On a sane planet, action would have been taken long before now to limit the risk. But, as Greenpeace International head Kumi Naidoo notes, fossil fuel industries have been working hard to corrupt the political process:

Why our governments don’t take action? Because they have been captured by the same interests of the energy industry.

As we noted in an alert last year, a Greenpeace study titled Who’s Holding Us Back? reported:

The corporations most responsible for contributing to climate change emissions and profiting from those activities are campaigning to increase their access to international negotiations and, at the same time, working to defeat progressive legislation on climate change and energy around the world.
