I wasn’t offended Steve! Sorry if I gave you that impression. Not at all.
I believe that moving to a cleaner , cooler industrial system is a good thing to do. Certainly, trying to bring everyone world -wide into the middle class overnight won’t work with fossil fuels. So , I think we need to move towards renewable energy infrastructure. But how to pay for it, how to do it, how to train the workers all need time to work out.
There are two ways of defeating the project IMO, 1. Outright denial and 2. Saying the whole process is hopeless and that we are all doomed. So why do it.
Cleaner and cooler is better. So, that is my 2 cents.
