Subject: RE: BS: Climate Change Again - New Report
We just can't behave ourselves. Emissions are at their highest-ever levels in spite of "protocols". We look at thousands of wind turbines that operate with the sort of technology that my bike dynamo used to light up my bike lights when I was kid in the 50s (when you stopped pedalling the lights went out) and feel good about it instead of investing in energy conservation and carbon capture. We have India and China enjoying massive growth and the US doing next to bugger all about its emissions. We're stuffed unless we go down one path, and a few years ago I never thought I'd hear meself saying it: nuclear power is the only answer, and we need to get on with it, fast.
