2019-10-01 Renewable Energy Denial

https://www.resilience.org/stories/2019-09-12/what-is-energy-denial/ I left a Comment: This myths list makes no room for solutions, it ignores what is already being done to address many of its concerns.

2019-09-24 Climate Change More Expensive To Fix The Damage

from FB reply to a comment Sep 27 I watched the video of the press conference on SROCC. What he said is that if the CC deniers delay the changes needed to halt climate change, it’s going to cost many times the amount needed to fix the mess later. “… Over time, paying for climate

I have been reading the series about the spy satellites and their developments during the Cold War Era circa the 1960s and after.

What was your big takeaway from there?” “I found it incredibly chilling to be there. The plant itself is very strange. You don’t smell or see or touch radiation, so you don’t know.
