The end of nuclear power? Careful what you wish for | George Monbiot
Flawed and stalled as the plans for toxic waste may be, at least they exist. There is no way to clean up CO2, the greater evil
...Abandoning a proven and reliable low-carbon technology as climate breakdown accelerates is a special form of madness...
Neither the government nor the fossil fuel companies have any programme for cleaning up carbon dioxide. This waste is, in aggregate, orders of magnitude more dangerous than the materials produced by atomic energy plants, and even harder to make safe. It's a choice of two evils, but one is much worse than the other.
poor old George Monbiot, ]
this should really frighten him then, CO2 producing machines for greenhouses , look at the size of the machines.
"as climate breakdown accelerates" stopped me from reading further. Sorry Mista Moonbat, didn't you get the memo? "Climate breakdown" has hit a brick wall for the past 16 years... stasis, no breakdown, no warmup, no weirding, no nothing. Bupkis. Nada. Zip. Meanwhile, China keeps manufacturing gigatonnes of CO2. Whats up with that?
From Anonymous' link above (post #1), "Some ways in which productivity is increased by CO2 include earlier flowering, higher fruit yields, reduced bud abortion in roses, improved stem strength and flower size. Growers should regard CO2 as a nutrient."
Is that, like a Nuclear-powered Nutrient, George? Can you say "Day-of-the-Triffids?"
