U.N. report: Don't delay on climate change
The longer we wait to mitigate the detrimental levels of carbon dioxide thrown into the atmosphere, the harder it's going to be to work against rising temperatures, says a leaked draft report from the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, obtained by CNN.
"It's really about cars and coal," said Marilyn Brown, professor of public policy at Georgia Institute of Technology, who was one of the review editors of the report. "We need to reduce our reliance on coal power and find a way to transport ourselves and all of the goods we consume more economically, more efficiently."
