I’m personally willing to compromise and settle for a 99% renewables plan.

But unless sufficient global renewable energy capacity is created, above the present level corresponding to 18 trillion watts, most of humanity (of those who will survive ongoing dangerous climate change) will have to settle for less than what the privileged elites in the global North get — the best education, nutrition and health care.

It is definitely possible. The question, as you rightly point out, is whether the political will exists to pull ourselves out of the neoliberal dumpster we’ve been tossed into.

Just the facts: Writer. Gamer. Feminist. Educated in Astrophysics. Professional Gambler. Student of Language. Satanist. Anarchist.
