A Global Warning
"This is the most important report on the future published by this Government in its time in office.
Some will always make a case for doubt in an issue such as this, partly because its implications are so frightening. But what is not in doubt is that the scientific evidence of global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions is now overwhelming. It is not in doubt that if the science is right, the consequences for our planet are literally disastrous. And this disaster is not set to happen in some science fiction future, many years ahead, but in our lifetime.
What is more, unless we act now, not some time distant but now, these consequences, disastrous as they are, will be irreversible..."
Tony Blair at the launch of the Stern Review, 30/10/2006.
