Economics doesn't depend on fossil fuels.Energy is the issue.The longer you beat the same drum,the longer it will take for those you influence,to turn away from fossil fuel.And the longer it will take to reduce necessary capacity.
I've told you three times now,that China and India are exempt from emissions until they reach industrial parity,as defined by the U.N..Concentrate on the Unites States.That's where you live,and have an impact.
I strongly recommend that you spend time with the 2nd law of thermodynamics until you realize the folly of combustion,in an era of renewable electricity.
