Where does climate change rate on your priority list of issues?

Complete non-issue. Total hoax.

I don't know where I'd rank climate change on my list, it isn't the most important thing, but I will say that when I do get around to building a house it will have solar and geothermal. If they would stop making decent EVs into luxury cars, I would buy one in a heartbeat.

There are options. Nissan leaf leaf, mini has a new one and vw will have a golf type car soon I think.

Still cheaper though.

Right now Nuclear is about 20% of US electricity generation.  We would need nuclear energy production to quadruple in order to cover coal and natural gas (and that's just for current energy production not including a massive shift to electric vehicles).

US currently has about 98 GW installed net capacity.  At roughly $4.5B per 1000 MW capacity (1 GW) - it will cost about $1.5 trillion in today's dollars to get to 80% Nuclear.  The government subsidizes nuclear at about $8B per year.  So we aren't going to get there without a nuclear new deal of some kind.

I'm not sure if its the climate isn't supposed to change,  or  that 7 billion people are not supposed to affect the climate?  meh, lets just blame the cows!

Global warming... my take. All I got to say about it is this... just admit that it’s humankind that is causing it. Then any argument made for regulation or against are on the table. There are reasonable changes we can make to combat global warming. There are others that are stretch goals at best. But the level of stupidity it takes to discount science to make this futile point impacts all aspects of society down the line.

It’s sorta like calling all news fake. Not all news is fake. And news isn’t untrue if you don’t believe it. But there is fake news.
