IPCC: Part Two

Well guys, Friday is the big day for the “official release” of the second report from the IPCC: it’s mostly been leaked already. Working Group 2 will release it’s report on the positive and negative impacts of global warming – “Impacts, Adaptation, And Vulnerability.” This should cause a new chain of conversation and rhetoric.

The early news is that food production in the temperate regions will increase. The tropics will suffer, and more species will become extinct. Initially the rich get richer and the poor become destitute.

One of the big changes for affluent nations and individuals will be the re-distribution of wealth from “eco-tourism.” Go to Africa now, then book your arctic tour – before there’s little to see.

Avoid Yellowstone – the courts and the diminishing snow will cause great uncertainty.

I’m going to wait for the report. If you want a sneak peek there are a few summary notes available at the sources listed below:
IPCC: Yeah, You Know Me,
Chaos & Effect,
Tropical Losers, Northern Winners From Warming?
Climate Draft Charts Extinctions,
Poor Nations To Bear Brunt As World Warms.

I’ll be shooting this weekend. I’m taking my fish pole and a camera, posts should continue, and the brevity will astound us both.
