This post is a really important contribution from my friend Martin Steiner (General manager of TBU Austria – see www.tbu-austria.com) and Ulrich Wiegel (Consulting Engineer, see www.icu-berlin.de). I found the article very interesting and speaking frankly very close to my own perceptions about the difficulties in addressing climate change issues. It also fits a lot with my previous post http://mavropoulos.blogspot.com/2011/10/urban-waste-management-and-climate.html.
Please enjoy it (unfortunately this is just a two pages abstract of a very important article that is too long to be published in my blog – but I tried to keep the fruitful thoughts and key-messages of the authors).
