Have you heard about the research "Europe's Share of the Climate Challenge: Domestic Actions and International Obligations to Protect the Planet" from the Stockholm Environmental Institute? It shows how Europe can cut domestic emissions by 40% in 2020, and by 90% in 2050, compared to 1990 levels. That is excellent news. Hope the US are doing their share too. http://ecotope.org/blogs/post/2009/02/16/A-Fair-Way-to-Solve-Global-Warming.aspx#id_25634c66-c203-4d11-b3f2-859ffd438963 http://ecotope.org/blogs/post/2009/02/16/A-Fair-Way-to-Solve-Global-Warming.aspx#id_25634c66-c203-4d11-b3f2-859ffd438963 Mon, 01 Feb 2010 20:01:30 -0500 Steve Krenz http://ecotope.org/blogs/pingback.axd http://ecotope.org/blogs/post/2009/02/16/A-Fair-Way-to-Solve-Global-Warming.aspx#id_25634c66-c203-4d11-b3f2-859ffd438963 http://ecotope.org/blogs/post/2009/02/16/A-Fair-Way-to-Solve-Global-Warming.aspx#id_25634c66-c203-4d11-b3f2-859ffd438963#comment http://ecotope.org/blogs/syndication.axd?post=25634c66-c203-4d11-b3f2-859ffd438963 <a class="comment_auth" href="http://onlinephilosophydegrees.net/" alt="http://onlinephilosophydegrees.net/" title="http://onlinephilosophydegrees.net/">William@philosophy degree</a> on <a href="/blogs/post/2010/01/29/The-remotest-place-on-Earth.aspx#id_a0bb9f2c-a381-4dbd-8477-66b0c92a9065" alt="/blogs/post/2010/01/29/The-remotest-place-on-Earth.aspx#id_a0bb9f2c-a381-4dbd-8477-66b0c92a9065">The remotest place on Earth</a> A similar accessibility map was discussed on Slashdot (or boingboing) 2-3 years ago. Guess the place hasn't changed much. Some places in Africa look pretty inaccessible too.
