"That is the thing that first opened my eyes to the change. When I learned the astonishing fact that more than half of the carbon we have emitted into the atmosphere from burning fossil fuels was emitted in the past 25 years, that really shocked me. This means we have burned more fossil fuels since the UN established the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) than in all of the centuries before – so we have done more damage knowingly than we ever managed in ignorance. That is a horrifying fact. It also means we are engineering our own devastation practically in real time. How much will depend on how we act, how we behave, how we respond."

Genocidal Species Extinction.
Good job!
This is nothing compared to the election of a Republican or Democrat President & elected officials any where in 2020.
America will be destroyed before these dumb asses become extinct.

One can only gain so much horsepower, kilowatts, and BTU's from renewable energy. BTU's per hour is critical to keeping a lot of the northern European countries warm during the winter. Solar is not going to help that much in the Nordic countries. Hence, there needs to be more improvement in renewable energy.

The only other way is to influence lifestyle choices and force people to change the way and where they live. Encourage massive movement to urban areas to enable less reliance on individual ownership of gas-burning automobiles.

The above is what probably on the mind of a lot of the global environmentalists.
