Global Catastrophe Follows If Next Climate Summit Fails.

The next round of climate talks are due to take place in Cancun, after the failiure of the Copenhagen talks, as scientists predict the world will warm by a potentially dangerous 3.5 degrees by the end of the century, 1.5 degrees over the 'safe' limit.

"A month ago, in its annual State of the Climate report, published in conjunction with the UK Met Office's Hadley Centre, America's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) listed 10 separate indicators of a warming planet, seven of them rising – ranging from air temperature over land and humidity to sea level – and three of them declining: Arctic sea-ice, glaciers, and spring snow cover. "The scientific evidence that our world is warming is unmistakable," NOAA said.

Carbon sequestration needs to be addressed along multiple fronts at once, but I think the biggest hinderance to any forward progress is simple public opinion. Sadly, there won't be a change in denial until those who do so find themselves wearing Hawaiian shirts in the arctic.
