The Prof and Climate/Energy Scrap
The fear of Nuclear Power among your posters is surprising, considering the fact that your readers are supposed to be intelligent.
The French have 80% + of their electric power generated by Nuclear Power Stations.
They don't seem to have any problems- and I am sure that I would soon hear about any little hitch.
Sure Chernobyl in USSR was a disaster, as was almost everything in that mismanaged empire.
Tens of millions died in the time of the Communist Dictatorship of Uncle Joe, and his successors , with widespread pollution like no other nation (even China) have seen.
Down here in sunny New Zealand we have the coldest houses(uninsulated) in the world apparently, but we are now trying to improve. My house has underfloor insulation and a second lot of ceiling insulation installed. Paid for by an unusually enlightened Government. Got a modern electric hot water cylinder installed last year to replace the 1952 model! Very energy efficient now I understand.
When I moved into this house 40 years ago , I dug trenches and installed field tile drain around the house to keep it dry (clay soil),-less heat required.
Drive my car to town for shopping (about 2 mile trip) as arthritis makes pedal power a non starter.
I guess I am trying to say that I am doing my bit to save energy (the usual low energy light bulbs etc), just as some of you younger types
I don't however go in for the extreme things promoted by the Greenies (shows bias) like turning off the TV at the wall etc. With modern appliances , the standby power use is bugger all -my TV is less than 1watt.
Peace and Joy to you all. -Greenies and Nuke lovers.
