That's kinda where I am.

It's one thing to get first world countries to shift their energy production to renewables or nuclear or whatever.

But there's a whole chunk of the planet that's developing that's radically ramping up their energy needs, and "sorry you can't do what everyone else did, you have to stay poor" is a really difficult position for them to accept.
Uncertainty is an uncomfortable position.
But certainty is an absurd one.
