Oil Drum post

There is quite a lively discussion of my Oil Drum post going on this morning.

Great post. And great comments. You are doing a great job of educating the masses.

The negative comments boil down to

a) we don't want any cheap energy, just encourages more people/development

b) wind/solar, storage, massive grid, ... can do it all

c) it's not here yet (so don't invest so it will be here in 10yrs)

Yes, it boils down to what CharlesH notes, I think. Amazing no one brought up economics. I thought the discussion on materials for high temperature were interesting all the way around.

The interesting admission by the social-reactionary "Ender" is that "LFTR and mass-molten salt storage for renewables is 'vaporware'. So...basically, they are both vapor ware so why should we choose renewables again????

I think Ender exposes the very reactionary nature of this green percscription: "a DC radio, a lantern"...etc. P O V E R T Y

In the end Enders agrees we should build LFTR. So I think we are making progress.
