Re Nuclear: There is ample evidence to suggest that the civilization we know will not survive another 100 years. Nuclear is technically sweet and might have been a major answer for preventing runaway ecosystem damage. But for one little problem. What human undertaking in the support of civilization hasn’t already begun to fall apart? We can’t even maintain our roads or provide safe water. What part of our country is not littered with improperly stored and processed toxic military and industrial waste? How many aquifers already seriously compromised? The air we breath has transferred so much mercury from power production to the ocean food chain as we have burned coal that this once vast and healthful resource is now a danger to our health, and we are far from ever having adequately cleaned the air for our own breathing that we continue to burden with our crud every day.No. There is no evidence to suggest that the human beings who oraganize and run countries or corporations have ever had the care, foresight, or ability to follow through required to safely implement any form of nuclear energy. It is pure hubris to think that we can manage it. Things fall apart. Given that sad fact and the evidence for it that surrounds us on every side, nuclear could never have been an ethical solution.
Cats? The witch’s familiar? No way.
“Use your brain…” That’s what he did. Just eveloped a little extension of it to do the heavy lifting on the filtering.
Thanks, Mr. Rall. A very nice thought on the way to sleep tonight.
Forcing your fans to see how much they have been willing to accept from more “civilized” presidents and other politicians. It’s true.
Mr. Rall is exactly right. We have no left in this country. We had one, marginally, in domestic policy for a little over 30 years beginning with Roosevelt and built an enviable economy. With stronger and more insistent progressivism we might have made more progress against the bigots, too, as the wealth of society became better distributed.
Because you promote injustice?
So, folks who supported Clinton are just generally supporters of injustice as well?
What’s impressive? Not the promised investment. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/04/30/business/the-tax-cut-buybacks-business-investment.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=first-column-region®ion=top-news&WT.nav=top-news
“He is not a swamp critter.” The most ludicrous remark about Trump, ever. He has expanded and deepened the swamp beyond measure. Has made of our government the one from the old Star Trek series episode on the planet where all the governments are run by the rules of mobsters. When you turn over some of our most critical agencies directly to lobbyists you are not a swamp critter so much as THE swamp critter. The swamp Emperor. The Swamp God.
