Professors Iain Stewart and Professor Kathy Sykes take a timely look at global warming ahead of the Copenhagen summit, exploring the world’s leading climate scientists’ vision of the planet’s future.

Scientists predict that if global temperatures continue to rise at their current rate, Earth will be one degree warmer within 10 years, two degrees warmer within the next 40 years and three degrees or more warmer before the end of the century.

If the Earth’s temperature increases to three degrees warmer than the average pre-industrial temperature, the impact on the planet will be catastrophic. Across the Earth, ways of life could be lost forever as climate change accelerates out of control. This isn’t inevitable, however: climate change is not yet irreversible.
Ingenious technology and science is currently being devised, advanced and tested around the world which could offer solutions for a sustainable future. The question that remains is, can the world embrace and implement them on a large enough scale within an effective time-line?

If widespread damage to human societies and ecosystems is to be prevented, global temperature rise must be slowed and eventually reversed. Hot Planet offers an accurate visual prediction of the planet’s future, based on the findings of over 4,000 climate scientists.

    Does anyone still believe this BS!?

      Hmmn, lets see. Who “believes” in the science of climate change? Only 98% of climatologists, every national academy of science, all western governments, the overwhelming majority of scientists over all disciplines. The evidence of anthropogenically induced climate change is incontrovertible. Whether or not you choose to believe it is wholly inconsequential.

      I have news that you might find shocking but ‘believing’ has absolutely no bearing on reality.

    Great stuff. Interestingly performed, convincing arguments- well maybe not for the few with little scientific understanding that are anti-reason for some bizar reason…

    Just more propaganda to get the Cap & Trade hoax in place. 
    Climate change has allways been there. 
    To think that we can do anything about it is god-complex-madness and makes no economic sense

    • Juanalberto33

      Cap and Trade might not the solution, but something must be done fast. I strongly suggest you watch Watch Earth – The Climate Wars PT 2/3 (part two of this series of three) Open your eyes Marc.

    The increase concentration of CO2 in the outer atmosphere lags global temperature rise by 800 years!!! So how in the world can anybody, let alone a scientist, suggest CO2 is driving climate change. Certainly never has before….
