    Headline: In bleak report, U.N. says drastic action is only way to avoid worst effects of climate change

    Key info:

    Tuesday’s U.N. report offers a grim assessment of how off-track the world remains. Global temperatures are on pace to rise as much as 3.9 degrees Celsius (7 degrees Fahrenheit) by the end of the century, according to the United Nations’ annual “emissions gap” report . . .

      The consensus is overwhelming.. we must act now!!!!

      One thing I am certain about, if I had to entrust the lives of our loved ones and the fate of humanity to any one body it would certainly be the UN.

          For every ice statue not sculpted by Alaska , there is a forest that California sends up in smoke as an offering to climate change. So it's win win.

                          • 69°F yesterday in my hometown of Louisville, a record high for Christmas Day. We’re enjoying cooler but still mild weather in Colorado, highs closer to 50.
