    if the goal is to switch to a renewables-based economy, make oil and coal as quaint as horse-drawn carriages, greatly diminish the lobbying power of the fossil fuel economy, cut down air pollution, reduce mercury and lead poisoning, etc., then we have a winnable fight on our hands. And we will win that fight - perhaps not as quickly as we'd like, but I'm fairly confident that we'll win.

    If the goal is to keep global warming down to 2 degrees, well, sorry about that, planet.

      ain't the issue -- better stated, "well, sorry about that, humanity."
