Greg Russak‘s insight:

More evidence for why we need to forge ahead with more conviction, more support, more urgency, and more investments in clean and renewable sources of energy. I’m convinced that if this country could go from basically nothing to having men walking on the Moon in under 10 years, we can find the means for being completely free of fossil fuels in the same amount of time. All it would take is real leadership from elected officials and a willingness on our part as citizens to support that.

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
