  •  You are incorrect about scalability. Scientific (0+ / 0-)

    American produced a scenario over 2 year ago before the 50% cost reductions and dramatic energy increases that demonstrate the feasibility of converting the entire world electrical needs to solar and other alternative energy by 2030.  

    Meteor Blades has also been the guardian of a second completely different source from one of the international energy agencies confirming the same thing.  I have it on my PC someplace.

    I guess during his absence I should probably pull it up to keep it available.

    Given the 13 year current delay in building nukes, and their inability to compete financially in the private market, as well as the 10 year backlog in casting any additional containment vessels nuclear is unable to compete in much additional expansion even with the rapidly escalating political issues.

    •  Well ... if that's the case (0+ / 0-)

      Scientific American is the premier journal of peer-reviewed scientific literature, isn't it? Who wouldn't believe a periodical that was wise enough to brand itself with the two magic words: "scientific" and "American"?

      No, wait ... that's bullshit, as is the article that you have referenced.

      If you choose to believe a "scenario" because a pop. science rag on the skids decides to publish a story about it, then that's your problem. Please refrain, however, from calling anyone "incorrect" because of it.

      BTW, there is only one International Energy Agency, not multiples. Don't you know anything?

      Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.
