13. Wikipedia has a wealth of information, the problem is that they're all costly.
The cheapest most effective way to mitigate climate change is to ... not have to deal with climate change. You do this by reducing CO2 emissions overnight (in a decade or so). Carbon taxes, export controls. Make CO2 as costly as possible now, because the future costs are going to be astronomical.

Build 1500 or so nuclear reactors. Or build a million wind turbines and two billion rooftop PV installations along with 100k 300MW solar plants. You have a decade to do it.

What is happening now is this generation is forcing my generation and my childrens' generation to deal with their problem. It's fucking bullshit.
