“We predict a scenario in which people and nations are threatened by massive food and water shortages, devastating natural disasters and deadly disease outbreaks,” said John Podesta, President Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff and now president of the Centre for American Progress think tank.
Podesta called this outcome inevitable, even if the United States – the world’s biggest emitter of climate-warming carbon dioxide – enters immediately into an international system to cap and trade credits for the potent greenhouse gas.
Basically, it is already too late, but we’re still quibbling about carbon credits and whether the US joins the Kyoto protocol?
On behalf of my generation (who are the ones inheriting this god damn mess), to my future children: I’m sorry.
