Climate change warning: ‘We’re sick of having our messages lost in political noise’

The Guardian’s David Adam reports on the general frustration and urgency present in the presentations in Copenhagen.  

Great audio clip can be found here.  

The message might sound familiar, it is that we have to act and we have to act now.  But the scientists have been saying it for a while and they’ve lost a little bit of patience.  One scientist said to me, “Enough is enough, we’ve lost patience, get your act together.”

Almost all of the numbers your looking at are going in the wrong direction.  Carbon emissions are much higher than anyone thought possible, temperatures could rise faster than people realise, and that the impacts of these increased temperatures could be worse than we thought.
