Further Evidence That Global Warming's Getting Worse: Pollution, Disease & Planetary Food Riots Are Coming

terrible consequences set out (once again) in this report:
Further Evidence That Global Warming's Getting Worse: Pollution, Disease & Planetary Food Riots Are Coming By Charles P. Pierce at 2:20PM

Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron. - Dwight D. Eisenhower
