Nobel Laureates’ terrible warning

Look at January's "Obama" video (from the post below) first and then follow this link to the very recent "St James's Palace declaration" which ratchets up the urgency a lot.

Prince Charles and Jonathan Porritt were involved. The St James’s Palace memorandum, signed today (May 28th) by 20 Nobel laureates in physics, chemistry, economics, peace and literature states, amongst a whole lot of other stuff that world carbon emissions must start to decline in only six years if humanity is to stand a chance of preventing dangerous global warming.

The St James’s Palace memorandum was agreed after three days of discussions attended by 60 leading scientists, policymakers and intellectuals. Participants included Steven Chu, the US Energy Secretary and Nobel physics laureate, Wole Solinka, the Nigerian literature laureate, and Wangari Maathai, the first environmentalist to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

Here's a link to a video of the declaration.
