A Hard Deadline: We Must Stop Building New Carbon Infrastructure by 2018

“In only three years there will be enough fossil fuel-burning stuff—cars, homes, factories, power plants, etc.—built to blow through our carbon budget for a 2 degrees Celsius temperature rise.”  From: theleap.thischangeseverything.org

GR:  This article explains that by 2018, just three years from now, we will have built enough ships, cars, houses, and machines to use enough fossil fuel to take the Earth to the 2-degree temperature increase everyone is talking about.  That means we have to stop building ships, cars, houses, and machines three years from now.  Read the article and see if you don’t agree that the reasoning is accurate.
