In Four Dimensions, We're the Fourth World.

Leave it to a Yale man to determine that the most just solution to climate change is to increase consumption:
"A third alternative would be a Rawlsian perspective that societies should maximize the economic well-being of the poorest generation. The ethical implication of this policy would be that current consumption should increase sharply to reflect the projected future improvements in productivity."
William Nordhaus, A Review on The Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change
