Recession and The Environment I – Climate Change-Root Causes and Solutions

I propose to develop the hypothesis that lack of vigour to combate climate change, especially by world leading US administration, is one root cause, if not the main root cause for the current economic-financial recession. I base this on the stabilising wedge methodology proposed by Pacala & Socolow and specifically in the excellent interview given by Pacala to IOP – Environmental Research.

It has just been posted to my blog "Conversations-on-Innovations" -[LINK]

My proposed conclusion
But US did not sign Kyoto, and push it forward - as in the famous SALT treaties on nuclear arms control, of which I am no expert-, and this has sent all the wrong messages. It could plausibly be argued that this is the root cause of the current financial crash and recession-JA.

I urge you to read me, my original source and comment -naturally praise is preferable, abuse tolerated, but Above-All all information will be shared unless otherwise requested. Feel free - Tighter emissions rationing is on the agenda and economic resession will not be tollerated - work that one out.
