Climate Change "can be tackled"

This the the BBC's headline today reporting from the latest IPCC junket in Bangkok (oh, the carbon footprint of it all).

Putting phrases in "quotes" has a significant new meaning these days - signifying that what is "said" isn't really meant to be taken as "totally" true. And this is basically what the IPPC, via the BBC, is telling us.

Note also the comment about renewable energy - Renewable energy generally has a positive impact on energy security, employment and air quality. Generally? What does "that" mean!

The message being received is basically a sound one - save energy and we can all benefit - clothed in the guile of a terrible outcome if we don't. Otherwise known as the politics of climate change.
