Silvio Berlusconi, the Prime Minister of Italy is one of the richest men in Italy and owns real estate and insurance companies, banks and media.
His policies on CO2 emissions will certainly guarantee climate change this century and with it a massive reduction in human quality of life, the loss of habitats and natural ecosystems, and the extinction of many species, with icon species relegated to zoos.
Two centuries of man made carbon dioxide have accumulated in the atmosphere since the industrial revolution and the rate of emission is increasing.
We should be removing greenhouse gases not increasing them. But Berlusconi continues to burn massive amounts of coal, oil and gas.
Berlusconi and the other European leaders follow the opinion polls and ignore the science. Instead of forming a unified approach to stopping climate change they have each argued for their self interest and given too many concessions to industry.
We need action now - effective targets that do the job of reducing climate change. We need a 90% carbon free planet platform.
