The John Kerry approach to climate change

John Kerry believes that we've already met some of the emission cutting goals thanks to the decline in the economy. Poor John. He let the cat out of the bag. Global warming apologists better known as global warming cost denialists would like to reduce everyone's footprint thinking that such as move backward would be cost-less. Here's another reality check for the John Kerrys and Edward Markeys of the world.
In a provocative new study, a University of Utah scientist argues that rising carbon dioxide emissions -- the major cause of global warming -- cannot be stabilized unless the world's economy collapses or society builds the equivalent of one new nuclear power plant each day.

"It looks unlikely that there will be any substantial near-term departure from recently observed acceleration in carbon dioxide emission rates," says the new paper by Tim Garrett, an associate professor of atmospheric sciences.
