Submission + - Irreversible Climate Change in 5 Years (guardian.co.uk)

iONiUM writes: "As a follow up to the previous slashdot story, there has been a new release by the IEA indicating that within 5 years we will have irreversible climate change. According to the IEA, "There are few signs that the urgently needed change in direction in global energy trends is under way. Although the recovery in the world economy since 2009 has been uneven, and future economic prospects remain uncertain, global primary energy demand rebounded by a remarkable 5% in 2010, pushing CO2 emissions to a new high. Subsidies that encourage wasteful consumption of fossil fuels jumped to over $400bn (£250.7bn).""
