1. Climate Solutions2: Low-Carbon Re-Industrialization. A Report to WWF International based on the Climate Industry Sector Technology Allocation (CRISTAL) Model (Executive Summary). This report models the ability of low-carbon industries to grow and transform within a market economy. It finds that runaway climate change is almost inevitable without specific action to implement low-carbon re-industrialisation over the next five years. The point of no return is estimated to be 2014.

3. Unfortunately, at least according to a recent Pew Survey,  “There has been a sharp decline over the past year in the percentage of Americans who say there is solid evidence that global temperatures are rising. And fewer also see global warming as a very serious problem – 35% say that today, down from 44% in April 2008.”
