"The Australian of the Year, scientist Tim Flannery, says a new report on climate change grossly underestimates the speed at which global warming is affecting the planet ...

"But Professor Tim Flannery says the report's findings are conservative and the real impact of global warming will be felt much sooner.

"'The actual trajectory we've seen in the arctic over the last two years if you follow that, that implies that the arctic ice cap will be gone in the next five to 15 years,' he said.

"'This is an ice cap that's been around for 3 million years.'"
