Applying Lessons from the Information Revolution to Build a Carbon-Constricted Economy

Addressing climate change and building a zero-carbon economy presents perhaps the greatest business opportunity of the 21st century. And it will require transformations of technology, policy and even management.


Situation

The rate at which our carbon-industrial complex is consuming and destroying natural resources and increasing global CO2e emissions is threatening our future .( Read more about the current situation)



Consequences
The consequences of unmitigated climate change include massive loss of wealth and potential loss of life. Sea level rise, flooding, drought, storm intensification, and reductions in crop productivity are several of the predictable consequences of climate change. (Read more about Consequences of inaction )

Objective

The Carbon War Room harnesses the power of entrepreneurs to implement market-driven solutions to climate change. The War Room aims to bring together successful entrepreneurs in collaboration with the most respected institutions, scientists, national security experts, and business leaders to implement the change required to avoid catastrophic climate change.(Read more about the Wealth-creating low-carbon solutions developed).

Strategy & Tactics

The Carbon War Room has identified 25 battles across 7 theaters that are material to winning the war against climate change. Each battle accounts for over 1 billion tons (or more than 2%) of global anthropogenic CO2e emissions annually. ( Read more on Strategies and tactics deployed by the Carbon War Room )

Finding a balance between military necessity and humanity. These include: • the rule of distinction requiring that a distinction be made between civilians and combatants and between civilian objects and military objectives; • the prohibition of indiscriminate attacks requiring that attacks must be directed at military objectives; • the rule of proportionality requiring that the effect of the attack on civilians and civilian objects not be out of proportion with the military advantage gained; • the rule on feasible precautions requiring that care be taken to spare civilians and civilian objects; • the rule on environmental protection prohibiting using means of warfare that cause damage to the environment; • and the rule on superfluous injury or unnecessary suffering.
