Reacting to the World Meteorological Organisation report today (Monday 21 November), warning that the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere reached a new high in 2010 and the rate of increase has accelerated, Friends of the Earth's Executive Director Andy Atkins said

"Over recent years we've been sleepwalking towards a climate disaster - it seems we've now broken into a sprint.The world must wake up to the enormous threat we all face and agree tough international action at next month's UN climate talks in South Africa.

"The wealthiest nations must take a lead by agreeing legally-binding cuts to wean their economies off gas, coal and oil - and providing funds for poorer countries to develop cleanly.The time for excuses is over as climate change is already starting to bite - it's time for real international leadership."

This is all irrelevant. Mankind only has a finite time on this planet. Has only been here for a brief instant of its 5 billion year life and will be gone just as soon. The planet will revolve on till it too is consumed by a massive event.

In any case CO2, a trace gas on which all life depends, at about 380 PPM is still at the historic low and life was grand at about 5 times the level. So aren't you all ashamed at you doom-mongering scare stories? 

So why do Greens keep on about what we should and shouldn't do? Let us and our kids and grand kids enjoy its current state without fear and worry or the kind of penury that the profiteers of all this are demanding as they fill their pockets.
