How quickly can we realistically expect to cut carbon emissions?

    Not very. It’s theoretically possible to do it exceedingly quickly, but the result would basically be economic suicide. From a realist standpoint, assuming the best conditions occur and countries are able to come to reasonable agreements, the earliest we’re likely to see any real progress is probably around 2030 when China and India believe their economic growth will have completed its peak. This, of course, assumes that no drastic technological changes occur that make everything easier, which I suppose is always a possibility- heck, 20 years ago there wasn’t really an internet.
