  •  If not nuclear, how about nothing? (0+ / 0-)

    We use too much power. Our non-negotiable American way of life squanders energy massively and thoughtlessly. At some point we will power down. The paradigm of permanent growth is stone cold dead in spite of all the rearguard action to defend that dinosaur.

    At some point we will power down. There is no need to replace all our current electric capacity one to one with solar or wind.

    My electric bill says I use 1/4 of the juice someone my age and station is expected to use. I make zero sacrifices. I have no elaborate energy-saving schemes in place. I have simply declined to fill my living space with mountains of consumer crap. The American economy is based on crap. Cut the crap.
