As McKinsey, the Rocky Mountain Institute and others have shown, we can move towards an almost carbon-free energy system over the next 30 to 40 years at either zero net cost (McKinsey) or a $5 trillion dollar net present value savings to the economy

A great letter, but, I am sure it went right into the shredder. It is all about Profit! Clear the Path at any Cost, as long as we can make a Buck.

Not until the will of the people outweight the profits, I'm afraid Russell is most likely correct.

True, but I'll just keep pushing. We need to talk to everyone we know about the fact that fossil fuels are outmoded and stupid, while green energy is the energy of the future. The general public will start believing anything if they hear it enough. They aren't necessarily rational, but they don't like to be associated with outdated thinking. That's the best idea I can come up with right now, anyway. Also, people don't want to poison their children and grandchildren.
