COP 13 Richard Betts Met Office Hadley Centre

Met Office Hadley centre Climate Change Institute UK sent Richard Betts to Bali in 2007 to COP 13 present to the world’s governments a report signed by over 900 climate scientists advising that the change to renewable energy away from fossil fuel must be very fast as the planet was experiencing climate conditions that were unprecedented and that could result in becoming unfit to sustain life.
Interesting in this interview is that it was still believed that it would take centuries for the ice to fully melt and that the final emissions cut could still be aimed at 2050.
This interview shows how well they predicted the results of or foolish use of fossil fuel, and how, except in terms of timing, which has massively accelerated ,they are so far right.
