"And the World War II mobilization metaphor is not hyperbole. To avoid
warming of the kind the IPCC now calls catastrophic requires a complete
rebuilding of the entire energy infrastructure of the world, a thorough
reworking of agricultural practices and diet to entirely eliminate
carbon emissions from farming, and a battery of cultural changes to the
way those of us in the wealthy West, at least, conduct our lives. And we
need to do all of that in two, or possibly three, decades."
Via John Hardy, who wrote: "More than half the carbon humanity has ever
emitted was burned in the last 25 years. Capitalism isn't a tool to be
used, it's a disease to be cured."
