Climate Change, Part 2

About two weeks ago, I posted comments about climate change and the conference that was going on in Paris. The conference is now over and according to the Associated Press, 200 nations have agreed on a plan to “ween the earth off fossil fuels”. Obviously, the net effect is to reduce global warming. The article goes on to cite that we have to eliminate 7.04 tons or 15.5 trillion pounds of carbon dioxide in order to keep the surface temperature of the earth from rising. The goal is to keep the temperature from rising more than 1 degree C (1.8 F) .  Although there are plenty of skeptics that doubt the success of such a plan just as there were with the Kyoto Accord, that doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t do what we can now to at least slow down the destructive effect of global warming.  We have the technology to implement solar and wind energy producing equipment.  We must make use of it!   But, as I stated in the previous post, all it takes is money.  Is there anyone out there willing to invest in solar cells or wind turbine-generators?
