Almost half of humanity could lose clean water access due to climate change, according to a British report to be released tomorrow ahead of an international climate change conference in Mexico. "The main message is that the closer we get to a four-degree rise, the harder it will be to deal with the consequences," Dr. Mark New, a climate expert at Oxford University, told The Observer. The report will assume that global temperatures will rise 2 degree Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit)  this century even if nations agree to curb carbon emissions this year. Climate change scientists believe that a mass global movement to "decarbonize" human activity in order to stay below this temperature is virtually impossible, especially after the UN climate talks in Copenhagen failed last December. Still, nearly 200 countries will take part in the 12-day conference in the Mexican resort of Cancun. Instead of grappling for an overarching treaty, negotiators are being asked to notch up progress on half a dozen issues to help revive faith in the UN climate arena. The European Union's chief negotiator, Artur Runge-Metzger, said there was "no guarantee" the talks under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) would follow this new, pragmatic, incremental path.
