    which is why we need to continue to work extra hard to build the movement that the Do the Math tour is creating across this country.  We need to work with a renewed sense of urgency.  Talk to your friends, neighbors, and especially fellow kossacks.  

    If we really want to straighten out all this crap we really need to think about shit - Holy Shit.

      fuels in the ground will not be enough.  we must transition to sustainable energy AND we must reduce the short lived climate pollutants to buy us the time to reduce legacy C02 emissions which remain in atmosphere for hundreds of years.

      we must do these all at the same time.

        the whole world wants nothing but getting back on track witrh "economic growth". That means emissions growth. Far cry from decline.

        Way to leave fuels in the ground is to not use them. Way to not use them is to be too poor to afford them. Thats what our honest aim would have to become. Make people too poor to consume. Cause if they aren´t, they will, and thats the end of the story for CO2.
