Reference: Action needed to avoid the abyss, Bangkok Post, September 6, 2009

Ban Ki Moon has described the effect of carbon dioxide emissions on climate as "our foot is stuck on the accelerator and we are heading towards an abyss". If "abyss" is another word for what has previously been described as the "tipping point", the Secretary General might wish to consult his own agency charged with the global warming agenda for these people have declared repeatedly between 2005 and 2007 that "it is already too late" for we are now "past the tipping point" and that we are doomed because mitigation of man-made climate change is no longer possible. Yet, here in 2009, we are somehow only approaching the abyss but not there yet. As it has in the past, the rising volume of fear rhetoric signals that we are approaching not an abyss, but a meeting on climate change in which they intend to extort from us the kind of agreement they want by making sure that we are sufficiently scared
