Apocalypse now

Sir Nicholas Stern was commissioned by British Chancellor Gordon Brown to write a landmark report on climate change, amid growing fears about the human and economic cost of global warming. Stern, an internationally regarded economist, spent more than a year examining the complex problem. After a week of rumours and leaks, on October 30 he formally launched his 579-page report. Though dry in its delivery, it had a simple and apocalyptic message: climate change is fundamentally altering the planet; the risks of inaction are high; and time is running out. This is a summary of the key findings.
