Scientists at a London conference next week will warn of earthquakes, avalanches and volcanic eruptions as the atmosphere heats up and geology is altered. Even Britain could face being struck by tsunamis
Scientists are to outline dramatic evidence that global warming threatens the planet in a new and unexpected way – by triggering earthquakes, tsunamis, avalanches and volcanic eruptions.
Reports by international groups of researchers – to be presented at a London conference next week – will show that climate change, caused by rising outputs of carbon dioxide from vehicles, factories and power stations, will not only affect the atmosphere and the sea but will alter the geology of the Earth.

Well according to this alarmist report........Arctic climate change may be forcing faster warming on entire globe: report
we are ALL doomed, even ALASKA........maybe the graph was upside down when they produced the report.
Is accelerated warming happening in ALASKA?

THIS sad face, eerily etched into melting Arctic ice, has been dubbed Mother Nature in Tears by astonished environment experts.
The weeping image was "sculpted" by water pouring from a glacier retreating under the effects of global warming.
Lecturer Michael Nolan captured the photo at Norway's Austfonna ice-shelf. The glacier has been vanishing at the rate of 160ft a year for 12 years.
Michael, from Arizona, US, regularly visits the area. He said: "Every summer there is less ice.
I was struck by this image of a face - a saddened, motherly face, crying about our inability to reduce global warming."

LONDON (Reuters) - Humans may have to reset the Earth's natural thermostat and develop new technologies like reflecting sunlight back into space if climate talks fail, Britain's top science academy said on Tuesday. So-called geoengineering was not a quick fix but may be needed to head off planetary catastrophe and so deserved more research as an insurance policy, the Royal Society said in a report, "Geoengineering the climate."...........Such technologies were not an alternative to cutting emissions, however, the report stressed. Political efforts to curb greenhouse gases are in the spotlight three months before a U.N-led meeting meant to clinch a new climate treaty to replace the Kyoto Protocol. "Nothing should divert us from the priority of reducing global carbon dioxide emissions and ensuring that the December meeting in Copenhagen does lead to real progress," said Royal Society President Martin Rees.

An unprecedented coalition of scientists, companies, celebrities and organisations spanning the cultural and political spectrum will today (1st September) commit to slashing their carbon emissions as part of an ambitious campaign to tackle global warming. The 10:10 campaign, which will be launched at London's Tate Modern this afternoon, aims to bolster grassroots support for tough action against global warming ahead of the key global summit in Copenhagen in December. Those signing up for the campaign, which is supported by the Guardian, pledge to make efforts to reduce their carbon footprints by 10% during the year 2010.........The campaign is backed by public figures ranging from the climate change expert Lord Stern to Radio 1 DJ Sara Cox, chefs Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Delia Smith, screenwriter Richard Curtis, directors Richard Eyre and Mike Figgis, designers Nicole Farhi and Vivienne Westwood, TV presenter Kevin McCloud and actors including Samantha Morton, Jason Isaacs, Pete Postlethwaite, Colin Firth and Tamsin Greig.

Tell the Chamber of Commerce's member companies to act responsibly.
Despite mountains of evidence, the United States Chamber of Commerce is threatening to sue the Environmental Protection Agency over global warming’s scientific legitimacy. This effort to “put the science of climate change on trial” undermines the EPA’s ability to battle a worldwide threat.
With your help, this issue can finally be put to rest. Send a letter to the Chamber of Commerce’s member companies telling them that global warming is real. Let them know that responsible companies should take the issue seriously
