Survival Is Not Mandatory

To prevent dangerous global warming, we need to get our CO₂ emissions down to 1 tonne (1.10 tons) per person per year. The average North American emits 20 tonnes (22.05 tons) to 30 tonnes (33.07 tons) a year and stubbornly refuses to cut back by even 1%. As W. Edwards Deming put it, You do not have to change: survival is not mandatory.
