We can release up to 565 more gigatons of carbon dioxide and stay below 2°C of warming. Fossil fuel corporations now have 2,795 gigatons in their reserves, five times the safe amount. And they're planning to produce it all. -- Bill McKibben

Climate Change

Here's why climate change must be our primary concern:
  1. It affects everybody, not just some group that various people might have more or less concern for.
  2. To make a successful impact on climate change, we must address all the other problems good people are working on.
Let me expand on the second point. In order to prevent the disaster of climate change we must: That's right. Every serious problem inhibits fixing climate change. So, all the things that interest various members of most any group are part of this. We can work on those things separately or together and support each other in the context of reversing climate change.

I say two things to those who think it's impossible:

  1. If we don't fix climate change, why bother with the rest?
  2. When the US entered World War II, it took a very short time to completely reorganize our activities. Men left the work force to go to war but we still increased productivity and in a year were making thousands of jeeps, tanks, planes, boots, coats, portable bridges, gas masks, radiotelephones, guns, and bombs. Yes, this is a different goal, but those could be windmills, trains, solar panels, transmission towers, bicycles, and electric cars.
Tell me what you are up to and what suggestions you have so we can work together.
