"We need pragmatic solutions that are fact-based, sensible, and effective to reverse the path that has taken us into dangerous territory."

An excellent manifesto. Why, then, does the Bank not consider advocating nuclear power as a pragmatic option? Carbon pricing, investment in renewables and energy efficiency, and ending harmful fossil fuel subsidies are an important part of the solution. Yet they would appear to fall short of the urgency demanded by the situation if we are indeed serious about 'turning down the heat' and avoiding a four degree warmer world, whilst at the same time doubling energy supply.
