IPCC: We CAN Cut Carbon Greatly, Fast

IPCC: We CAN Cut Carbon Greatly, Fast – If We Accept the Need to Do So says their report, writes Gerard Wynn at Responding To Climate Change. From individuals to societies, people tend to think more about the certainty of surviving today (can I pay the rent?), rather than the uncertainties of longterm survival, making it difficult to focus action on climate change. People have to understand that investing in carbon emission cuts means big savings in the future if we don’t delay.
