Business as (un)usual

MIT's new research is sobering reading for anyone who thinks that we can continue along the current business as usual, there's an uncomfortable scale of challenge:

"The new projections, published this month in the American Meteorological Society's Journal of Climate, indicate a median probability of surface warming of 5.2 degrees Celsius by 2100, with a 90% probability range of 3.5 to 7.4 degrees. This can be compared to a median projected increase in the 2003 study of just 2.4 degrees"

Wales is still working hard to take a global lead, where there are some genuinely exciting things happening, including one organisation, the Countryside Council for Wales, committing to a 6% per annum CO2 reduction and the Minister for Environment, Sustainability and Housing, Jane Davidson, talking publicly about the need to consider 'CO2 reduction rates as high as 9 or 10% per year'. Strong stuff - ans we're building the action plans to help make this a reality.
