Science has now largely warned that the game is almost, but not yet completely, lost, because the world is running towards scenarios of rising global temperatures between 3° and 5 °C and opens perspectives such as to put at risk the very human civilization; it is what Hans Schellnhuber[i] said, during the International Forum
