Oh for fuck's sake, you've really got your panties in a bunch, don't you? Actual trolls must have a field day with you.
Umm, no I don't got 'm in a bunch. Your reply indicates I really pissed you off though.
I never said 'solar sucks'.
You did write this:
Except when it's a cloudy day.
Except when it's night time where you need power.
Except where it's not practical or possible to have solar panels.
Two comments about that, one, it's true you disn't specifically use the word "sucks"
But if we're going to be that precise, and since you used quote marks, why don't you point out where I said that you said "solar sucks"
Now, bashing fusion power is just plain silly, even if we don't have it
Seriously pal - who you arguing with? I think you are having conversations in your head about what I've said.
I'm not bashing fusion power at all. I'm bashing your not very clever comments about solar panel technology by comparing to a technology that doesn't exist yet.
And, finally: I'm sick and bloody well tired of the NIMBYs, environmentalists, and whoever else that gets their panties in a twist over anything with the word 'nuclear' in it.
Yes, I can see you have some anger issues. Don't transfer them onto me.
We have to transition out of fossil fuels, and the sooner the better, and nuclear power of some sort or another frankly one of the best and cleanest alternatives.
I wholheartedly agree.
Fission is messy but honestly it may be the best short-term solution
I likewise believe that fission can be made safe. It's really a matter of true recognition of the concentration of energy, the effects of radiation on materials, and allowing a conservative engineer have the final decision on every matter of safety. Not bean counters, not CEO's, not the guvmint.
So environmentalists and their alarmist ways need to calm the hell down and stop spreading FUD to the uneducated masses, I'm sick of hearing it, as are apparently so many others
Here is where I have some telling for you, although given your brittleness, I know you won't take it.
Do not for a minute think that a lot of people were told that nuclear power generation was prefectly safe. You can look up those words and see them emblazoned for you. Do not think for a minute that people were told Fukushima was safe. Three Mile island was a close call, but in the end, relatively minor.
So what you and your "sick and bloody well tired" of an opposing view folks have is a real and serious credibility problem.
1. You can rail on about how safe nuclear power is, but not many people are going to believe you. They are going to remember how they were told it was safe, then figure you are just telling them more of the bullshit - and you can quote me on that one.
2. Watching Chernobyl and Fukushima - not many want to get any of that yummy nukey fireworks. See number 1.
3. Acting as if anyone who has any ideas to the contrary is your enemy, or stupid, is not going to further your cause. You made completely incorrect assumptions about me based on my calling you out for comparing a technology that doesn't exist yet to a technology that is operating right now.
That's all I did, and you managed to extrapolate a lot of things from that, all completely untrue. You are a really bad advocate for nuclear power.
