To be blunt, I consider to put statements like: "a global underclass develops.. crime, drug dependence, homelessness and suicide rates increase...religous cults spring up everywhere....etc.." is guarantee to kill the entire SRES process and all work done thus far. Your literary "creativity" drive risks of destroying the entire hard work put into this by a large number of people, without any intellectual/scientific basis. I distance myself strongly from such statements and I guess others feel like that too. I request that you delete the entire paragraph beginning with "While international economic....." and ending with "...social malaise of teh world."
The Special Report on Emissions Scenarios (SRES) is a report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that was published in 2000.
