Climate Change Disaster looms despite Durban Agreement

Juan Cole has the scoop on the latest projections on global warming. It's scary, but true.
The most plausible solution to the world’s energy problems is solar, as with the Desertec Project in Egypt and Morocco. ... we aren’t moving nearly quickly enough on that front to avert disasters like the complete loss of the Netherlands and the Egyptian Delta and all of Bangladesh. I guess the question is now whether we can stop at a 3 degrees C. increase, or go on up to 5 degrees C. and lose one third of the world’s land surface.
