Lord Stern - Ignorant and Reckless
Now in a new book, the World Bank's former chief economist has warned the science he based his predictions on is out of date. He said levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere are already at 430 parts per million (ppm)..
Lord Stern warned that Florida and Bangladesh could disappear, alligators could survive at the North Pole and millions of people would have to migrate.
Lord Stern, who is to launch his book - A Blueprint for a Safer Planet - at a public lecture at LSE on Tuesday, said in the face of such evidence those who continue to deny climate change are "ignorant and reckless."
Call me ignorant and reckless but the global CO2 level hasn't reached 430ppm yet nor are future scenarios "evidence". Especially when the sea level would have to rise over 345 feet to submerge all of Florida and ten times that (3451 feet) to submerge Bangladesh's highest point Keokradong. Which would make alligators feel even more all-at-sea at the North Pole where the ocean bottom is 4300 feet below present sea level. And we all know how alligators love deep water...
Doesn't anyone do fact checking any more? Sorry, I forgot its the Telegraph.
