of steel and more and more cars and burning of fossil fuels is the cause for our demise.

The government wants to extract more oil, more gas. The IPCC suggests a price on carbon, that means live will become unaffordable for the poor.

Once land becomes more scarce the poor are going to be perched into camps, and he rich will take all good land.

Women do benefit from employment and if jobs were to go from manufacturing then women would feel the brunt. Government should change living habits to more environmentally friendly instead of investing in fossil fuel based industries.
