Submission + - Catastrophic climate change might be unavoidable (guardian.co.uk)

alemaco writes: "'Climate scientist Kevin Anderson stood before his expert audience and contemplated a strange feeling. He wanted to be wrong [...] "As an academic I wanted to be told that it was a very good piece of work and that the conclusions were sound. [...] But as a human being I desperately wanted someone to point out a mistake, and to tell me we had got it completely wrong."'
According to the article, latest research into climate change shows that scientists undervalued the amount of CO2 developing economies are pumping into the atmosphere. It might be already too late to stop catastrophic climate change. This might mean the disappearing of 'hundreds of species, [...] extreme food and water shortages in vulnerable countries and [...] floods that would displace hundreds of millions of people'."
