    THE WORLD HAS 15 YEARS TO DO THE RIGHT THINGS

    This Is It: The Next 15 Years Will Seal the Fate of Earth's Climate

    Andrew Freedman, Sept. 16, 2014 (Mashable)

    “…[I]f infrastructure investments during the next 15 years follow the current path of high carbon dioxide emissions, the world will sail well past the threshold of what world leaders consider to be dangerous amounts of global warming…But [Better Growth, Better Climate; The New Climate Economy Synthesis Report] argues that it's possible to foster economic growth and tackle climate change at the same time, in nations both rich and poor…[The comprehensive economic analysis] finds that investments of $90 trillion will be needed over the next 15 years in energy systems, cities and land use…That translates to about $6 trillion per year. Investments in energy efficiency and low-carbon infrastructure will add only about $270 billion a year to this price tag, the report says, and without them, a business as usual path may prove to be a disaster…How the global community directs these funds — either toward sprawling, vehicle-intensive cities, or toward denser, more efficient urban areas — could make or break the global climate, the report finds…The commission calculates that if its recommendations are fully implemented, they could potentially achieve 50% to 90% of the emissions reductions scientists say are needed by 2030 to avoid dangerous climate change…” click here for more
