If Cutting Carbon Emissions Isn't Working, What's Next?:

What if it is too late to save the climate by cutting greenhouse gas emissions? What if the amount of carbon dioxide already added to the atmosphere by human activity is so great that it is going to produce big temperature changes no matter what, with big shifts in rainfall and in ocean chemistry? Amazon Options remain, according to a new book, “Suck It Up,” by Marc Gunther , a journalist, blogger and speaker who specializes in energy and climate issues. If it is too late for zero-carbon electricity generation like wind, solar and nuclear to save us, then we should be exploring radical next steps, he writes.
