Low Carbon Economy Transition Too Slow To Meet Global Climate Targets says a new analysis, reports Jonathan Grant at the UK Guardian. At the current rate, the world will have blown its carbon budget by 2034, exceeding the amount of fossil fuels it can burn to reasonably avoid more than a 4 degree F rise in global temperatures, considered by many experts to be the limit needed to prevent far more catastrophic future climate change. Take-home message: we need to start in earnest now, if we hope to not blow that budget then, folks!
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is in 2 years!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
