It is time to discuss how this principle can be applied to the fossil fuel business.
As the April 26 issue of the prestigious journal Science explains, we have in effect a CO2 budget. We can safely emit just so much CO2 and no more, or face collapse as a society and a living planet.
Energy enterprises failing to help meet the CO2 budget must be retired.
Not acknowledging this necessity betrays mediocrity of spirit or mind or both.
