The article reports that the coal and oil industries are not going to allow the United States to curb global warming by making major investments in renewable sources of energy. Instead of allowing the U.S. to make the transition to solar power, the fossil corporations have evidently decided it is better to re-engineer the oceans and the atmosphere and perhaps even the planetary orbit of the Earth itself to make it possible to continue burning fossil fuels for another 50 years.
