Pachuari, head of the UN’s Panel On Climate Change, told MP’s that the world has until 2015 to put a brake on carbon dioxide emissions, after that things will get worse quickly, he said.
In his speech Al Gore said that the best way to reduce CO2 emissions is by raising the taxes on carbon dioxide, while lowering income taxes at the same time. He also accused the USA of blocking the climate talks in Bali, but added that a breakthrough could still be possible.
