The rate at which our carbon-industrial complex is consuming and destroying natural resources and increasing global CO2e emissions is threatening our future.
Under business-as-usual, rising CO2e emissions from energy, industry, and land use will lead to catastrophic climate change with negative consequences for all of humankind. Climate change threatens to disrupt agriculture, intensify storms, incur droughts, and raise sea levels, among other effects. Large-scale environmental change will result in loss of wealth and life. A number of early effects, including saltwater intrusion due to sea level rise and shifts in snowmelt patterns, are already being felt.

Well, that page has gone. Though of course it lives on at archive.org
In its place is this page:
http://www.carbonwarroom.com/what-we-do/the-situation which holds a short video which says almost nothing at all.
Yet ‘Carbon War Room’ people are on paid secondment at DECC, the UK’s department of Energy and Climate Change.
What do they do there?
How much do we pay for it?
Looks to me like the ‘Generating Climate Wealth’ scam consists of taxpayers money dropping into Tricky Dicky’s pals pockets.
Time to make some more freedom of information requests I think.
