1. Makes alot of good points.

It really seems like we will not be able to mitigate the coming climate change catastrophe unless we break the power of the fossil fuel industry.

Hard to believe we are actually still exploring for arctic oil, digging out tar sands, fracturing the deep underground for natural gas. It's all profit driven. Even though we know how it is affecting the climate, we just can't stop it because the corporations behind it are too powerful.

We should have factories cranking out solar panels 24 hours a day and be installing them everywhere. Why haven't we modernized our electric grid to account for this.
We need to be on a "war economy" full blast program of switching over to sustainable energy. Most of the problems are political. Not technical. We have to interrupt the power of the oil/gas/coal industry to stop burning fossil fuels and make the big switch now.
