We need to leave the tarsands oil in the ground.
We need an increasing carbon tax.
We need to stop subsidizing carbon energy producers.
We need public money invested in post-carbon energy.
We need to do it now.
I say all this, as does this NASA physicist:
The science of the situation is clear — it’s time for the politics to follow…Every major national science academy in the world has reported that global warming is real, caused mostly by humans, and requires urgent action. The cost of acting goes far higher the longer we wait — we can’t wait any longer to avoid the worst and be judged immoral by coming generations.
