Climate Change Report: a wake-up call to action

by Antonio Pasolini on June 17, 2009

climate change reportThe whole world is taking about the Climate Change Report released by the Obama administration via its U.S. Global Change Research Program. The gist of the report is that a reduction in carbon emissions is crucial to mitigate the impact that global warming will have on life as we know it. And it says that sooner is a lot better than later. In fact, we don’t any time to waste.

This is no novelty for the green contingent but hopefully the release of the report will be the last nail in the coffin of climate change deniers and procrastinators who insist in remaining oblivious to scientific facts, almost to a suicidal point. The Bush administration played a major role in cultivating a culture of denial and hadn’t even published a climate change report since 2000, when federal law requires a document every four years.

Renewable energy plays a major role in curbing global warming – a switch-over to clean sources of energy is fundamental and it is possible, even if at present there are several hurdles to be resolved, mainly in the way of transmission and a more efficient grid system. But act we must, not simply out of charity but mainly because we have created the situation we find ourselves in and it’s our duty to work on the solutions and contribute to their implementation.
