Current technology, and fuel based on carbon and oil is driving the world towards disaster.
Frozen Methane could be liberated if a temperature change of 5 to 6 celsius degrees is reached in the following 10 to 100 years.

    Nov 12 2013: If you investigate, the situation in Fukushima is out of control. The radiation leakage to the pacific ocean is inevitable. All the sea currents are driving contaminated water to the American Coast. Radioactive Water mainly with Cesium 147 is getting into America. The Government is doing mainly nothing, and the sea species are dying.
    Check on Canadian Fisheries, having big trouble to find what to catch.
    Check on all the dolphins and other big mammals dying for unknown reasons.

    So, Climate Change is not only based on emissions, but on hazardous behavior and risks taken in the name of Technology damaging the complete planetary ecosystem.
