This accounting firm confirms what we've been saying for a while. We don't have to choose between the the environment and the economy. In fact, we can't afford NOT to stop climate change. [...] We're 20 years away from catastrophe, says PricewaterhouseCoopers. [...] Overall, PricewaterhouseCoopers paints a bleak picture of a world that's rapidly running out of time; the required effort to curb global emissions will continue to grow each year. "The timeline is also unforgiving. [...] The pressure will be on the world's governments to come up with a solution to this enormous challenge at the much-anticipated climate talks in Paris next year. [ Capitalism/Corporations is playing a Game of Chicken. + Naomi Klein - This Changes Everything. ]
