For Romm, Hansen is a heretic because he advocates rapid development of generation IV nuclear power technology including the LFTR. The Sovietologist puts his finger on the real issue:
With Romm's favored technologies, 350 ppm is impossible; with LFTRs and IFRs, 350 ppm becomes feasible and potentially not even that difficult.
Romm's fanatic opposition to nuclear power, inspired by soft path guru and pseudo-physicist Amory Lovins, far outweighs his commitment to fighting global warming. For Romm it is my way - the soft path - or the highway. Romm would far prefer to see global warming run away, than to see nuks in every back yard.
Romm uses the old bate and switch approach toargue against Generation IV technology asthe Sovietologist notes. Romm attacks Generation IV nuclear technology by a
critique of Gen III+ reactors . . .
