Pale Blue Dot Energy has signed the Trillion Tonne Communiqué

Pale Blue Dot Energy has signed the Trillion Tonne Communiqué to support the global call from business for a policy response to the explicit scientific warnings of the risks posed by the continuing rise in atmospheric greenhouse gases.  If atmospheric emissions exceed more than a trillion tonnes of carbon from CO2 then the global average temperature is likely to exceed 2°C.
