Dangerous climate change - is the world on the brink?

Evidence that greenhouse gas emissions will cause serious and widespread interference with the world's climate has mounted significantly, a major scientific conference heard in February.1 New findings suggest that acidification of the oceans may threaten entire marine ecosystems, and concerns that global warming may trigger melting of the polar ice caps and the shutdown of the Gulf Stream have risen to a new level. An emerging consensus suggests that to avoid the worst impacts, global temperature rise needs to be limited to 2ÂșC - but this requires concerted and urgent action, aiming towards a halving of global emissions by the middle of the century.
