Bob Inglis: “Energy optimists. Climate realists.”


I’m not, by their definition anyway, a conservative. In fact, I’m pretty apolitical these days although I will do things like demonstrate. But it’s completely clear to me this problem isn’t going to get solved without people of all political stripes chipping in and helping out, and to push them away by confounding solutions to climate disruption with, say, random progressive causes is not only just stupid, it’s evidence the actor does not take climate disruption seriously enough.
