    it's encouraging, but we are tip-toeing forward instead of sprinting.

    That last article nailed it. Exponential growth in renewables, but whose annual additions in energy are still smaller than the annual increase in global demand.

    But they are getting close. And when Ashful endorses the Green New Deal, I will start to sleep better at night. ;hm

    I teach environmentalism in coal/ old coal country. Its hard to get people to look past their struggles with income because that is their most pressing issue. The number one message I use is that the coal is running out and their are job opportunities in gas/ alternatives. Politics is not "killing coal," a shrinking supply and competition from cheaper alternatives is doing it. I agree that we are not moving fast enough, but I see hope in the economy actually driving us into a greener future.
