1965, Pitkin's son, Walter Pitkin Jr, reflected on the impact of his father's work. By focusing popular and professional attention on ‘ the subjective, or inner life of the middle-aged and aging person’, he argued, Life Begins at Forty had encouraged readers to believe that life could be creative, happy and challenging after the onset of middle age, in the process launching ‘a whole industry’ of inspirational self-help literature for the middle-aged. 64 As his son suggested, Pitkin was by no means the only writer

Additionally, it is difficult to understand on the basis of the CA and DP models why ExxonMobil did not modify its reactive strategy in the four-year period from the US’s signing of the Kyoto Protocol until Bush Jr was elected president.

Four years later, in January 2001, the former Texas governor George W. Bush was elected president. In March 2001, Bush Jr declared that the Kyoto Protocol was unacceptable because it would harm the US economy and because it failed to hold developing countries to strict emission limits.
