couple of questions for one of your experts

whoever is available as my deadline is Friday noon (UK time)

1) The earth is getting warmer and scientists predict increasing droughts, floods
and extreme weather- can you please discuss the worse scenarion for the next 100
years?
a rise in Earth's temperature, sea levels, icemelting, biodiveristy threatened-
speciesin danger- areas most affected

The worst scenario is that Greenland starts to melt rapidly leading to a much
larger sea-level rise than estimated by IPCC.


2) Are human activities to blame? (ie greenhouse gas emissions) or is nature going
through an enciromental circle as some other surveys suggest

Humans are to blame


3) With humanity demanding more from the Earth than ever before, what are planet's
most pressing environmental problems?

Global Warming


4) Can climate change be tackled? How? What do you urge the International community
to do? Is Britain playing a key role in saving the planet?

Britain and Europe are playing the leading roles. It has to be tackled at the
govt level, but recent news reports indicate that G8 (with Germany leading)
are not having much success persuading the US and Japan to do anything.


5) Is EU leading a Kyoto carbon revolution- what is the role of the US and China

The latter two don't seem to do anything. They dispute the science.


6) Can you give us a couple of tips that we could follow in everday life (ie switch
off the electrical appliances when not in use) in order to help the environment

Encourage alternative energy options (involving renewables) and change lighting
to more energy saving bulbs and likewise buy more energy efficient applicances
elsewhere in the home.





ps- if there is any UEA survey on climate change please email me some info and add
anything else you might feel it's important
