New UN report on climate change leaked, predicts global temperature rise by 9 degrees by 2100
A new United Nations report warns that global temperatures could rise by 9 degrees Fahrenheit over the century, and that the effect on civilization, especially poorer coastal countries, is even more than could have been imagined as recently as 2007. Fox News has a basic story here.
