Arctic is warmest it's been in 10,000 years

"A few years" is more like 15 years for repayment, but costs are going down down down. The real tipping point is when they start making solar roof tiles. Meanwhile coal keeps getting more expensive, and will do so more as the market for it contracts. Even if you ignore carbon taxes, business incentives, etc, it turns out that solar and wind energy are cheaper to produce. And in less than 5 years, chemical batteries will be cheaper than nat gas peaker plants. Everything is coming up Milhouse.

Well, except for the people who have already lost their lives or homes from climate change. Or the fact that we're kinda too late. I got to see my city's coastal retreat plan today, about how we plan to lose a few meters of beach to the ocean in an orderly manner. It would have helped the beach if the Matilija Dam had been demolished by now. But just because everyone agrees that removing it is a good idea, doesn't mean we have the funding to remove it.
