As mentioned in an earlier comment, I have no objection to nuclear.

Framing this as a moral issue where every human being needs to have an epiphany and take personal responsibility is not going to solve this problem. We need to take political action to end the use of fossil fuels.

And please note that I didn’t cause this problem. In my country the per capita emissions are 0.89 tons per year. Western development caused this problem and it is people like me who will suffer disproportionately.

Moralizing simply isn’t the solution to this, or anything really. People, flawed hypocritical people, need to put social and political pressure on industry and governments to stop the use of fossil fuels. That’s it.
