Abstract

In order for global climate pacts to be effective, they must address the issue of greenhouse gas emissions and not let that exceed the biosphere s ability to assimilate them. Political negotiations will also fail if they ignore the biosphere s role in regulation the Earth s climate. Nations cannot soley rely on _hail mary geo-engineering schemes to fight climate change; they also must make an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
