IPCC says reduce emissions 50%

From Yahoo! News via AP (link expired): “To avoid the worst, the Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change said, emissions should be reduced by 25 percent to 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2020. Greenhouse and other heat-trapping gases should be reduced at least by half by 2050, they added.”

It’s about time we cut emissions. Since CO2 is a greenhouse gas and we exhale CO2 then all we have to do is to stop breathing half as often! We need to figure a way to stop half of the volcanoes from erupting too. It might have helped if all of the people that went to this conference had walked instead of flying. I’m going to go idle my SUV to keep the garage warm.
