"In summary, keep the priority squarely on the economic upliftment of 6 billion (and counting) developing world citizens, demand no climate change mitigation action other than the establishment of gradually rising CO2 pricing around the world, and shift all targeted technology support to RD&D of new solutions and the subsequent establishment of global value chains and scale.”
I definitely agree with the targeted technology support to RD&D of new solutions. However, policies to implement carbon taxes and providing direct RD&D support have been pushed for decades without making any significant headway towards acceptance. Our experience with Stratosolar can speak directly to the lack of imagination and the inadequacy of current RD&D funding for innovative solutions.
