From the article, "an "all-of-the-above strategy" is regarded by climate experts and renewable energy advocates as a coded refusal to ditch fossil fuels once and for all."
The thing is, like most addicts, we'll promise that tonight and wake up tomorrow unwittingly scrabbling for some oil. Everything around me is either brought, gotten, or made cheap by imperial control of the petro$. Good thing for my bike and the outdoors, although crap!, the tires are probably oil and Pruitt-types are poisoning the "outdoors" (funny the distinction).
Tomorrow is only 18,000 days too short, but we as a collective people have to definitively declare a national boycott on Oil for 98% of it's uses; Not legislatively, but more a way to bankrupt Oil companies. Remove their power and see the Tillersons of the world watch their legacies dry up in disgrace.
While we're at it, let's legalize drugs, neuter the CIA. Spread Community Credit Unions, kill Wall St. Spread Indigenous and natural remedies, suppress Pharmdrugs. More farms. It's all so easy!
These cronies are powerful and influential because most of us don't have the courage, or legal financial logisitcal will to assemble a different society wherein these evils aren't needed.
Is anyone else imagining a nation where the privileges of cars don't dictate the shape of the society? Could we achieve the same level of abundant wealth and health through a massive system of zeppelins, solar and wind cars, cable trolley systems, windmills, mag lev trains, agridestruction of illogichitecture, Condensed Ecolopolises, and webs of public "r"oads for innovative leg-powered crafts? But what about global trade and the pace of civilization?, presumably burning a hundred millions of barrels of oil a day and billions still live in poverty and warfare. Is it even working?
