Article 41 authorizes the Security Council to impose nonmilitary sanctions such as completely or partially severing diplomatic and economic relations, transportation and communications links.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned Wednesday that sanctions will not stop Iran from enriching uranium after European foreign policy chief Javier Solana conceded that "endless hours" of talks with top Iranian negotiator Ali Larijani had made little progress and suggested the dispute could wind up at the U.N. soon.
The talks had been seen as a last-ditch attempt to avoid a full-blown confrontation between Iran and the Security Council after Tehran ignored an Aug. 31 deadline to suspend enrichment - a key step toward making nuclear weapons - or face punishment.
"The time of negotiations of course is not infinite, but we'll try to do the utmost," Solana said Thursday after talks in Rome with Italian Foreign Minister Massimo D'Alema. "I think that even if we fail now we should keep the doors open for dialogue with Iran."
Senior U.N. diplomats told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Iran's refusal to freeze uranium enrichment had sabotaged the talks, opening the way for the Security Council to start considering sanctions next week. The diplomats spoke on condition of anonymity because Solana has not formally declared the talks dead.
Exceptionally well constructed... realistic and in keeping with general scientific understanding. There is little I can really add to this, except to say there are other greenhouses gases such as Methane which are emitted in vast quantities from our mass farming of animals globally. I felt that this review would and should reach a wide audience because it was easy on the eye yet blinding in prediction.
There really is no other rating than E for this clever and honest piece of work.

Interesting read, unfortunately governments seem more concerned about power, war and telling everybody how to live their lives rather than global warming.
