Chris Hedges: Stand Still for the Apocalypse  A new report commissioned by the World Bank paints a picture of a world convulsed by rising temperatures. We're doomed if we do nothing about climate change, says Chris Hedges. The report calls on the leaders of the industrial world to immediately institute radical steps.

The 84-page document,“Turn Down the Heat: Why a 4°C Warmer World Must Be Avoided,” was written for the World Bank by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and Climate Analytics and published last week.
