Getting to home plate
Tomorrow's climate is today's decision.
Where Climate Chaos' frontline's are:
|"how a scientific concept may correspond to ultimate reality."|
Key elements in this puzzle of paralysis by analysis.
Schmidt, human induced climate change is unequivocal
Archer, the prolonged impacts of carbon dioxide last for generations
Ocean acidification, isotope evidence,
Speed of glacial melt, the unpredictable and volatile weather patterns
Efficiency incentives in transportation, building, machinery & production
Closing the circle by cradle to grave production, packaging & reuse
HOV – lanes – success of failure in moving people?
Should public transportation be “free” based on a carbon footprint
Utility wealth transfer to both the vulnerable and implementing sectors
California utilities are not paid for every kilowatt used and sold to customers;
Instead the utilities, by law. are paid by what energy conservation they actively encourage.
How to reduce carbon emissions quickly and sufficienty enough to matter.
Amortizing carbon (making carbon dioxide a commercial investment) via
B) a carbon cap and trade system, –This has been criticized as unjust.
C) Earth/Air commons; privatizing the commons project
Or is such a scheme making money out of an international consequence of unregulated industrial pollution?

Current uneven playing field of subsidies to oil, coal, nuclear, and gas.
We are walking backwards into a trap of our own making.
