9. Why do you constantly misperceive anything less than pollyanna-ish acceptance of 100% renewables...
Edited on Sat Sep-03-11 07:55 PM by FBaggins
...is the same thing as being anti-renewables?

It's really not rational.

There are plenty of people who are in favor of rapid growth in renewables and large expenditures on research and developemnt... whi nevertheless recognize that renewables aren't going to power the world by next Friday.


And, while I'm not one of them, there are LOTS of people who are not in favor of nuclear power but correctly recognize coal as a FAR larger danger that must be dealt with in the short term while there's still a chance (if there even is a chance at this point)... and the irrational paranoid focus on nuclear could be killing the planet.
