Global warming: Adapting to a new reality

From the hysterical tree huggers at that dangerously radical publication, the International Herald Tribune.

The early warning signs of global warming are apparent: an increase in summer deaths due to heat waves in Europe; the northern migration of toxic algae and tropical fish to the Mediterranean; the spread of disease-carrying ticks into previously inhospitable parts of Sweden and the Czech Republic.

The 1990s was the warmest decade in history. The years 1998, 2002 and 2003 were the hottest ever. By 2080, according to the Hadley Center for Climate Prediction and Research, in Britain, every second summer will be as hot or hotter than the scorching summer of 2003, when Europe recorded 20,000 excess deaths.
