So I'd like to see a more aggressive approach taken, say a target of 15 to 20 years. That way I might at least see some significant progress before croaking.

As for zero tolerance for methane leaks -- until we get to 100% clean energy, the methane could be captured and used for fuel. If I can turn up something I wrote about 15 years ago on energy, I'll add it in a reply to this post. I wrote in response to a boneheaded mailing I received from my representative -- some hogwash about a non-existent energy crisis at the time.

I particularly like the third item in O'Malley's plan: "Call on Congress to enact a carbon cap that would charge companies for their carbon pollution, and return the revenue to lower and middle class families."

To me that won't be enough or fast enough to alleviate the income and wealth inequalities that are hurting middle and lower income families. I have a proposal that would deal with the issue more directly and faster. When I've tweaked something I've written, I'll post it for discussion. It won't be the be-all-and-end-all as a solution, but it might stimulate some creative thinking.
