  •  Global spending on Climate Crisis (7+ / 0-)

    will dwarf spending on WWII. When we finally get serious and realize that we in a planetary emergency we will need to spend an incredible amount of money on development and deployment of technologies to stop CO2 generation and to sequester CO2. Unemployment will not be an issue. How will we find the money to do this? Well, where is the money? That's where we will have to go. Besides aggressive taxation on the wealthiest Americans, we will be issuing Climate Bonds. Are you worried about the magic bond trolls or the Planet being inhospitable? Other sources of capital will be defense dollars and health care dollars. The single largest user of energy in the world is the US Defense department. Since they are the largest single contributor to global warming, reducing their budget has a double good effect. Another $1T is available by reforming the Health Care industry, hint--Single Payer.
