Thank you, Bret. I won't bother repeat what I posted in response to LDJ, but I have a couple of other comments.
First, I like to think we can separate science from politics. You can disagree with the solutions put forth by politicians and still agree that there is a problem to be solved.
Second, you ask if I have a "workable" solution. I do not. But I do believe it's in our best long-term interest to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. That's for many reasons, not just global warming.
