A 5 point plan to tackle climate change

Most news stories about climate change make the situation feel hopeless and overwhelming. Here’s a scientist’s 5 point plan to get this under control and generate other social benefits at the same time. It makes it seem do-able.

...ecologist Johan Rockström, who directs the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research in Stockholm, thinks there might be a way to cut global emissions while eliminating poverty and hunger and keeping the world cool enough to sustain future generations.

  1. Cut greenhouse gases in half every decade starting in 2020
  2. Increase food chain efficiency by 1% per year
  3. Shift how we create wealth and prosperity
  4. Ensure the wealthiest 10% don’t get more than 40% of the pie
  5. Invest more in education, health and family planning
