Climate accord loopholes could spell 4.2-degree rise in temperature and end of coral reefs by 2100
A global temperature increase of up to 4.2 º C and the end of coral reefs could become reality by 2100 if national targets are not revised in the Copenhagen Accord, the international pledge which was agreed at last year's Copenhagen's COP15 climate change conference.
Looking at individual countries' agreed targets for emission levels, the report shows that many developed countries such as the USA and the European Union have set their aims very low, aiming at reaching emission levels just a few percent lower than 1990 levels by 2020. Only Japan and Norway are aiming to drastically reduce their emission to 25% and 30 to 40% below 1990 levels respectively.

Everyone knows that polar bears need ice to live. Specifically, sea ice. And the decline of sea ice throughout the Arctic--driven by global warming--is the principle reason that polar bears are now in so much peril.
Flashback: Polar Bear Testimony Suppressed Due to 'Inconvenient' Truths | NewsBusters.org
Dr Mitchell Taylor has been researching the status and management of polar bears in Canada and around the Arctic Circle for 30 years, as both an academic and a government employee. More than once since 2006 he has made headlines by insisting that polar bear numbers, far from decreasing, are much higher than they were 30 years ago. Of the 19 different bear populations, almost all are increasing or at optimum levels, only two have for local reasons modestly declined.
Carlin Economics and Science » How Big Brother Is Using the National Parks and Other Agencies to Promote His Climate Religion Using Your Tax Dollars
...I think the answer to these questions should be for Federal agencies to get out of the climate change education business. Big Brother should not be attempting to sell his religious views to students or park visitors. Since the Administration appears unlikely to do this on its own, probably the easiest way to implement such restrictions is to prohibit the expenditure of Federal funds for the purpose of promoting climatism to the public.
