Default World Bank report on climate change

The infamous communist hippie organization (at least that is how the US right wingers will probably have to call it now) "World bank" has recently released a report on climate change and the threats of a world that is 4°C warmer than it should be because of anthropogenic emissions.

I wonder how long those "climate sceptics" can hold out if even the economic entities of this planet are openly talking about how much damage will be done. Obviously they are worried about economic losses, but the implications to everything else are the same.

Here is the report:

Well, I think after what Superstorm Sandy did to the east coast of the US, it seems more people are at least open to the idea that there is something up with the weather...

One can only HOPE that they start a PUBLIC OUTCRY for the effects that our "Energy Lifestyle" be treated, and fought against with the same POWER of AMERICAN INDUSTRY, WITHOUT the desire for insane profit that enabled us, in the throws of a Depression to out mass produce rest of the world, when it came to the making the weapons of war, that we did in the forties. GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE is a greater ENEMY than the Axis Powers EVER were in the Second World War, and the American population needs to be educated about this, generating the SAME will to defeat the ENEMY that existed in this Country during that war. If this can be DONE, then we CAN whip this enemy by 2020.

There will always be "climate skeptics", at least as long as the US is around.
