WHAT'S THE DEAL WITH TWO DEGREES?

The news is filled with converstions about the G8 summit and the fact that countries of the G8 voted to approve a target of 2° C rise in global average temperature above the natural, preanthropogenic climate. (And preanthropogenic means before human activity--I had to look it up)

People are arguing that 2 degrees isn't a lot to worry about or it's far too much. Good discussions in the issue over at Real Climate.

Check out summer reading of
Dire Predictions, Understanding Global Warming: The Illustrated Guide to the Findings of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change). This book by two Penn State climate scientists presents easy to understand information. And, don't forget to support your independent bookstores!
