Yeah, we’ve got climate change but we’ll innovate our way out.  Essentially, the plan is business as usual with some minor adjustments.  It’s called minimizing. I admit the problem but at a far lesser level than reality.  There’s a 100 foot tsunami on the horizon and I’ll get out a canoe.  The implied promise was the same old American arrogance in the belief that we are way too smart for this problem.  Couple of round abouts, Levi using less water and cleaning up the environment will take care of this problem.  No need to worry here.
