It’s been a long week at Copenhagen, resulting in a non-binding resolution with parameters which Obama says “will not be by themselves sufficient to get to where we need to get by 2050.” 2050 sounds like a long way off: a baby born today would be 41 then. But if we don’t get emissions on track, fast, it’ll be today’s babies and kids who’ll have to do it twice as quickly in 2050.
