Coverage continues on this week's report on global warming, which should dispel all doubt as to whether we created this climate-disrupting mess. A key passage:
Their report predicted severe heatwaves, droughts, storms and floods resulting from an expected rise of 3 degrees Celsius in average global temperatures by 2100. It will be difficult for governments to ignore because it was agreed by all UN members, including the US and China.
Six years in the making, the report is the most authoritative ever produced on climate change and will form the basis for negotiations on a possible successor to the Kyoto treaty, the main provisions of which expire in 2012.
The most succinct of many reports was in the Financial Times.
