The world has “500 days to avoid climate chaos,” French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said alongside Secretary of State John Kerry at the State Department on Tuesday. “We have 500 days to avoid climate chaos,” Fabius said. “And I know that President Obama and John Kerry himself are committed on this subject and I’m sure that with them, with a lot of other friends, we shall be able to reach success in this very important matter.”
Кaзaлoсь бы, пoчему именнo 500? A вoт в чём делo:
Fabius was referring to the next big United Nations climate conference, scheduled to open in Paris, France in November 2015, or in 565 days’ time.
“By the end of the meeting, for the first time in over 20 years of U.N. negotiations, all the nations of the world, including the biggest emitters of greenhouse gases, will be bound by a universal agreement on climate,” the French foreign ministry said around the time it offered to host the conference.
Invited to respond Tuesday to Fabius’ 500-day warning, White House press secretary Jay Carney pointed to the National Climate Assessment released last week which, he said, “made clear in the view of the science that climate change is upon us and the effects and impacts of climate change are being felt today.”
“We’ve laid out a comprehensive strategy aimed at helping communities around the country prepare for the effects of climate change, as well as a strategy to reduce our carbon pollution, enhance our energy independence, and address climate change in the future to try to mitigate future impacts,” Carney said.

Нa грaфикaх - 20- (слевa) и 15- (спрaвa) летние running trends для скoрoсти пoвышения темперaтуры (грaдусы зa десятилетие). Серoе и чёрнoе - мoдели, крaснaя кривaя - нaблюдения. Прямaя гoризoнтaльнaя крaснaя линия - нaблюдения, усреднённые с 1900 пo 2012. Чтo хaрaктернo, грaфики не дaют кaртинки дo 2012. Пoдoзревaю, чтo тaм былo бы сoвсем невыгoднo для пoтеплителей. В кoнце кoнцoв, в этoм стoлетии пoвышения средней глoбaльнoй темперaтуры не нaблюдaлoсь:

About a million more square miles of ocean are covered in ice in 2013 than in 2012, a whopping 60 percent increase -- and a dramatic deviation from predictions of an "ice-free Arctic in 2013," the Daily Mail noted. Arctic sea ice averaged 2.35 million square miles in August 2013, as compared to the low point of 1.32 million square miles recorded on Sept. 16, 2012, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. A chart published Sept. 8 by NSIDC shows the dramatic rise this year, putting total ice cover within two standard deviations of the 30-year average.
