Good call..

Just in from SScience JC’s take on the Aussie Commission’s Report. I like the summary most of which relates keenly.. (my highlighting)

In short, there are a lot of diverse risks associated with continued climate change. While there is a significant amount of uncertainty associated with some of these risks, we can’t simply hope they won’t happen or pretend the risks don’t exist. Risk assessment and management involves taking all potential risks into account and determining the most effective way to reduce them… [cut]

Unmentioned, and entirely understandable thus far in a pertinent evidence-based approach is policy — assuming a political solutions possible in this regard — without which a sizeable risk remains in existence. It will help, I think, for policy people to ask themselves how much bad policy has contributed to any particular state of affairs or situation. Doing nothing, as the man says above, can only serve more bad results. And the reason: because climate change is occurring both with and without human beings’ output.

Grabbing the Report looks intelligent, if you’ve the time..
