Letter to all nations:
We (meaning the entire world) are in the mists of the greatest crisis humankind has ever faced! Though this may seem dire and to some desperate, I truly believe that until we all understand that this global climate crisis effects us all no one will work to alleviate the issues at hand.
Most of the world's scientists agree that in order for us to alleviate the situation there must be mitigation, remediation, and adaptation. We must lower our carbon output, engage in technology for solar radiation management and carbon dioxide removal, and use technology to appropriate adaptation to the changing climate ahead. The costs will be great to bare, the time and effort will also be high, and however, the fighting spirit would say it must be done!
Today I never hear of this crisis on the news headlines. It does not spew into our daily lives. I do hear how we have met at Copenhagen and other locations to suggest our CO2 emissions should be stabilized at 350ppm. America is working on that we hear, though not very strongly. China is concerned, the UK is concerned, and many nations are concerned. I do not hear how we have learned yet that we are all in this mess together! To try to find who is to blame, who started it, who is the worst polluter is nonsense! There is a time for blame and a time to punish but when the world is faced with what is the greatest crisis of all time, now is the time for real action! Not just words and conjecture, not just for talking! If all people could just understand that we are all connected, we are all one. We all breath the same air, we all drink the same water, we all walk the earth together! Therefore we must all work together. If the worlds' resources would pull them together we would have what we need to fix this. There would be enough, scientists, engineers, biologist, chemists, and other experts as well as money to work on this. Correct me if I am wrong, but do we not have the same goal?
It has been suggested that society may be able to avert dangerous and eventually catastrophic climate change by stabilizing the atmospheric CO2 concentration at 350 ppm.
Is this not our shared goal? Why not work together and pool resources together to achieve it?
