      Consensus grows on climate change

      The global scientific body on climate change will report soon that only
      greenhouse gas emissions can explain freak weather patterns.
      Simultaneous changes in sea ice, glaciers, droughts, floods, ecosystems,
      ocean acidification and wildlife migration are taking place. The
      Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change had previously said gases such as
      CO2 were "probably" to blame. Its latest draft report will be sent to
      world governments next month. A source told the BBC: "The measurements
      from the natural world on all parts of the globe have been anomalous over
      the past decade. "If a few were out of kilter we wouldn't be too
      worried, because the Earth changes naturally. But the fact that they are
      virtually all out of kilter makes us very concerned." He said the
      report would forecast that a doubling of greenhouse gas concentrations in
      the atmosphere would bring a temperature rise of 2-4.5C, or maybe higher.
      This is an increase on projections in the last IPCC
      report, which suggested that the rise could be as little as 1.5C.
      Uncertainties remain The scientists will say there is still great
      uncertainty about the pace and scope of future change, although by the end
      of the century global temperatures could increase by up to 5.8C. The
      doubling of CO2 from pre-industrial stable levels (270 parts per million) is
      expected to happen around the middle of the century. Extreme
      weather events indicate man-made change, the IPCC says

      What really worries the scientists is that we are already seeing major
      disruptions despite having increased CO2 by just 30%. A recent
      scientific report commissioned by the UK government warned that the world
      might already be fixed on a path that would begin melting the Greenland ice
      cap. That in turn would start raising sea levels throughout the world.
      There will be sceptics, predominantly in the US, who will accuse the IPCC of
      trying to scare policy-makers into action with their report. But the
      broad international expert consensus embodied in the IPCC will make it
      harder for the US administration to say that climate change is a problem for
      the future which can be solved by technological advances. In a meeting
      with climate campaigners, UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said the world needed
      to engage the Americans, Chinese and Indians in agreement over a figure for
      CO2 stabilisation. But this is unlikely to happen while US President
      George W Bush is in office; his
      representative told the December climate conference in Montreal that the
      US would not agree any targets for reducing CO2. President Bush's chief
      adviser, James Connaughton, said recently that it was pointless discussing a
      safe CO2 level, as we could not be sure how resistant the world would be to
      greenhouse gases. Maybe we could double CO2 with impunity, or maybe we
      could increase it threefold or fourfold; the issue was not worth discussing,
      he said. Targets and timetables needed Mr Blair echoed President
      Bush's call for new technologies to combat climate change. But both men
      were told by international business leaders last year that more expensive
      new technologies would not supplant cheap dirty technologies unless
      governments set binding targets and timetables for reducing greenhouse
      gases, which the US has rejected. There is little sign of
      President Bush changing direction on climate

      The prime minister confirmed that his long-delayed climate strategy review
      would be published this month, and would strive to meet his unilateral
      target of cutting Britain's CO2 emissions by 20% by 2010. BBC News has
      been told that the central policy in the review, the CO2 cut for big
      business, is still being contested, with the prime minister's industry
      adviser Geoffrey Norris urging a more lax target than the one demanded by
      the environment department Defra. Central figures in the review process
      are now admitting that the 20% target will be virtually impossible to hit,
      and are looking for a "respectable" near miss. The definition of
      "respectable" is still under ferocious debate.
