    What a load of crap. “Oh we should look at each sector…” More delay. Counting on splitting something most people have been misled on into 8 different topics the public understands even less and can and will be misled on even more, by each industry. (Aided by ALEC and the Republicans.)

    Solutions:
    Threaten Sinemancha into allowing civilization to survive. Or exile W Virginia and evacuate Arizona as a nuclear proving ground. Then don’t use it for that.
    Declare an emergency.
    Pack the court. Pack all the courts.
    Start processing statehood for DC and all the territories.
    Pass a massive, comprehensive, emergency Green New Deal.

    Sector Solutions:
    Electricity: Cheap clean safe reliable renewable generation.
    Transport: Electrify, prioritize public transit, build a meta-national high speed rail network.
    Buildings: electrify, efficientize, clothesline paradox energy:m solar heating & cooling.
    Concrete: Cob & adobe, wood, Roman concrete and other recipes.
    Steel: low-emission methods as in Sweden, substitutes.

    Or go back in time and embrace progressive positions on all issues for the last 4 elections thus achieving a supermajority in all 3 houses.

    At one point the IPA board member says that (currently) biofuels cost more than petroleum products. I was yelling at the screen “Not when you cost out the externalities!”
