These Are The Kind Of Predictions I Like

The "Jean Dixon" type of prediction that, if be God willing, we'll live long enough to see turn out to be wrong:
Our planet is just five years away from climate change catastrophe - but can still be saved, according to a new report.

The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) warns governments have until 2012 to "plant the seeds of change" and make positive moves to limit carbon emissions.

If they fail to do so, the WWF's Vision For 2050 warns "generations to come will have to live with the compromises and hardships caused by their inability to act".

"We have a small window of time in which we can plant the seeds of change, and that is the next five years," James Leape, from the WWF, said.
I promise not to mock The World Wide Fund for Nature folks too harshly on May 15, 2012.

What about the clowns that say that we're too far gone? I thought there was supposed to be consensus.

As long as we're invited to prade along with the ridiculous, I suppose we better plant the "seeds of change" while we still have the means to water them.
