Global Warming Deniers are rolling the dice for the rest of us.

Rolling the dice on climate change is a stupid idea, as Pascal well understood 300 years ago.


Here's the link to the IPCC  report itself.

UN sends global warming alert | World | BigPond News
Climate change experts say a new UN report shows deadly extreme weather events will increase unless nations tackle global warming.

An Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report released overnight states that global warming is leading to such severe storms, droughts and heatwaves that nations should prepare for an unprecedented onslaught of dangerous and costly weather disasters.

In the past, the IPCC, founded in 1988 by the UN, has focused on the slow inexorable rise of temperatures and oceans as part of global warming.

The latest report is the first to look at the less common but far more noticeable extreme weather changes which recently have cost on average about $77 billion a year in damage.

Sounds like end-times stuff to me; in which case we have much more to tackle than global warming. Pestilence, wars, and rumors of cats and dogs sleeping together - wait, strike that last part!

Whew!

Your global warming faith is predicting the end of the world with your "deadly extreme" comment?

Didn't a preacher in California get in trouble for doing the same thing, recently?

Are you the local warming archbishop, taking orders from the cardinals in this religious order?

You must have had a pretty passionate worship conference to get all worked up like this and renew your divine ability, and fallacy, to control the climate.

Your anti-plant and anti-tree faith is strong...we better check with the freedom from religion foundation and see how they feel about that.
