The latest news about climate change is so alarming (the right wing would say alarmist) as to make many people want to plant their aching heads in the sand. Some scientists using advanced computer models now argue that if we want to stop the Earth from warming, the amount of carbon we should be emitting is ... none. None? As in, zero?

Yet attempts even to slow the rate of increase of carbon emissions have paralyzed world politics for more than a decade.
