Agreed, and there is no way 'the invisible hand' can do this. Nor will it be sufficient if it's not a united, global effort. Unfortunately IMO, the contradictions of capitalism still have a long way to go to play out organically, meaning that our timeline is probably not going to align in a way that gets us out of this.Yep, this any day of the week.
And with respect to nuclear energy, I've just got one word: earthquake.
This is an old clip, and it may not even play for you guys down there, but it's Rex Weyler's (co-founder of Greenpeace) take on nuclear energy in the wake of Fukushima. Essentially too expensive, too dangerous, and not really any cleaner.
We HAVE to recalibrate our economy to clean energy, as you say TMB. There is no other way we're going to survive. And it needs to be done, like, yesterday.
