Re: Hooray for Nuclear Power

... The larger problem is that climate change is not a technological challenge. It hasn't been for 30 years. It is a political one. Yep. Solving the problem absolutely requires taking the wealth of climate criminals like the Koch brothers and the Saudi Royals. They would rather watch you die than g...

Re: wrong autocorrect

Ayu is right but I would add that the problem is almost certainly a setting in Edge (i.e. not Windows and not this forum's software). If you can't find a setting in a Preferences dialog (probably called something like "capitalisation rules") and you get really annoyed by it :techproblem: perhaps you...

Re: Hooray for Nuclear Power

The problem is capitalism can only produce. It cannot distribute in an equitable sustainable way. It will produce until we are all dead if we don't face this fact. There are no technological solutions to capitalism. This means taking power from the elite with capital and they prefer that we all die...

Re: Hooray for Nuclear Power

I like the idea of a loose string of solar power plants along an East - West line in any country or group of countries to maximise the hours of generation and minimise the need for storage, e.g. the afternoon sunshine in California supplying the e...

Re: When the Monks Met the Muslims

One thing to fill out the historical record and try to correct popular misconceptions. Its another to obfuscate facts in the name of correcting the record. That's true, but I can't see how you mean it to apply to the OP. Are you saying the Tricycle article is obfuscating facts in the name of correc...

Re: Hooray for Nuclear Power

It's all about vehicles. ... There are fuels equivalent to gasoline made from captured carbon now. Again, more local stuff from Canada. We can convert excess renewables into liquid fuels. It could also turn nuclear generation into transport fuels. It's inefficient so far. You lose roughly half your...

Re: Hooray for Nuclear Power

Hi Kim Solar works great on paper in Canada but I know a number of people in the alternative power community and installs seem to only last about 10 years here before they are ripped out. I wish that wasn't the case but it doesn't work like they say in the sales brochures. Output is good in winter ...

Re: Hooray for Nuclear Power

In the meantime since there are thousands of metric tons of weapon grade HEU(highly enriched uranium) and plutonium that needs to be blended down into fuel and burned maybe we can keep the lights on in a few reactors? Fission is the road to fusion and fusion reactor fuels that produce no radioactiv...

Re: Hooray for Nuclear Power
