documented by Timothy Snyder, The Road to Unfreedom: Russia, Europe, America 104-10 and ch.6 (2018). In 2016, climate damage became geo-political. Where does that leave the neo-conservative politics that made Donald Trump? In this larger perspective, those business interests are in the process of being eclipsed. Coal powered the British Empire’s 19 th century. Oil powered the Empire State’s 20 th century. Renewable energy will power the 21 st century. But sunshine and wind cannot be monopolized like fossil fuels. As a new plurality transforms the global economy
