Locked Into Climate Change November 18, 2011 : 4:44 PM

Time Magazine's Ecocentric Blog notes:

“Fatih Birol, the IEA's chief economist, put it this way: "As each year passes without clear signals to drive investment in clean energy, the lock-in of high-carbon infrastructure is making it harder and more expensive to meet our energy security and climate goals." There's a price to delaying action on climate and energy policy—which is exactly what we're doing. The longer we delay, the worse it will get—and the harder it will be to save ourselves.”
