As you might know, I’ve been reading a lot about climate change lately. I’ve come to the conclusion that we’re pretty much doomed, as far as shedding our dependence on fossil fuels before we murderize ourselves with floods, hurricanes, drought, disease and famine is concerned. Yeah, I know what that sounds like, but I have greater faith in human inertia than I do in human generosity. Nobody’s going to do anything about climate change until everyone does something. And that applies from your neighborhood on up to your country’s international negotiations.
Anyway, I read an article recently that really made a big impression on me. I’ve never been anti-nuke particularly, but given the pathetic state of green technology and the huge lack of political will and dollars behind various green energies, I don’t think we have any choice than to go nuclear, worldwide, ASAP.
But not uranium nuclear. Thorium.
