1980's Climate Change Crisis

It is the year 1979, and an EPA report mentioned the possibility of catastrophic temperature rises. Subsequent reports claimed that Earth's agricultural system would fail, global food and water shortages would force mass migration, the equator would become inhabitable, and the Antarctic ice sheet would melt. It was a decade where oil companies, politicians, and scientists alike agreed on the scope of the issue. Yet by 1989, despite record-high temperatures and conclusive scientific evidence, the United States had made only vague promises to limit carbon emissions. This United States climate crisis committee will be composed of politicians, scientists, oil and gas executives, and journalists. Will they solve humanity's greatest crisis, or live with Earth's devastating consequences?
