    a system for there to be a tipping point that comes from nature rebelling against us. Now if a big corporation or corporations see a problem that will cut a deep enough swath into their bottom line that could cause them to put their resources behind fixing the climate crisis. As usually is the case, money or a threat to the accumulation of money, will be the cause for action.

    I sing praises in the church of nonsense, but in my heart I'm still an atheist, demanding sense of all things.

        want to expedite some action on climate change I would hire a consulting firm that has done a ton of business with Fortune 500 companies and ask them to help produce a presentation on how climate change is a serious threat to business.

        it would screw things up, and exponentially more than has been the case already.

        Never entrust with those who created the problem the charge to solve it.  Certainly Our President has taught us, however unintentionally, that lesson sufficiently already.

      They should be jumping on this.  The research for solar/wind has basically been done, so they can just branch out with all their money.
