Stop Digging

Science has never been more clearer than this piece from McKibben:

"But as the new math makes clear, keeping fossil fuels in the ground is the only realistic approach. What’s unrealistic is to imagine that we can somehow escape the inexorable calculus of climate change. As the OCI report puts it, “One of the most powerful climate policy levers is also the simplest: stop digging.” That is, after all, the first rule of holes, and we’re in the biggest one ever."

King of the EREV/PHEV category is still without any doubt the Outlander. The recent addition of the VW Golf is also showing great strides forward, I expect that to gain a few places in the course of this year.
