I've been thinking about that chart I mentioned yesterday. Here it is:
It's hard to say if this is based entirely on policy projections or the reality that it just takes a lot of time to build out renewable infrastructure that is going to replace carbon. The projection is that carbon will be the source of 67% of our energy, even by 2040.
The takeaway from this is that if we're going to cut carbon, we're going to need political willpower to do it. A ton of it. Now.
So what do we get instead? A Congress obsessed with a single oil pipeline that goes straight from Canada to a port in the Gulf of Mexico.
