(Reuters) – A United Nations panel of experts met on Monday to review a draft report that raises the probability that climate change is man-made to 95 percent and warns of ever more extreme weather unless governments take strong action.

Scientists and officials from more than 110 governments began a four-day meeting in Stockholm to edit and approve the 31-page draft that also tries to explain a “hiatus” in the pace of global warming this century despite rising greenhouse gas emissions.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will go through the document line by line and present it on Friday as a main guide for governments, which have agreed to work out a United Nations deal by the end of 2015 to fight global warming.

“I expect the world will understand the simplicity and the gravity of the message that we provide,” Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the IPCC, said after the opening session.

Climate change “will transform our lives, our economies and indeed the way our planet will function in the future,” Achim Steiner, head of the U.N. Environment Programme, told delegates.

    Hi Claire
    Not sure if you have seen this. Russia urges UN climate report to include geoengineering. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2013/sep/19/russia-un-climate-report-geoengineering
    It was published on RT News.

    I hope that this is the beginning of the end. RTtv is perhaps one of the most progressive news media out there . I have regularly made comments on Breaking the Set, Truth Seeker, Max Keiser, and Tom Heartmann The Big Picture about geoengineering. There are plenty of openings with discussion on climate change, sustainable power, weather events, Monsanto, and political control. Now that geoengineering is reported on the news it is an OPEN SUBJECT. Please every one respond with encouragement.
