CBD COP11: Current emissions on track to cause ecosystem collapse

CBD COP11 (09/10/12): Dr Paul Leadley, Université Paris-Sud tells Pavilion TV that should the world warm by 4°C, there could be systematic ecosystem collapse. Even the preferential warming of just 2°C will shift some species hundreds of kilometres as they look for more appropriate climates.

Current greenhouse gas emissions are estimated to have the world headed for 4-6°C.
