Economic vitality in a transition to sustainability


  • Goodwin, Neva


The good news is that many of the solutions to this extraordinary problem are within reach. Many of the solutions to global warming are not only feasible, they are economically and socially beneficial. While some claim that addressing global warming will have a negative impact on the economy, the most recent report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change ("IPCC") asserts that there is substantial economic potential for the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions over the coming decade. In fact, there is a growing global market to address global warming, and the United States must act now or risk being left behind.
