UN panel gives dire warming forecast

Global warming is "unequivocal" and carbon dioxide already in the atmosphere commits the world to an eventual rise in sea levels of up to 4.6 feet, the world's top climate experts warned Saturday in their most authoritative report to date.

"Only urgent, global action will do," said U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, calling on the United States and China -- the world's two biggest polluters -- to do more to slow global climate change.

Bad news all the way around. Whether it's a natural cycle or human induced, the water is starting to boil the frog.

I still don't see a global "Manhattan Project" happening, the mega-corps are planning to exploit climate change to their advantage.

Are the mega-corps planning to survive a global crisis where half of the population could perish?
