“I hope I’m wrong, but I think were going to make a mess. There will be sea level rise, but I hope we have not passed the point of no return before it’s too late. Humans are not good at long-term problems. There are things that give me hope. If batteries become economically competitive the market costs work with you even without capturing the cost of carbon. Sustainable energy based on renewables may become viable though we will disrupt our local economy. It will correct easier than we think. The crews that maintain offshore platforms are already transitioning to offshore wind farms.”

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
