In your comment on my other article you noted that I did my homework, which I’ll take as a compliment (thank you!). What confuses me is this: If you believe that I did my homework, then why don’t you trust the conclusion I reached? I’ve researched a lot about this subject, and the balance of evidence is telling us that we must take substantial climate action sooner than later. The only swindle is the one coming from those who say we can continue using fossil fuels indefinitely and with impunity. That’s a dangerous fiction.
Also, we shouldn’t be relying on credit to address these challenges. We should use money that we already have by relying on a more progressive taxation regime to pay for it (in other words, raising taxes on the ultra-rich).
