Sorry for the late comment on this, and I've been too busy to read all the other replies, but, at the risk of repeating what others may have already said, I would now like to make a brief comment: 

Don't panic! This is an opinion piece by two authors, who are proposing that a significant bureaucracy is built and hard and complex decisions are agreed to! In short, it ain't gonna happen! No need to react, just do nothing and nothing will happen!
