Tsunami Danger…Tomorrow [updated]
[Great news! It didn’t happen. No big “global warming induced” wave. Lives saved but also little attention paid to the “Countdown to global catastrophe” environmentalist report (click link in title above to see article). Hopefully no one working at environmental organizations is considering real-world terrorism to draw media attention to environmental conferences and reports (as the fictional environmental organizations do in Michael Crichton’s novel, “The State of Fear.”) For a Hollywood portrayal of a similar and far more deadly action by hard-core environmentists, see the very scary Bruce Willis action movie “12 Monkeys.”]

Those who have read Michael Crichton’s new novel, “The State of Fear,” will recognize the tsunami danger this headline, and tomorrow’s big climate report, represents: “Countdown to global catastrophe,” (The Independent Online, UK).
The story tells of a “high-level” report being issued tomorrow (1/25/05) titled “Meeting the Climate Challenge” from a task force of “senior politicians, business leaders, and academics.” The report claims (or at least the news stories about the report claim), the world has only ten years to mend its ways and reduce CO2 emissions. A couple natural disasters today and tomorrow would help focus media attention on this report.
This morning’s Drudge Report puts this article link right above the huge “Blizzard Buries Boston” headline and picture (the headline and link moved down at 7 am PST). It could already be too late to stop abrupt climate change! But it’s not too late to buy and read and encourage others to read “The State of Fear.”
