    I tend to agree. Although I probably differ as to the amount of government investment that is necessary to achieve this goal. Personally, I think the market is already moving in that direction on its own, particularly as more and more people become conscious of environmentalism and sustainability.

    I think we can plant more trees with or without the cooperation of business entities. But, yes, there does need to be active protections of the environment against the depredations of private greed.

    Just let it all go, Ethereal, exactly as they wanted. When the stock market goes, they will wish that in green industries they had invested.

    Fell for the political hysteria did you? I hope you realize the IPCC is a politically organized and funded organization.
    The Green New Deal is the Fyre Festival of legislative proposals. Everyone spends all their money on what's promised to be an amazing destination only to get there and find yourself sleeping in a tent and selling your soul for a bottle of Evian.

    That's the standard conservative "I don't care about reality, my feelings are the most important thing" type of position.

    Most conservatives make it a point to publicly act that way. Look at them here, all trying to out-conspiracy or out-genocide the others. Demonstrating irrationality and immorality to other conservatives shows them how the speaker is one of them, as opposed to being some kind of horrible reason-and-morality-based liberal.

    This is a lie, as you are part of one. As because, the reality is, the cost of alternative energy is a known. So, the lie is your own. You do have a farm.
