    ———I’m working on the equipment side because there are few decent, long lasting wind generators in home, building sizes so I’m going to start producting them beat even the Chinese in price.
    ———But as far as stopping GW it’s unlikely most fossil fuels won’t get burned/used by others if not the US. We could stop a lot if groups would buy up the coal reserves while they are cheap as we have a good fraction of coal in the world.
    ——— Our best way is making RE lower cost and widespread so there is no reason to burn FF’s. Small Solar and big wind already are if well done and small wind can be.
    ——– The best way is to cut consumption through eff by making building and homes that need little energy or even make not only all they need but more to sell.
    ——– In transport my EV’s cost 25% to run compared to similar gas ones and with a biofueled range extending generator have unlimited range. Yet I can’t even get a loan for $30k. But I’m selling my home to finance them instead.
