excellent points, of which being Pragmatic is the most important one.
If one is pragmatic about climate change the first thing one does is look at cost benefit. Once this is done, other than very low hanging fruit, like moving US from natural gas from coal to generate power, nothing comes close. Two basic undisputed facts. First, number of people in extreme poverty declined from 30% of world’s population to 10% from 1990 to 2015. Pretty good given the climate crisis has caused our house to be on fire. Second, if one looks at the highest maximum temperature by state, 24 states had their maximum high from 1930 to 1940 (before global warming), while only 2 from 2010 to 2020. SO we are not exactly burning up.
