WilliB is wrong all counts. IPCCs NOT a political organization. He fell for that, spread by the same folk who screamed "WMD!" at him.

He assumes scientists have the same sorry ethics we see in business, unaware of how science works. Inscience everything has to be proven, and there are always those who are trying to prove you wrong. This is not selling real estate of used cars, it depends on facts instead of opinion, something lost on those not in science.

Left unsaid here is the beautiful fact the cleanest power available to power companies is also the cheapest. The City of Los Angeles contracted to buy power from a PV array and battery storage for under 2 cents/kWh daytime, and 3.3 cents/kWh at night with battery storage. The newest Vogtle Reactors almost finished in Georgia have construction costs so high the price of their power will be 15 cents/kWh.

Whose power do you want to buy?

I suggest all look at the IPCC Summary and just the graphs of conditions. Draw your own conclusions, but do not ignore the evidence because you decide to not "believe" it.

Once again: Having earned a Master of Science in this field, I have watched as Big Money has perverted this issue into a political one, not being able to defend the science. The deniers are emotionally-welded to their positions based on political prejudice. We will not change their minds. but we can have them face the facts.

I suggest Greenpeas look up the IPCC Summary with the graphs of actual conditions, and tell us what they find.

Posted in: Japan to keep pushing coal in developing world despite criticism See in context

Coal will kill us and we cannot afford nuclear power. The V.C.Summer nuclear plant was cancelled after wasting over $8,000,000,000. The new Vogtle nukes in georgia are not finished, but their cost so far has pushed their power costs to over 15 cents/kWh. In contrast. Los Angeles just bought power from PV and battery arrays for under 2 cents/kWh daytime and 3.3 cents/kWh at night.

Whose power would you want to buy? Want to store some Nuclear wste for us?

This is momentous. I have no idea what will happen, but I suspect brute force eventually. When governments are SCARED of their own people they become dangerous to everybody.

As an American, I ask forgiveness for what my country has done to the world with Trump.

We are all very embarrassed we let Putin determine our president, and will correct the error.

Thank you.

Have a nuclear village with water for plants, homes, schools, and swimming pools is from the nastiest of the tanks, for the families of the politicians and engineers and managers who put us in this Faustian Bargain.

I have used it daily since the late 1960's.

It is interesting to see the rationalizations of the conservatives now that they begin to realize it is the beginning of the end for them.

Trump had to admit some sanctions on Russia today for the UK poisonings. He seems to be worried how far Putin will let him go with them.

We may have the chance to cleanse ourselves of conservatism.
