Jim Hansen has posted this slide show about the current state of global warming. It is brief, and well worth reviewing

He cites a number of scenarios, and in one uses the phrase “business as usual” (emphasis added).

The best ironies are unintentional. The human race is not thoroughly mobilized to deal with this threat. This is not becauses millions of people have taken to the streets around the globe to protest action on global warming. Rather, the interests of business, acting through its agents in governments, has stopped action in certain countries. Where progress has been made, notably in Europe, business is affirmatively part of the solution.
