Elkboy Re:Gabe Newell is poisoning his own well (58 comments)

Maybe you can send Gabe a pamphlet of how to really develop for the PS3 and see how the problems are really features. It worked for Sony and Lair, right?

Elkboy (770849) writes "British economist Sir Nicholas Stern has authored a study saying that unmitigated global warming could reduce the world economy by 20%, in addition to creating 200 million refugees. In contrast, taking action now would only cost 1% of the global gross domestic product.

Stern was present at a recent climate talk between G8 nations, developing countries, business representatives and the World Bank. Despite some progress, there is little cause for optimism. The US is far from the only obstacle — Russia and India show little committment, while China has ambitious plans to reduce emissions and increase energy efficiency. Stern is still hopeful, however: "I'm optimistic... that we have the time and knowledge to act. But only if we act internationally, strongly and urgently."

Read the whole Stern study, presentation and press release: Stern Review on the economics of climate change."
