  报告摘要:
  目前,全球变暖被认为是引起多种威胁人类生存问题的气候背景,人们把在此背景下出现的很多具体问题都归因与这个大的环境背景,而理所当然的无所作为。每年有数十亿美元的费用花在所谓的全球变暖问题上,由于没有准确认识和理解相关的问题,社会管理者虽然投入大量的社会资源却没能很好的解决问题。工业界也在利用情感因素为股东谋利,而科学家们正在进行的大型的数值模拟也还存在着很大的不确定性。
现在是时候评估和关注我们面临的真正威胁了。报告将从解释间冰期为什么是10万年开始说起,告诉大家一个从没引起注意的新结果。这种理解为简单量化温室气体的影响和综合解决所谓的全球变暖威胁打开了思路。报告将以西澳大利亚为例,说明世界如何在几乎一夜之间实现碳中和,实现经济繁荣并保护其生物多样性。
  在报告人看来,唯一的问题是,我们是否有勇气改弦更张,寻找科学合理的途径真正的解决问题,而不是盲目地跟从。
