The Guardian (via Kottke) reports that the Fourth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, assembled by several thousand climate experts, many with radically differing views, agrees that global climate change is our doing, and it is going to be drastic and swift.

I'm coming to think that the suggestion of The Economist several years ago that we figure out how to live with the climate we have created may be the only option. We may very well have forfeited our other choices.

If so, it will be a wild, expensive, and tragic ride.
