IPCC Reports Quick Action Can Avert Worst Climate Impacts

BANGKOK, Thailand, May 4, 2007 (ENS) – Catastropic global warming can be avoided without excessive economic cost but the world must begin to act at once, a UN climate change panel representing 2,500 international scientists said today.
The world community could slow and then reduce global emissions of greenhouse gases over the next several decades by utilizing cost-effective policies and current and emerging technologies, says the new assessment by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, IPCC.
"If we continue to do what we are doing now, we are in deep trouble," said Ogunlade Davidson of Sierra Leone, who served as co-chair of the IPCC Working Group that produced the report with Bert Metz from the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency.
"This report is all about solutions to climate change," Davidson said.
