Can you guess what this all boils down to?

10 ways to accelerate progress against climate change

Climate scientists told us this week in a long-awaited United Nations report that limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius would require a gargantuan global effort — and that we have roughly 12 years to do it. But how?

One bright spot in the report is that we already have the tools we need.

Let’s make something clear, though: The emissions we need to focus on now are the ones at the industrial, corporate level, not at the individual level.

Voxinators Eliza Barcley and Umair Ifran even include this tweet which I’ve posted before

Can you see where they’re going? Here are their 10 ides

  1. Price carbon emissions (government)
  2. Subsidize clean energy, and end subsidies for dirty energy (government, and we don’t really subsidize fossil fuels)
  3. Close coal plants, and cut off the fossil fuel supply in other ways (government)
  4. Electrify everything and get more efficient (government)
  5. Invest in innovation (government. I actually approve of some govt investment, but, I’d rather see them enable, entice, and positively challenge the private sector to do this, rather than punish)
  6. End production and sales of cars, trucks, and buses that run on fossil fuels (government. And when will govt give up their own?)
  7. Require “zero deforestation” supply chains (government)
  8. Keep aging nuclear plants running (Good with this, and we should build next generation ones)
  9. Discourage meat and dairy consumption, encourage plant-based diets (government)
  10. Remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere (government, and there really are no existing methods)

Funny how this works, eh?

    I thought Germany tried that.

    Or was it Russia?

    Upgrade to more efficient appliances? In our kitchen remodel, we bought a new refrigerator, range and dishrinser, as well as a new hot water heater and a gas fireplace. But not everybody can afford to just go out and buy new stuff.

    My darling bride (of 39 years, 4 months and 23 days) wanted a gas range — we had an electric — and we chose a gas hot water heater to replace the electric one. We’re at the end of the service line, and when the sparktricity goes out here, it can stay out for a week. This way, we’ll still have some heat and hot water even without power.

    And the bottled gas association stroked us a check for $450 for replacing two electric appliances for ones which add CO2 to the atmosphere. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif
