    Passage 8: What are businesses doing about global warming? The issue of climate change has been discussed in scientific and business circles for over two decades. However, only in recent years has there been agreement that it is crucial something be done to reduce the carbon emissions that cause global warming, and that businesses – as well as governments and individual citizens – must act. The main problem is the rising level of carbon dioxide, which has been shown to warm the earth’s atmosphere, and which is still being produced in damaging quantities by power plants and motor vehicles. A few forward-thinking companies are investing in renewable energy, reducing their use of oil and coal, recycling more, and consuming less in order to reduce their "carbon footprint" (their total amount of carbon emissions). Although companies like these are preparing to live in a reduced-carbon world, most businesses have been slow in reducing their negative impact on the environment. They might be encouraged to finally start changing their environmental policies through a combination of legal, political, and business pressures. Laws on carbon emissions are likely to be affected by changes in governmentpolicy. In addition, the effects of new weather patterns involving high winds,hurricanes, fires, and floods are making insurance companies look seriously atclimate change as more and more money is continually being paid out for thedamage caused by these events. Companies are being forced by their insurers tothink of such environmental damage as a significant business risk.36. The main idea of the article is that _______.
