It's difficult for the federal government to say, “This is the silver bullet that will solve issues of climate variability and climate change”. That's why I keep coming back to those same things, around all of us collectively reducing greenhouse gas emissions and being more energy-efficient. We can't provide advice that would say, “Do this one thing and it will change the lake outside your dock”. That's a scale of resolution that we don't have.
