When Ford sells a car, a dealer isn't allowed to take out the engine and put a different one in. When a newsstand sells the Washington Post, no one can go to the newsstand and pay them to rip out the classified section and put their own classified section in - if they could, they would do so.
Until we're educating every kid in a fantastic way, until every inner city is cleaned up, there is no shortage of things to do.
Climate change is a terrible problem, and it absolutely needs to be solved. It deserves to be a huge priority.
