The hard work of mitigating climate change is the real answer to this problem. How many billions, if not trillions of dollars, must we spend before we recognize that we need to transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy?
Climate change requires that we transition to a fossil fuel free economy: But at what pace? How will we fund this transition? Who will pay the costs? What technologies will be used? If the transition takes place too slowly, we bear the risks of climate change.
