Does anyone else even care about this? The mainstream media didn’t seem to think it merited further coverage. Facts and economics are booooring.

Who wants to hear about things like “Rapid Transition from fossil fuels could be an economic disaster.”

Would those of you who are truly dedicated to accelerating our progress away from fossil fuels, please comment?

IMHO we are at a fork in the road leading to the survival of humanity, but that’s one person’s perspective, and I would be honored to get thoughtful feedback instead of tabloid generated rants. What do you think?

What do you think the publications say?
