Current models of climate change assume a gradual process, but some geoscientists say Sudden Climate Change is the historical norm. While there is a vigorous debate in scientific circles over whether global warming matters, Tony Blair's chief scientist has launched a withering attack on President George Bush for failing to tackle climate change, which he says is more serious than terrorism.

The World Health Organisation recently said 150,000 people died due to global warming in 2000, and the death toll could double again in the next 30 years if current trends are not reversed.
