Re: The 10-50 Solution: A Decade-by-Decade Approach to Climate Change
- My comments follow, on the "Remarks" by Eileen Claussen, President, Pew
Center on Global Climate Change, EnvironDesign8 Conference, April 22,
2004 in Minneapolis.
I was disappointed in the absence of discussion on the urgency to begin
CONSERVATION of fuel NOW. People need to be encouraged to make choices
now to start reducing fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions NOW.
Decisions to cut travel (business and personal vacations) should be made
NOW. Government travel should be cut NOW.
Decision on where people choose to live are being made now. Choices on
where to live should be made NOW with an understanding about fuel
emissions adding to rapid global warming, pollution and health effects,
and sharp increases in prices due to limited fuel availability in the
Government agencies are being irresponsible in NOT informing the public
NOW on the severe damages from the excessive use of fuel, and on the
declining global fuel supplies.
Government agencies are being irresponsible in NOT alerting the public
NOW to make preparations for heat-humidity episodes (like Europe -
August, 2003 or worse) that may include energy blackouts and no air
conditioning during peak heat-humidity period.
The complete remarks by Eileen Claussen were posted earlier today on
fuelcell-energy, and forwarded to ClimateArchive.
