40 million acres of lawns is about 1,041 times greater than the 38,400 acres of solar power needed to supply 100% of US *energy* needs. https://t.co/5MmEcjAKH6

Much of what people confidently pronounce as impossible is easily possible, with the will. It wouldn’t even be that expensive. The reality is that if we don’t do something it’ll be done to us, and hard.
That’s why I classify nearly everyone as a climate change denier because if you “believe” it and think things are just going to be relatively normal in the future, you are absolutely 99% as delusional as some conservative doofus claiming that solar minima are responsible for altered climate. There is no important difference.
