So the answer to this is that conservatives need to step up and vote to authorize nuclear power, and wind and solar. Desert fleas notwithstanding. We would, if we grasped the reality of global warming, still want industrial jobs, industry, and reliable sources of energy to run factories.
Coal can run out. Oil can run out. Sunlight will not, not in any time frame we care about. And before the coal runs out, we might run out of safe places to put the resulting CO2. We're going to find ourselves fighting to get wind and solar and nuclear projects built. Best we not lay up too many quotes that can be thrown in our faces when that day comes.
