Our desire to live comfortably on this planet does NOT give us the right to kill the oceans.

To generate this much new energy, we will need to retool our global economy.
In chapter 9 of the video lecture below titled “Climate Change Recalculated,” Saul Griffith proposes a plan for what it would take to retool the world energy production.
