I've watched part 3, good, although I felt there was a bit too much of an optimistic bias - especially on Thorium. He also pretty much dismissed Peak Oil by the implication that unconventional oil and enhanced recovery would make up any shortfall, "the easy oil is over but technology will fill ...

Why don't think tanks "get it"?

Just seen this posted on Facebook - why is it that such "think tanks" don't appear to have a clue about ecology and resource depletion? This guy clearly doesn't have a clue about all of the side-effects of the techno-fixes that he promotes - or is being totally disingenuous.... http://www....

Hi Lewis, welcome back, with a bang! Presumably the "Parasol loss" is the "Global Dimming" effect mentioned a few years ago? (Parasol loss) The predictable outcome of its loss is a rise of realized warming by 110% (+/-30%). Are you sure about that? I would have thought that it wo...

"Off Topic" is where all the stuff that's hardly related to PO goes - it's usually moved to there by a moderator.
