9. You are correct in saying there is no way to economically fight global warming

 

However, even though you are correct, it MUST be done, otherwise our planet is in deep doodoo.

Point blank: We MUST ELIMINATE all oil, gas, and nuclear-based energy production by 2050. For NOW, we must IMMEDIATELY CURTAIL its usage at LEAST 50%. Of COURSE this is not cheap, as people will have to adapt to the new reality: energy that doesn't destroy the planet comes at a cost. However, we have enough wind, solar, and other renewable technology to shift our focus to producing those items.

There is a huge list of necessary processes, but they can't be done unless we eliminate the GOP from the fabric of our political society and our societal existence. But make no mistake: energy MUST be severely curtailed from its current usage in rich countries such as ours, and introduced properly into countries which lack such commodities.
