Abstract Until recently, lobbied by the multinationals and led by the USA, especially by the Bush administration, the vulnerabilities of climate change have either been ignored or paid lip service to. This is because those who pollute are the rich and stand to suffer profit losses, reduction of standard of living (reduction of a superfluous lifestyle, that is) if climate change initiatives are put in place and thus resist change and indeed, get away with it. At the other end of the spectrum are the sufferers who are poor and thus voiceless with little or no power to effect change.
