ABSTRACT
The article presents a pessimistic assessment of the manner the global warming issue is being addressed characterized by discord between scientific approach and government policy-making and disagreements among world leaders. It points to an inadequate understanding of the real dangers associated with interference on the earth's climate system and raises questions on whether or not targets set for greenhouse gas emission cuts would really eliminate catastrophic consequences. The author sees a world of conflicting ideas and initiatives.
