We're not doomed, but we are in danger: Gwynne Dyer
EDMONTON - The Bush era of climate-change denial will end the moment Barack Obama steps into the White House, predicts author and international affairs analyst Gwynne Dyer.

"The denial industry is in full retreat," says Dyer, whose latest book is Climate Wars.

"We'll be into an international carbon trading system in four to eight years, and possibly a U.S. ban on non-conventional oil."
"I was in India 18 months ago and a new study showed they are already two degrees hotter than 1990," he says. With every two degrees more of warming, food production will drop by 25 per cent, according to the study, and India barely feeds itself at this point.
A warmer climate may be a good thing for countries already inured to the cold, like Canada
