What devastation???

Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore has teamed up with Richard Branson. They have announced a $25 million prize for scientists who can come up with ways to tackle Greenhouse Effect to counter the global warming.
What's more interesting is this...
...this initiative comes just days after the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) said global warming is more than 90 percent likely to have been caused by humans. That panel also predicted that the problem would raise temperatures by 1.1 to 6.4 degrees Celsius by the end of this century. This could lead to sea levels rising by around 18 to 59 centimeters.
Do you know how high 59 centimeters is? Not even two feet. In 100 years.
Can you say scare tactic?
