The “no regrets” solution to global warming
Whether or not global warming is entirely or largely due to human use of carbon for fuel, the reduction of the dependence on carbon makes sense.
Reducing carbon fuel use will result in reducing particulate caused asthma in children; reducing particulate caused dementia; reducing black lung disease from coal mining; reducing the production of coal ashes, residues, and effluents; reducing the impact of carbon greenhouse gasses; reducing pipeline failures; reducing coal and oil surface transport accidents; reducing pipeline-related warfare; and reducing smog and other air pollution.
The solution is to conserve energy intelligently, to electrify that which can be intelligently electrified, and to get the electricity from non-carbon sources. This will involve individuals making changes that make externality-blind payback a secondary consideration.
Join the solution or you will be part of the precipitate.
