Subject: Latest Research: Global Warming has been UNDERestimated

The United States faces the possibility of much more rapid climate
change by the end of the century than previous studies have suggested,
according to a new report led by the U.S. Geological Survey.

The survey -- which was commissioned by the U.S. Climate Change
Science Program and issued this month -- expands on the 2007 findings
of the United Nations Intergovernment Panel on Climate Change. Looking
at factors such as rapid sea ice loss in the Arctic and prolonged
drought in the Southwest, the new assessment suggests that earlier
projections may have underestimated the climatic shifts that could
take place by 2100.

So we're back to global warming? Last I heard the PC term was "climate
change" because "global warming" just wasn't cutting it, what with the
widespread cooling.

Wild swings between extremes. Can you survive them?
