ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the effect of carbon emission on climate change. He stresses that what people need from climate modelers is an accurate 50-year projection of global politics surrounding global warming. He also relates that the carbon curtain has created a division between stagnation and growth, while the well developed countries do not focus more on renewable source of energy. Moreover, the author believes the creation of contingency planning to ease the problem.
