People opposing wind, solar, and battery placement deserve the climate disruption they will reap, without my sympathies

That was 2011. And note the opposition to putting PV on roofs, let alone putting panels on already cleared agricultural fields.

Yeah, all well and good, but we’re on a clock. Whether or not the climate system will wait for our nose-in-the-air preferences for how our views look is an open question. If there were an instrument invested in it, I would short it.

Read and understand Weitzman from 2011:

Weitzman, Martin L. “Fat-tailed uncertainty in the economics of catastrophic climate change.” Review of Environmental Economics and Policy 5, no. 2 (2011): 275-292.
