'Punish thy neighbor': Game theory shows the way to control climate change

'Punish thy neighbor': Game theory shows the way to control climate change
A week ago the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) delivered to massive media coverage an unsettling message – climate change is real, humans are the main cause of it, and unless we stop the warming of the planet, in 50 years life as we know will be no more. The problem now is that despite innumerous attempts, world consensus on how to do it has proved impossible to reach. But, with perfect timing, research now out in Nature Climate Change by a Portuguese team, well known for their studies on cooperation, claims to not only to have identified the root of the problem, but also to have a solution. Now, they just need to be listened to. http://phys.org/news/2013-10-thy-neighbor-game-theory-climate.html#nwlt
