In the global meetings among governments, IGO and NGO, a hidden premiseis that the process of climate change can be not only halted but reversed, ifand only if there could finally be coordination of a global warming set ofcounter-measures. Somehow, global warming would be stabilised at 2C, and all countrieswould reduce their GHC emissions slowly but consistently over the comingdecades. Given the costs of such measures in terms of economic development, itis said that a super fund put up by the rich countries would alleviate theburden on the poor or developing countries. This is a global myth, whichentirely bypasses the fundamental fact that the history of mankind is evolvingto a new stage, namely a society with an increasing average temperature and itsattending consequences for all systems, biological and social. It involvestravelling on a new road path that may end up in 4C, 6C or even more. It is ariskier one than before, because it is irreversible and probablities are notknown.
