for my next OLO piece, I want to offer my opinion about policy possibilities and limitations with regard to the state of the global environment in 2050.

Hence, I am interested in the opinions of OLO readers.

Well Chris let's hear what you think the position of China, India and the rest of Asia will be in 2050?
I never saw any solar panels or windmills in Vietnam who are planning another six large coal power plants. That's more than Australia has ever had. I also saw a dearth of electric appliances there. They are going to forgo what you enjoy are they? I am making fun of you Chris but you know that.
Good luck with the upcoming project!

Chris,

I am interested in adding my two bits. I am an independent environmental sociologist researching what scientists and scholars have to say. My particular area of specialisation is water.

I would hope that the AGW/CC denialists also join in because it will be an opportunity for them to learn something.

i look forward to all contributions.

I am optimistic that more will be done to address environmental concerns, not just greenhouse gas emissions, but I will write my piece from a political perspective of how the world is likely to be given the competitive nature of international relations.

whereas I may argue that human activity is linked to global warming, I am sure that those who disagree may still have some good ideas at how the world bests adapts to rising temperatures.

at the end of the day, that may be our best approach, albeit I hope we can temper the rise of green house gas emissions.

Chris,

You made mention elsewhere that you have a background in politics. Could you elucidate on that so that we can better understand where you are coming from?

I completed a PhD and First Class Honours in political science at Monash University.

However, I prefer to call it political studies as I have never thought the subject ever warranted science status if that makes sense.
