It is time to stop quivering in our boots in pointless fear of the future and just roll up our sleeves and build it.

Nice Argument for Mitigation

Sheril Kirshenbaum at the Intersection has spotted an excellent, accessible and remarkably entertaining YouTube presentation arguing for vigorous mitigation.
