Pessimism: if we keep burning the coal, eventually keeping warm will be the least of our worries. Where's your discount rate now, Timmeh?
Stupidity: can we get out of this Bruce Sterling novel now please?
Blame: it's Coalistan vs. Everyone Else.
Logistics: China can't lay railway track fast enough to move as much coal as they would want to burn if they don't clean up.
Science: energy use drops spectacularly once density goes over 50 people+jobs/hectare.
Schadenfreude: the Murdoch Times retracts its IPCC-bashing. Detail; the text agreed with Prof. Simon Lewis was then mangled to fit with the Party Line.
More schadenfreude: Steve McIntyre hits peak readership and enters inevitable decline.
Optimism: Exponential growth curves cut both ways, dammit. If the wind and solar people keep it up, in 2027 they'll be in charge. Prepare now for the Danish future.
More optimism: I remember when this used to be in books about the FUTURE.
