The global climate is visibly changing because of human pollution of the atmosphere. According to eminent scientists and business people, its "devastating trends" are the greatest challenge ever to face humanity. This briefing describes the dangers presented by global warming, and explains the origins of the climate crisis. It shows how the global policy framework of "contraction and convergence" (C&C), developed by a small organization called the Global Commons Institute (GCI), has been developed to avert these trends. The C&C framework, which was pioneered and advocated by GCI at the United Nations in the 1990s, is based on the thesis of "equity and survival". It seeks to ensure future prosperity and choice by applying the global rationale of precaution, equity and efficiency in that order.
