"Global warming pollution in overdrive."

“The rate of carbon-dioxide emissions from global industry has accelerated in recent years, outstripping even the highest earlier projections,” a new National Academy of Sciences report shows. From 2000 to 2004, “about 7.9 billion tons of carbon dioxide were emitted by industry world-wide,” millions more than the IPCC had projected “under its most extreme scenario.” More from McClatchy.

UPDATE: More from Kid Oakland.
