not enough yet...

The G-8 leaders have pledged to cut greenhouse gases by 50% by 2050 - yes, even de facto President George Bush.

It's true as environmental groups say that this is not going to be enough. It's true that the US hasn't backed off its other promise to stop growth in our greenhouse gas emissions by 2025.

But at least these people -even BUSH - are committing to cuts. So when the even deeper cuts are needed, people will at least be vaguely aware that this isn't just for fun and games, but is part of an effort to, among other things, save civilization...

We've already bought a whole bunch of climate change so we've got to focus on mitigation. But the best mitigation is to cut emissions to avoid even worse changes.
