The article focuses on reasons to be pessimistic about turning toward climate stability. There is a drop of 75-percent in the price of solar panels since 2008, and the U.S. added more solar capacity in the past 18 months than in the previous 30 years combined. China has set up seven pilot cap-and-trade areas that cover about 250 million people.
