The ‘global’ problem of climate change is endlessly discussed, but rarely looked at cold. The crux of the matter is that all of us, everywhere, share this monumental problem. To prosper we need energy security; but if we persist in using fossil fuels with current technologies, our prosperity will founder. The roadmap drawn up at the Bali climate change convention will show what we need to do to hammer out the post-Kyoto regime. But to get through the ferocious complexity of the process, we will need a change of mind-set. Moving away from a focus on who is to blame and ~who should act first, we must gain a new political maturity.
