Meanwhile, a group of 15,000 scientists have come together to issue a dire ?second notice? to humanity, 25 years after a group of scientists issued the ?first notice? warning the world about climate change. We speak with the co-author of this report, Kevin Anderson, one of the world?s leading climate scientists. Anderson is deputy director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and professor of energy and climate change at the University of Manchester in Britain. The report is entitled ?Can the Climate Afford Europe?s Gas Addiction??
