    for an exceedingly complex problem.   Public needs to know that a complete transition to sustainable energy is within the realm of possibility.  For those who prefer more details the information is available.   The climate change crisis is increasingly a problem of communication and that affects political will and action.

      The need for simplicity, but I think you shouldn't sacrifice too much accuracy in the process. I think the linked report reads way too much like overly optimistic corporate PR for a solar company rather than anything approaching reality.

      shrug no need for me to keep harping on it though, I appreciate the drive for renewables.
