Jonathan Moreno and Andrew Light Speak About Biotechnology and Global Warming at the National Press Club
Date:11/9/2009

together countries around the globe to consider ways to curb CO2. Light argued that success at the meeting would be an agreement on the architecture--one that will bring developed and undeveloped countries together to work on the issue in a way that ethically accounts for the differing needs and responsibilities of all parties. He went on to call on the United States to take steps to curb CO2 by reducing deforestation, developing renewable energy sources, increasing energy efficiency, and cutting carbon emissions--steps which Light projected would save the United States a net of 14 billion dollars.
