  3. Ja - the future will be.

    Und egal, was sie uns nach Kopenhagen bringen wird, alle werden später recht haben wollen:

    1. Klimawandel findet nicht statt
    - die einen werden sagen: dank unserer Bemühungen ist das Klima stabil geblieben
    - die anderen werden sagen: wir haben schon immer gesagt, dass das bloß Panikmache war

    2. Klimawandel findet statt (worst case szenario – 4 Grad plus)
    - unsere Bemühungen fanden zu spät und nicht im erforderlichen Umfang statt
    - es war illusorisch zu glauben, man könnte der Lauf der Dinge (der Sonne) beeinflussen

    3. Klimawandel findet statt (best case szenario – 2 Grad plus)
    - ohne unserer Bemühungen wäre es schlimmer gekommen
    - wir haben schon immer gesagt, dass es nicht so wild sein würde

    4. ...
