In 40 years, will we live in a world were every person will consume only 1 ton CO2 per year?
In already about 40 years from now on the world will look different. It will look different but good, or it will look different but ugly and dangerous. There is no alternativ path to these two. It is sure, that we are a genration that will experience a change comparable to the neolithic and the industrial revolution in terms of sheer dimension. If we don't manage to keep global warming at maybe 2 degrees (compared to pre industrial levels) our environment will change and our environment will change our societies and lifes dramatically. There is no question about that. If we don't like that idea of living in such a world, we have to change basically everything our lives are based on, everything that seemed to be just given for the last 200 years. We are living in an exciting time and an important one, too.
