2. One has to sing the national anthem at sporting events.

And it's kind of like that, a rote recitation that has no meaning.

Lots of money is being thrown at renewables to make them "expand."

The problem is that they are financially inefficient and that they are expanding at only a tiny fraction of the rate at which fossil fuel use is expanding.

According to the 2017 World Energy Outlook, in this century dangerous fossil fuels expanded by 130 exajoules; so called "renewables" by less than 7 exajoules.

The Moltex is well thought out from what I can see, but it's not an ideal kind of reactor and most importantly, it's a paper reactor.
