  •  Why thank you. (0+ / 0-)

    NNadir is perhaps the best pro-nuclear blogger out there.

    I'm sure you're a connoisseur of these things.

    Let's not forget Ruth Sponsler.  She is a very fine writer and an excellent thinker.   I have corresponded with her privately and she is a very fine person as well.

    Rod Adams has been a presence on the internet for many years.   The first nuke stuff I read on the internet was from him.   It was a great pleasure to visit him at his home and to meet him.  He is an original thinker.

    The NEI is getting a more edgy.   I learn quite a bit on their site.   I like those folks.  Eric McErlain, Lisa Stiles, Dave Bradish and many others do a good job.   Of course they are paid to do what they do, but one should work at what one loves.

      and set forth attitudes and misinformation that we who are aware of the urgency of doing something on a large scale to address global warming get to correct for the edification of lurkers.  I believe he or she must be in the employ of the Nuclear Energy Institute.  Curious how Turkana always turns up when you write a diary. I bet Mr. T has a whole closet full of those NEI golf shirts.

      Fess up NNadir:  you and Turkana are obviously in cahoots to make your diaries lively.

      The IPCC predicts average global temperatures to rise enough by 2050 to put 20-30% of all species at risk for extinction.

        I have only scanned his/her/its comments that refer to me by name.   In only one case since the early development of this diary have I been inclined to respond, and this only in connection to the claim that I have only written about solar energy only once.   I produced evidence that I have written extensively here on the subject of solar energy.

        I am known as a "nuclear shill," but really my raison d'etre is about climate change and energy, all energy.  Anything that works against climate change is fine by me and I like to examine the nuts and bolts of all systems.

        I have nothing against solar energy by the way.  If someday solar PV energy were producing more than 25 exajoules of energy per year, I would be a happy camper, like most Kossacks.  Currently though, I think solar energy doesn't quite live up to its marketing - it doesn't produce even one exajoule - but that hardly makes it worthless or implies that development of whatever potential it has should be arrested.    

        Chiefly I am concerned with the arrest of the use  of dangerous fossil fuels.   When dangerous fossil fuels are replaced I will be happy to debate the relative merits of what has replaced them.

          Me too.
