Blair tells US to act on climate change
By Annabel Crabb
January 28, 2005
A speech by the British PM puts pressure on George Bush to listen to the world and join in the debate.
British Prime Minister Tony Blair has urged his US counterpart George Bush to listen to the rest of the world and take stronger action to reverse climate change.
Mr Blair used an influential speaking slot at the opening session of the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos, Switzerland, to increase pressure on Mr Bush.
"If America wants the rest of the world to be part of the agenda it has set, it must be part of their agenda, too," Mr Blair said.
"It can do so, secure in the knowledge that what people want is not for America to concede, but to engage.
"We may disagree about the nature of the problems and how to resolve them, but no nation, no matter how powerful, seriously believes today that these problems can be resolved alone." (continued)
Alarm at new climate warning
By Richard Black
BBC environment correspondent
Temperatures around the world could rise by as much as 11C, according to one of the largest climate prediction projects ever run.
This figure is twice the level that previous studies have suggested.
Scientists behind the project, called climateprediction.net, say it shows that a "safe" upper limit for carbon dioxide is impossible to define.
The results of the study, which used PCs around the world to produce data, are published in the journal Nature.
Climateprediction.net is run from Oxford University, and is a distributed computing project; rather than using a supercomputer to run climate models, people can download software to their own PCs, which run the programs during downtime.
More than 95,000 people have registered, from more than 150 countries; their PCs have between them run more than 60,000 simulations of future climate.

Does Blair really think there's a snowball's chance in hell that Dim Son will change course with respect to global warming and the Kyoto protocol (or anything else, for that matter?)
He must've somehow forgotten BushCo rule #1:
"ALWAYS put profit and crony capitalism before people and the common good."
BushCo rule #2:
"Never admit you are wrong and need to change course - even when evidence dictates."
