ABSTRACT
The author argues that human "systems blindness" has led to global warming. He says "sustainable thinking" is needed to address climate-change. He notes the tendencies of some companies to use the European Union carbon-trading programme for profit or to use offsets to allow for business-as-usual. He thinks a cap-and-trade system for carbon emission control is suspect because carbon-removal technologies need further development.
