Global Warming

While the Bush administration continues to drag its feet on global warming by pledging to continue studying the phenomenon, the former co-chairman of climate science for the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has labelled it a "weapon of mass destruction."

In a related and ironic development, British researchers have found that Africa suffers the worst effects of global warming. Since the continent "is not as industrialised as most other continents it does not produce the pollutants, such as aerosol particles, that can help to shield against the sun," reports the Independent.
