Carbon emissions essentially uncontrollable

(From the "we're all gonna die, so smoke 'em if you got 'em" department.)

It's science!

So sayeth professor Garrett, Carbon=economy.  In order to stabilize (not even reduce) carbon emissions, we'd need to build about one nuclear plant per day (or equivalent non-carbon-emitting energy source).  Carbon-wise, conservation is a sucker's game because conservation = lower prices = more energy use = greater economic activity = more carbon output.
