Re "U.N.panel endorses global emissions ceiling" (Page A6, Sept. 28): The world's top scientists have concluded with 95 percent certainty that humans are causing global warming and climate change.
Even more importantly, they endorse action by humanity to establish a limit on carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas pollution.
I believe that, as individuals, we can have an impact on the fight to leave a stable climate for our children. Not by spending our efforts reducing our own carbon footprints, but by creating the political will to enable all of us to reduce our carbon footprint. I favor an economy-wide solution that harnesses the market to transition us away from carbon-based fuels.
A revenue-neutral carbon tax with a 100 percent citizen dividend is one option, favored by economists across the political spectrum. Explore the topic on the web. When I did, I was delighted to find an elegant climate solution.
