Sleep further, oh America...
the rest of the world will show you, how the green way is going.
Smarter, saver, cheaper, that's the green way.
Just run further for oil and pollution of "Gods own country"! The surviving rest will be dominated by smarter nations.
Japan thought they were clever with nuclear power until recently. Now they face with !$%*!$%*! the same problems like Ucraine with Chernobyl.
You didn't know about !$%*!$%*!$ God bless the ignorant!
Global Warming is real! Why just 10,000 years ago we had glaciers all the way down to Chicago and Dallas Texas was ocean front. Then along come a bunch of people from Asia and next thing you know those glaciers are 5 big puddles and I have to drive 5 hours to Galveston for a swim.
A zero carbon footprint is achievable with a very high level of technological civilization. Space-based solar power is attractive because the science is known, the technology can work. There are major engineering challenges but these would not prevent a "President Kennedy" from credibly saying "in a decade we will have demonstrated the ability to produce the electrical power needed to advance global civilization" while reducing global warming.
