Summary of This Moment on Earth (John Kerry & Teresa Heinz Kerry )

Introduction

Global climate change is the great challenge of our time. Over the past 150 years, industrial progress has improved the lives of human beings dramatically, but the byproducts of development have led to unintended consequences. In particular, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, a byproduct of burning fossil fuels, are the biggest factor fueling global warming. Unless we take dramatic steps to change our energy habits, we are likely to face inclement weather patterns and an ecological backlash that will diminish the living standards of future generations.
