UN IPCC "solution" is wrong. Dead wrong.

It's simple. We either obey the laws of physics, or we obey the needs of capitalism.

The IPCC took the politically "safe" route of advocating renewables replacing fossil fuels as a solution to greenhouse gas emissions. But as long as capitalism and growth dominate our economics, these renewables will just be consumed in the fire of demand.

To make matters worse, many of them actually create more emissions or just move them somewhere else.

Here is a suggestion for a real solution:

Make cities car-free
Educate all children

This will break the critical mass of the autosprawl system, and encourage falling birth rates.
