The struggle against manmade climate change is one of the great challenges of our century. If we continue on the current course, we will put societies in all parts of the world into jeopardy " of falling food productivity, increased transmission of disease, heat waves, droughts, extreme weather events such as Hurricane Katrina, rising sea levels, and more. Yet the closer one looks at this issue, the more we become aware of our ability to head off these grave risks at modest cost to humanity. The problem is our inaction, including the stark lack of leadership from President Bush and others in Washington, rather than the absence of good choices. There are solutions, but only if we grasp them, individually and through government action.
