How Long? Not long, Because what you reap, IS WHAT YOU SOW!

Depressing news today.

"The report issued today in Paris, a 21-page summary of a much longer study on the science behind climate change, concludes there is a greater than 90 percent chance that greenhouse gases from human activity are responsible for most of the steadily rising average global temperatures observed in the past 50 years."

I'm actually glad this report came out today. Not only does it have huge implications for our near-future, but it will hopefully stem alot of the political douchebaggery concerning global-warming.

Its happening, and at rates that exceed our ability to control it. So maybe all the pundits and arm-chair scientists can stop the bickering and work towards solutions.

I found it a little depressing to learn that there really isn't much we can do about it in the short term, and that mitigation strategies focus not on the establishment of "greener" technologies, but on planning for the inevitable global changes that we face - Like not building in coastal areas, etc...
