More to the point... think about it: We could have transitioned by now. We could've had global ecosystem reserves, green economies, all the wealth that the world simply put the torch to, transformed into plastic waste and pollution, poured into a concrete infrastructure that will stand crumbling for 1000s of years, our era's own Egyptian pyramids as a "message" to the future. They are going to look on us as idiot savages.
Right now the biodiversity summit is happening, and they commiserating about how none of the goals from the meeting 10 years ago have been accomplished. Personally, I've seen 40 years of a status quo, squatting on the planet, and taking a giant dump all over it.
Human cultures have proven themselves to be extremely irresponsible, so excuse the reticence in accepting this absurd idea that everything will go well, just by spreading nuclear material around the planet. Azerbijian and Armenia just concluded a shooting war in a region that contains a nuke plant on some of the world's most seismically active geology.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArBWy1aFdsM
This is what happens when 2 'religions of peace' come together.
You guys can't even do the math on the economics right. All you guys do at this late hour in history is wave your hands around as if that is some kind of solution. You're screwed, its only a question how badly you're going to get screwed, and how much of that screwing you are going to help with.
Complaining about solar panels, Germany's marginal energy mix, pushing a stupid meme about nuclear power.. dumb.
What do you think the world's autocracies will do with cheap, clean, affordable nuclear power? Save the climate? Can we move past delusion? I don't think so. The world is absolutely in the grip of irrational, insane cultural belief systems like these, that teach little kids the world is an illusion and not worth caring about. You think lowering the cost of energy to next to nothing is going to help?
