32. Of course we are.

Before I tell you how, I want to ask why you put the part of dismissing nuclear power in there? I never have and I don't dismiss it. It seems you cant separate me saying that nuclear is not any cleaner than wind and solar with this belief that if I point this out I must hate Nuclear. NNadir does the same thing and it is juvenile at best and seriously dishonest at worst.
Worst case estimates for stabilizing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations at 500 parts per million put us at 2035, best case at 2050. Lets see, its 2017 so that makes 18 years at worst and 33 years at best. There is your buying time using actual time. We need no "magic power source". Scientists everywhere agree that this is doable, even with the technology we have now. Here are some ways.

Improved fuel economy.
Reduced reliance on cars.
More efficient buildings.
Improved power plant efficiency.
Reduced deforestation, plus reforestation, afforestation, and new plantations.
It even has increasing more Nuclear, wind and solar power all of which I am for.

I honestly don't care if I did or didn't hurt your feelings. I got past that when you kept straw manning me repeatedly and I pointed it out. At no time did you act contrite or apologize for it, you just kept doing it and still are.
