A "We're all going to die!" update on the BBC Web site, under the head "100 months to save the planet":

A "Green New Deal" is needed to solve current problems of climate change, energy and finance, a report argues.

According to the Green New Deal Group, humanity only has 100 months to prevent dangerous global warming.

Ya'll get busy on that. I've spent my stimulus check to save the economy and, frankly, I'm exhausted. I pass along to you the responsibility for saving the planet. Barack will take care of the universe.

Ok, so lemme do the math on this...
100 MONTHS to UNDO over 100 YEARS of progress (via the industrial revolution)...
Gonna need a BIGGER pencil for this one.

The industrial revolution was a 20th century development, not an 18th century one?

Lemme see here. The power loom was invented in, ah, here it is, 1780. Oh, I guess you're right, it *was* about 100 years ago.
