Global warming: passing the 'tipping point'
Our special investigation reveals that critical rise in world temperatures is now unavoidable

A crucial global warming "tipping point" for the Earth, highlighted only last week by the British Government, has already been passed, with devastating consequences.
Research commissioned by The Independent reveals that the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has now crossed a threshold, set down by scientists from around the world at a conference in Britain last year, beyond which really dangerous climate change is likely to be unstoppable.
I'd be all, like, worried and shit about this except that we have the good folks at the Association of British Drivers (WTF? - ed.), who have absolutely no agenda here whatsoever, no sir, to tell us that global warming doesn't exist. Them and the Bush adminstration.
