The ever-evolving dilemma of climate change has put an incredible strain on scientists and politicians to navigate ‘a way out of this.’ Europe and its leaders have largely been at the forefront of adapting new means to approach our finite resources – North America and the Far East, by contrast, are seemingly always looking for ways to avoid stringent new measures to cap . The reasons for this delay are partly technological, but mainly financial and constituency-related: don’t rock the boat, there’s an election approaching.
Let’s face it – it’s hard to be hopeful. With the current economic climate in Europe and America, politicians are fighting to stay alive in an increasingly skeptical landscape. And the public is just fighting with frustration. But if one takes the time to read the fine print (although that tends to be conflicting and contradictory, too) there are always rays of optimism lurking there – sometimes in the most unlikely places.
