Yes, that's exactly the website I was looking for. Looks like it's been subsumed into roadmap to nowhere. I liked the original content better.

Anyhow, there is a discussion on another forum that I wanted to link that site to. Many people seem to think the solution to GW is simple; that if only everyone put solar panels on their roof and drive an EV, the problem would be solved.
