Description

The Sierra Magazine looks at how "the world's nations squabble over a complex fix too timid to solve" the global warming problem, and concludes that heating the globe can be stopped "by calling an end to the Carbon Age." The story reports on the financial forecasts pertaining to global warming, and warns that "unchecked climate change could bankrupt the global economy by 2065." The author describes the steps that different countries have taken initiate a global energy transition, and to criticizes the unwillingness of the United States to "lead the world in addressing climate change." The reporter finds that "George w. Bush and Dick Cheney, oilmen both, are more inclined to protect the petroleum industry's short-term profitability than to promote its inevitable transformation."
