Abstract

This interdisciplinary article, written by an atmospheric scientist and an international lawyer, highlights that there is convincing scientific evidence that climate change is underway, contrasted with the increasing intensity of climate change denialism and the weakening of international policy on climate change. It argues that we must choose the path of truly sustainable development across the board, creating business, science, and policies partnerships. It provides background for the Sustainable Companies Project on the science of climate change and the international negotiations on climate change.
