19. Which means what?

All the areas you talked about putting solar panels will not happen without the support of the locals.

Itís just talk.

I agree we donít have hundreds of years. Not if we want to maintain society as we know it.

But there is time to do it right. And the only feasible alternative to fossil fuels is nuclear. It has huge risks. But is the only viable option we have. But not as big a risk as continuing to use fossil fuels. I was anti-nuke my whole life. But canít see a visible alternative in a Democratic society. People will not vote for a reduction in lifestyle. By the time they might it will be too late.

Your smart. Do the research on how many acres of solar panels we will need. I just canít see that happening. Wish I could.

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer. But I just donít see a achievable alternative.
