Response to kristopher (Reply #22)

33. Um...um...I really don't think that you are any more qualified to give grammar lessons than you...

than you were qualified to give lessons in any of the other subjects you prattle on about.

One hopes that you are not teaching anyone anything, especially children.

As for soothsaying, I don't believe that nuclear energy will save very much at this point. Fear and ignorance have won, clearly.

Nuclear energy will be prevented - and has been prevented - from saving what it might have saved, and all humanity is suffering as a result.

The insipid and the uneducated have triumphed again, although I do note that there have been people here, on this website, who have made thousands of predictions, never supported by demonstration, over the last ten years that solar and wind energy will save the world.

In fact, during the period that these people have been posting these quasi-religious tracts, the ten years I've been here, about 300 billion tons of dangerous fossil fuel waste was dumped into the atmosphere. From the recent Lancet figures, roughly 60 million people died from air pollution.

And what do we have in response to this tragedy, a grammar lesson on "conditional statements" from someone who has trouble working a keyboard honestly?

The mindless faith based "renewables will save us set" continuously post conditional statements like this rather odious one, http://journals.democraticunderground.com/kristopher/739

This one comes slightly less than four decades after Amory Lovins, dangerous fossil fuel greenwasher, told the world that the United States could produce 16 quads of solar energy by 2000.

The entire world doesn't produce one quad (or exajoule) of solar electricity in 2013. Not one.

Five years ago, on this site, someone told us that the whole would could survive on renewable energy, but five years later, after sucking hundreds of billions of dollars, euros, trillions of yen and yuan, the entire wind and solar industry combined don't produce 1% of the 540 exajoules of energy humanity now consumes.

In the five years after this bit of toxic wishful thinking:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x4666449

...was published, 30 million people died from air pollution, and the concentration of dangerous fossil fuel waste in the planetary atmosphere increased by more than 10 ppm. During the week of December 17, 2008, when this bit of crystal ball horseshit about the grand expensive money sucking so called "renewable energy" scam saving the world was published, the concentration of the dangerous fossil fuel waste in the planetary atmosphere was recorded at 385.55 ppm.

http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/ccgg/trends/weekly.html

The most recent figure, as of this writing, comes in at 396.28 ppm. That's just 5 years, more than 10 ppm.

Look who's complaining about soothsaying!

You won, by the way. Fear and ignorance have a measurable result, recorded, for all of humanity to regret, in the numbers out of Mauna Loa.

Congratulations. You must be very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very proud.

Have a nice day tomorrow.
