Significant Other actually sent me this link

to which I replied:

Isn't this lovely?

Run out and buy food and ammo before anybody else sees the program - and then notices that the leaves are literally turning brown and falling off the trees, and the seas are full of expanding dead zones from acidification.

the description should be amended a bit:

"Many experts say we have to start seriously reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2015, (or we may pass) BECAUSE WE HAVE ALREADY PASSED a point of no return.

Scientists predict that by 2020, global catastrophes (may well begin) HAVE ALREADY BEGUN to accelerate. The human population (is expected to explode) IS EXPLODING AT 6 BILLION NOW AND 9 BILLION IN JUST TWENTY YEARS and animal species (may be) ARE dying off at a rapid rate of 30,000 species PER YEAR. As the world becomes more chaotic, the costs of mending it would grow more and more daunting. By 2030, gradually rising temperatures (may have) ALREADY shifted rainfall patterns around the globe, and many experts warn much of the world (may face) IS GOING TO FACE serious shortages of our most basic need -- water."
