Climate Forecast: Muting the Alarm

Even while it exaggerates the amount of warming, the IPCC is becoming more cautious about its effects.

The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will shortly publish the second part of its latest report, on the likely impact of climate change. Government representatives are meeting with scientists in Japan to sex up—sorry, rewrite—a summary of the scientists’ accounts of storms, droughts and diseases to come.

But the actual report, known as AR5-WGII, is less frightening than its predecessor seven years ago.

God wil ons alle sondes vergewe,
En is besonder gul met vergiffenis.

Hy het begrip
Vir ons sondige natuur.

Het Hy dan nie self die Maagd
Ongevraagd bevrug?

En het Hy nie Sy Eniggeborene Seun
Aan die kruis laat sterf?

En het Ons hóm dan nie
Na Óns beeld geskape?

Trein

Op Reis

Ons is almal passassiers op die trein,
‘n Voortstuwende draak
Donderend die donker nag in,
Rook- en vuurspugend
Op ‘n vasgelegde spoor.

Jou kaartjie gekoop by geboorte,
Die bestemming voorlopig oop,
Tot latere kennis.
