Abuse and incompetence in fight against global warming - The Guardian
"A Guardian investigation has found evidence of serious irregularities at the heart of the process the world is relying on to control global warming.
The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), which is supposed to offset greenhouse gases emitted in the developed world by selling carbon credits from elsewhere, has been contaminated by gross incompetence, rule-breaking and possible fraud by companies in the developing world, according to UN paperwork, an unpublished expert report and alarming feedback from projects on the ground."
A change in the moral climate? - Sir David Attenborough speaks about Global Warming in The Guardian.
"The environmentalist and veteran broadcaster said: "I am perfectly persuaded that the issue about global warming is a real one and we are headed for a great worsening of the conditions on this planet for life of all kinds. I have no doubt whatsoever of the cause, which is the byproducts of humanity's activities, and therefore we should be curbing them."
But it would be very difficult to impose limits on people's actions, such as their freedom to fly. "It is pie in the sky to say that everybody has got to stop doing everything. That's why the emphasis is on waste," he said, "Me of all people. I have spent my life swanning around the world on aeroplanes. How could I suddenly turn around and say it is wrong? What I'm saying is that we shouldn't be doing it for no good reason."
Sir David was speaking in advance of his Joseph Rotblat memorial lecture at the Guardian Hay festival today. Prof Rotblat was a nuclear physicist who received the Nobel peace prize for his campaign against nuclear weapons. The lecture is staged by the Weapons of Mass Destruction Awareness Programme and speakers are chosen annually for their significant contribution to communicating scientific issues to the public. Sir David will use his lecture to talk about the consequences of climate change for the natural world."
