BRUSSELS, Belgium: The Earth faces increased hunger and water shortages in the poorest countries, massive floods and avalanches in Asia and species extinction unless nations adapt to climate change and halt its progress, according to a report approved Friday by an international conference on global warming.The story goes on to explain how the European Union is going to have to try to convince George Bush, at the G8 Summit in June, to join in international efforts to control emissions of fossil fuels.
Agreement came after an all-night session during which key sections were deleted from the draft and scientists angrily confronted government negotiators who they feared were watering down their findings.
The United States, China and Saudi Arabia raised many of the objections to the phrasing, often seeking to tone down the certainty of some of the more dire projections.
The final IPCC report is the clearest and most comprehensive scientific statement to date on the impact of global warming mainly caused by man-induced carbon dioxide pollution.
"The poorest of the poor in the world — and this includes poor people in prosperous societies — are going to be the worst hit," said Pachauri. "People who are poor are least able to adapt to climate change."
The report said up to 30 percent of the Earth's species face an increased risk of vanishing if global temperatures rise 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above the average in the 1980s and 1990s.
Bushie's scientists probably told him that global warming will harm poor people the most. Nice 'christian' country he represents, eh?

From Think Progress:
IS GORE MORE DANGEROUS THAN GLOBAL WARMING?
Today, Fox News’s Your World with Neil Cavuto did a segment devoted to making the case that “Albert Gore is a very dangerous man.” Energy CEO Bob Murray said, “Albert Gore is the shaman of global goofiness, and we’d better not be listening to him.” He added that the “science is [still] out” on global warming. Murray, a major GOP contributor, was one of the members of Vice President Dick Cheney’s energy task force.
