lack of harm. safety is a well developed discipline. try telling a construction company or chemical plant that safety = lack of deaths.

How is it anyone thinks this guy makes a worthwhile contribution to anything? Support nuclear, whatever. But to think the uranium and nuclear industries aren’t a bunch of rent seekers is a level of dumb hotter than the sun.

I get why people are frustrated with the Red Cross, truly. I am frustrated too and it is agonizing to see families who so need those funds having to wait. But the demand placed on them by a government who has been happy to let them to lead relief efforts is extraordinary

It’s not about Facebook. Or Twitter. Or shock jocks. They just feed on the carcass of respect and compassion that died when we let neoliberalism turn everything into a matter of money, greed and profit.

. has the strange idea that renewables aren’t mature enough to replace fossil fuels in power generation — quite false. she acknowledges that future nukes aren’t mature, and denies she’s advocating for current nuclear tech. she’s tied herself in nuclear knots.

when you say “can also be useful” don’t you mean “might be useful if it ever becomes commercially available”?

just to reiterate... as per the chart below, over the last decade: • renewables up ~29TWh/yr • coal down 31TWh/yr • no increase in gas use. AEMO, employing ~60 people in its long range forecasting division, is also confident that gas use won’t rise significantly in future.
