Making cruel choices … or is it tough love?

CarrZee: climate policy can promote equality and boost economic growth. Will cruel America choose this route?

I use the word allow — but the US didn’t have much choice in reality because it has contributed most ghg to the climate crisis.

UN climate talks require unanimous decision making.
