Doom-mongering, or extremely prescient?

I came across this article in RIA Novosti considering the Kyoto protocol, and its potential outcomes, by chance, and it makes for quite interesting reading. The author is one Viktor Danilov-Danilyan, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Now some of you will undoubtedly dismiss his considerations as outright doom-mongery, others may regard them as quite plausible forecasts of just what could happen in the decades to come.

I'll leave you to make up your own mind. Me? I just hope his prescience does not turn out to be overtly accurate!

Blimey, you roam far and wide!

Interesting that this is from senior bloke in a country not usually at teh forefront of climate-related pondering, especially when it comes to cutting back.

A new publication on me too. Nice they offer such a good English version.
