Climate Change - Building a Green Economy -

Climate Change - Building a Green Economy -

Highly informative and condenses the necessary economics background into terms even I can understand. The politics of implementing even cap-and-trade do tend to induce despair (as with nearly everything else that strikes me as sane, rational, and in everyone's long-term interest).

However, I'm afraid that Jared Diamond's Collapse will eventually be our story as well: A boom-and-bust fable of industrialization, with of staggeringly colossal accumulations of wealth and power on a global scale, it's concomitant disparities of poverty and the most wretched eking out existences on toxic waste-dumps, and a fall brought on by our collective greed, short-sightedness, and general stupidity
