Over the next ten years, I predict, the mainstream of the environmental movement will reverse its opinion and activism in four major areas: population growth, urbanization, genetically engineered organisms, and nuclear power.
Another issue I hope will get more attention soon is nuclear energy. I hate how everybody talks about
- Kyoto (if all Western countries adhered and lived up to their commitments, the effect on global warming would be negligible and the World economy would be in recession)
- Wind energy (apart from the fact that it is way not commercially viable, am I the only one who has noticed how ugly and noisy those massive fans are?)
- Other assorted energy sources (all pies in the sky for the moment)
as if they were realistic solutions and spits on nuclear energy. We need to go nuclear as soon as possible: Now!
