Climate Change passes key threshold
"As of mid-2005 there was about 455 parts per million of what's called carbon dioxide equivalent, and that's a figure that's gathered by taking the potential of all 30 greenhouse gases and converting them into carbon dioxide potential," Australian scientist Tim Flannery told ABC Television.
According to some predictions, at this carbon dioxide level, massive ice sheets could start collapsing, rain forests will begin burning down at increasing rates and biodiversity will begin to decline more rapidly. Global negative impact on agriculture and massive human dislocation could occur.
