New study hits climate sceptics. Video.

From Reuters’ original via the Russian News & Information Agency, Novosti. Pretty good. RIA Novosti has several stories on climate change running now, The heated debate on climate change, being one that made me think “Oh, no, here we go again …” as I read through the list of alternative theories, then, with a grateful smile, I reached these concluding paragraphs:

I believe that the best approach is the one taken by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which brings together scientists from different fields and insists on a comprehensive analysis of global warming. Its fourth and latest report, published earlier this year, deals with the impact of both man-made and natural factors on the warming process.

The same logic stands behind the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and the Kyoto Protocol, which drew up a plan for reducing greenhouse emissions. How can we reduce humankind’s influence on the atmosphere? By saving energy and increasing production efficiency, using alternative and renewable energy sources, preserving forests and raising our technological and ecological standards.

That was a relief!

The other day, I was reading the amusing tale about the 151st band at Live Earth, which just happened to be in Budapest, Hungary so it didn’t get a lot of coverage! (To be honest, it was probably all to the good that Quentin and Crisp did not get a lot of coverage, as I saw them on YouTube and that was enough for me.)

Despite that, it is fascinating to discover the way other countries, especially those we rarely hear from online, present the issues that matter to them with respect to climate change.  There is also the wonderful world of web that circulates these resources … so I hear about a Reuters video made in England when I was there, via Russian News, while I am in the United States a week later, and can watch multiple versions on demand.  My grandparents would marvel at this small interconnected world we live in now.
