Re: Green new deal

There has been a lot of noise about the lack of nuclear power. I just wanted to clarify that its not because we are against nuclear power, its just that its not something that is feasible within the context of the 10-15 year time period we are trying to make the shift within.

Construction time alone is 7-10 years but when you add in the permitting, licensing, and litigation involved, you'd have to tack on up to another 10 years. So now, we are talking about up to 20 years before you can get a nuclear power plant online and I haven't even talked about the waste issue yet. Thats 20 more years of fossil fuels.

With that said, it'd be wise to leave that out of a plan where the goal is to IMMEDIATELY shift energy production to renewables.

The green new deal resolution is pretty flawless other than the fact that its too vague. All of the criticism has been about things that were either only on the FAQ, or were just made up by special interests.

The globe has had no #hurricane-strength tropical cyclones since May 3. Only twice since 1990 has the globe had 0 hurricanes from May 4 through June 2: 1995 and 2016."

That's fine. But the next time you hear a politician talk about "increasing catastrophic events" this little fact hopefully will be ringing in you little empty head.

Wait, is a one month stretch, at the opening of the storm season, with no storms supposed to be significant when we are talking about changes measured on the scale of geological ages?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1995_Atlantic_hurricane_season

Quote :
"The 1995 Atlantic hurricane season was a hyperactive Atlantic hurricane season that is generally considered to be the start of an ongoing era of high-activity tropical cyclone formation in the Atlantic basin. It is tied with 1887, 2010, 2011, and 2012 for having the third most number of named storms. The season produced twenty-one tropical cyclones, nineteen named storms, as well as eleven hurricanes and five major hurricanes."


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Atlantic_hurricane_season

Quote :
"The 2016 Atlantic hurricane season was the first above-average hurricane season since 2012, producing 15 named storms, 7 hurricanes and 4 major hurricanes."

Great news out of Saudi Arabia. 50% of their oil production has been knocked offline. The Houthi rebels have already made more progress than the Paris agreement.
