10. Not that big a deal, really.

I hear you. In the end I'm not one bit invested in disproving your argument, because it's good to look up and think about what you're arguing. Giridharadas' book is on my shelf, and I've pushed it for a couple of years now.

And, being a marxist at heart, I'm not really a big defender of "good billionaires," relative to the structural poverty that they probably know their generosity maintains. I'd like to believe that they'll know that no amount of money can buy their descendants a future, given the biospheric destruction we're just beginning to notice, nevermind act on.

Thank you for your thoughts, which I'm looking into, since I'm a firm believer that it's better to err on the side of overachieving when it comes to climate mitigation, than to be gradualist or exploratory. I say throw everything that works at it rather than second guess what will or won't work.
