194 Days - Compassionate Solution #3 Support Public Investment in Renewables

I won't be back from camping with my students for a couple of days, so today's compassionate climate action comes as a short question.

If you were a kid, which national/global debt would you rather pay off as an adult, once you're grown up — the debt for fighting an illegal war in a far off land, or the debt for making the switch to a safe, clean, healthy,
equitable and peaceful renewable energy economy?

Let's call for using at least 80 percent of all the economic stimulus money floating around to kickstart the renewable energy revolution. For the sake of, you guessed it, today's children of all species, the rest of Nature, the global poor and vulnerable, and all future generations.
