    Re: “Before you decide which strategy and option you will use, please do not forget that there may be still some time and hope left to avert climate catastrophe even though the process will be extremely costly, difficult, and painful.” What the hell? It’s doing nothing that is going to be costly, difficult, and painful. Doing something, taking action, getting on board, making this urgent transition to a safer, cleaner, healthier, more equitable and more peaceful age of zero-carbon, non-combustion renewable energy as rapidly as possible … this is the most exciting time ever to be a human being!

    “Costly, difficult, and painful.” C’mon. How decidedly unhelpful.
