Because of the emissions fallacy, the avoidance of population and consumption reductions, and restricted efficiency gains, current efforts to resolve the GHG crisis achieve essentially nothing.
Although climate and ocean damage is caused by unsafe GHG concentrations, “climate action” is focused on emissions – the increases to these concentrations. This is illogical.
A simple scientific model is needed to depict the full environmental impacts of unsafe GHGs. To obscure the horrific truth, such a model is carefully avoided by conventional sources.
It is not enough to minimize humankind’s ongoing environmental damage – we must also repair our past damage through geoengineering methods.
Christopher Wright and Daniel Nyberg are business-oriented academics associated with the University of Sydney. Starting in 2008 they interviewed 70 employees at 25 Australian corporations to determine the corporate response to climate change.
