With Politics Above All

Speaking of pseudo-scientific hysteria: Radiophobia. Our best opportunty for economical, unlimited, clean, safe energy thwarted by liberal luddites who cry about the agonizing death delivered by evil nuclear reactors. Only its a lie. And newer reactor technology is even more efficient and more safe. LFTRs.

Politics above science; politics above economics—together these two philosophies have created “true sustainability.”  

We first saw the impact in the science world. Global warming was touted as a catastrophic threat to life on earth. Modern life was deemed to be the cause. More specifically, the blame fell to the burning of hydrocarbons—which are the source of the abundant, affordable, and available energy that has given the developed world its many advantages and luxuries. Carbon footprint guilt was heaped upon big energy-consuming countries. After all, we were ruining the planet.

Change was needed to slow the rise of the oceans.
