The thing about the climate-change radicals is they want to do away with fossil fuels without having any viable substitute. Wind and solar will never be viable as a replacement — they don’t produce anywhere near enough, and there are issues with adequate battery storage of what they do produce. Nuclear could be such a substitute, and the Chinese have come up with a safer nuclear technology to boot, but after what happened in Japan, no one wants to touch the nuclear option.
A more sensible climate-change strategy would be to focus on carbon extraction, not fossil fuel suppression. We need fossil fuels to drive our economy…and our prosperity.
I am a voracious reader and also enjoy writing. I often have a very different point of view than the popular one. I do see value in debate, and thought it might add to the public debate on controversial issues if I were to express my contrarian opinions. I also started keeping my poems recently (I've written little pieces my whole adult life but never kept any); and I've been a photographer now for over 25 years. So I will be adding an occasional poem and hopefully interesting photograph to the blog along the way, just to spice things up.
