Seems to me that with the evenly divided Senate and Manchin being Manchin that any progress on this issue is if the Republican party stops treating this like a third rail. What it will take for that to happen is anyone's guess. But I'd drop some of my hard earned $ in the donation hat for an organization that is working to that end.

So what's your plan and how fast can you get us there ?  I'm sure you have a copy and paste answer sitting handy.

Even if one assumes climate change is a hoax,
why wouldn't we want cheap, efficient, clean energy
that would benefit not only the country, 
but also the global environment, 
providing resources to the billions in poverty,
and promoting global stability? (p.s., gotta love your half-cocked, half-baked conversation starters)
 
Yeah, it this one was delivered at the end of an episode of the blue screen of death on my 13 year old Windows 7 Dell.  My primary innernet puter.  Reboot, scan, wait, reboot, scan, wait reboot, blue screen.  Pulling hard drives, formatting spares and rescuing critical stuff. I'm on the wife's right now.  Already replaced it, still in the box after 30 hours.  Now I have to configure a brand new one with Windows 11 of which I an totally clueless and still not liking and barely functioning in Windows 10 on the wife's and the ones at work.  So yeah ...

Well anyway ... We are not ready to transition, not even close to ready, yet the push is in high gear without regard to any consequences.  Very recently we went from ...

Gas too high ?  Buy an electric car, that will fix everything. To don't plug your car in during peak demand to keep the grid from crashing.

Huh ?  

The crazies who glued themselves to an oil painting and scrawled "NO MORE OIL" on it.  I bet they would be naked if  they took off everything that they had on that was made from a petroleum product.

It doesn't matter if Climate Change is real or if it is a hoax.  We can only get so far so fast, safely.  This is the same kind of thinking that if I set the thermostat lower it will get to the desired less cooler temp sooner.

No, it is going to take the same time to get to that temp regardless how low you set the thermostat.

NO MORE OIL sounds pretty flipping urgent, immediate and impatient.  According to AOC and her friends, we have 8 years left.  Well unless we keep oil in the equation, we ain't gonna make it that far anyway. 

We get 82% of our energy needs from hydrocarbons.  The best renewables can get to is 25% by 2030.  And they are by design, not reliable, being entirely dependent on weather conditions.

While you may understand that oil is still needed regardless, these people do not and by reading stuff here, most here seem to think the same.

That was my point.

A Dire Warning About the End of Human Civilization

 
Stabilizing at 1.5 degrees C raise is no longer possible, and once we get to 2 C (tipping point), it won't be possible to avoid going to 3 C. The carbon sinks are slowing down (ocean 5%, land 15%).
