Response to kristopher (Original post)

24. Joe Romm is yet another arsonist complaining about forest fires.

His claim that "nuclear power has priced itself out of the market," completely ignores the fact that the nearly two trillion bucks squandered on his favorite "alternative" which, um, doesn't work, squandered nearly two trillion bucks in the last decade without producing significant energy.

Two...Trillion...Bucks...

He has spent his entire career trashing the world's largest, by far, source of climate change gas free energy, and is still at it.

The result has been very, very, very, very, very, very clear: 401.85 ppm, CO2, December 2015

A fool like Romm ought not to have the audacity to complain about "learning curves." He has spent a long and essentially worthless career not learning a damned thing.

Hansen's paper has something called "numbers," including lives saved, a subject about which the bourgeois gasbags in the anti-nuke industry couldn't care less.

Prevented Mortality and Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Historical and Projected Nuclear Power The numbers are irrefutable.

As for economics, a subject of which Romm and every other rote anti-nuke is completely ignorant, it behooves him to explain why electricity rates in Germany are more than double those in the neighboring country of France. Until he, or any other dumb anti-nuke can do so while opening their insipid slogan chanting mouths, they ought to avoid the word "economics.

The tiresome fool Romm, who like most rote anti-nukes has no idea how a nuclear power plant works, and is indifferent to the fact that the nuclear industry built more than 400 reactors in less than 20 years that produce more than 25 exajoules of primary energy per year, is simply repeated the same cant of every other very, very, very, very stupid anti-nuke on the planet. The United States built almost 1/4 of those reactors, and it enjoys some of the lowest electricity rates on the planet. Like every other stupid anti-nuke, Romm wishes to declare that what has already happened is impossible.

What an ass!

Romm however, like a clock that's accidentally right twice a day, has made one true statement in this tiresome rehash of balderdash: Nuclear energy is not being held back by "envirnomentalists."

Neither he, nor any other anti-nuke is, in fact, an environmentalist. They are all, 100% of anti-nukes, not in fact "environmentalists." They don't know anything about the environment. They don't care a whit about the environment. They are tiresome cultists who keep repeating the same stupid lies to themselves and to anyone else who will listen. If they knew something about the environment, or if they cared something about humanity, th wouldn't be creating an "economic" incentive for Chinese people to dig massive amounts of cadmium and wild cat lanthanides to build that useless so called "renewable energy" crap they on which they are squandering the future.

That cadmium is never, ever, going to be sequestered again.

Have a nice week.
