"Avoiding this future warming will REQUIRE a large and rapid reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions."

With a human population of an estimated 7 billion on the planet already, and, inevitably, even more billions on the way, fulfilling this requirement has very little chance of happening.

I suggest not voting for anyone. It works for me.....

If you shut down the oil/energy industry you effectively shut down the economy and any chance of economic recovery and paying down the debt/deficit. So then what? The country goes belly up. We're stuck between a rock and a hard place. People are not going to give up buying and making stuff. The only solution is to kill off about 5-6 billion people who depend on carbon emission produced stuff to sustain their lives and a few billion farting (a greenhouse gas) animals as well. How about a super-virus? An asteroid the size of Nantuckett should do the mass extinction trick a la the dinosaurs. Sorry, the future is grim. Not even the great Obama can save us.
