Report: Global Warming Approaching Critical Point

An international climate change task force warned G-8 leading industrial nations that "an ecological time-bomb is ticking away." The report warned of "climatic tipping points" such as the Greenland and West Antarctic ice sheets melting and the Gulf Stream shutting down. Basically what happens in that crappy movie The Day After Tomorrow.

Senator Olympia Snowe (R) and Stephen Byers, a close confidant of Tony Blair co-chaired the task force, which issued the report Monday to encourage Blair's involvement in securing U.S. cooperation in tackling climate change after pulling out of the Kyoto accord.
