Global Warming

Global Warming
The Science page article on global warming in the Daily Telegraph of 29th Sept. 2004 began by stating: “The Earth's atmosphere is so polluted that the planet is dying.” In a speech on 14th Sept. 2004, UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said he was “shocked” by the latest scientific forecasts on the “alarming and unsustainable” consequences of global warming, adding that even in his lifetime the impact on the world could be so far-reaching and “irreversible in its destructive power” that it altered human existence radically. For “the latest scientific forecasts” we will turn to Dr Mayer Hillman, Senior Fellow Emeritus, Policy Studies Institute, who wrote the book, How We Can Save the Planet (Penguin, 2004), and an article in The Independent Review of 27th May 2004.
