A Must Read for Policy-Makers Everywhere

What is the possibility of achieving a 2-degree future now? What are the global impacts of continuing low-income industrialization in India and China. India's GDP per capita is presently 1/3 that of China, with a huge scope for very high growth rates. This has fundamental implications for mitigation and adaptation analysis and policy, globally and for all nations. Most likely, we will see a 4-degree future. What are the ramifications for human society? Professor Kevin Anderson, from the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University of Manchester claims we have the agency, and the technical agency, to avoid the worst excesses of climate change if we are prepared to make the necessary changes now--policies targeted to the 1% of people who produce the most GHG emissions.

That said, there is a large network of microcredit and microfinance agencies in the United States.
