  •  I think Turkana is paid to come here (0+ / 0-)

    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 probably shouldn't comment. (1+ / 0-)

      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.
