The 2017 report by International Panel on Climate Change stated that global warming must be limited to 1.5 °C to avoid disastrous consequences, and that "Global net human-caused emissions of carbon dioxide would need to fall by about 45 percent from 2010 levels by 2030, reaching 'net zero' around 2050." In lesss than three years (1942-45), America created not one, but two massive industrial complexes - one to enrich uranium and the second to create and refine plutonium. The Manhattan Project stands as an example of how a determined nation can quickly build massive new technologies in a short period of time. How does the Manhattan Project inform us on how to mitigate global warming?
