Right now, the majority of educated Canadians seem to believe that one or both of the following is impossible:
- For the world as a whole to reach carbon neutrality – the state where net greenhouse gas emissions are zero – before 2100
- For the global economy to be restructured to run on forms of energy that are zero-carbon and renewable
My question to readers is: what would make the majority of people in Canada and around the world accept those two situations as at least possible? That is a necessary prerequisite to them being seen as desirable and, ultimately, necessary.
