Such articles turn optimists suicidal. These things should be rote learned by all our zealous nuclear inspectors on here.

I think he's a prat. How you read "Armed Madhouse"? This is a "guerilla journalist" who proudly admits that he doesn't try to be consistent or thorough, and who rejects the idea of Peak Oil with this nugget of incisive reasoning:

Greg Palast wrote:
Have we peaked? The planet is producing today twice as much as the maximum predicted in 1956 by the Peaking Man. But the political uses of holy-shit-were-running-out-of-oil! has yet to peak. Indeed, Bush and Cheney are more than happy to allow others to promote Hubbert Peak hysteria in the public. We need Iraqs oil is used as a good bogeyman to get the public behind an invasion that promises to get Americans a fill-up for the family gas guzzler for less than a hundred dollars.

Rolling Eyes

Though reading Biff's link, it appears that he has done a 180-degree turn on this subject. No surprises there.

Why read Palast when there are proper journalists out there? That he expects to be taken seriously at all is testament to an ego out of control.

Ludwig- I said he was readable, doesn't mean he's always right. Smile

Quote:
using Howard Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences, why do people with high logical-mathematical intelligence like nuclear power so much more than people with high intelligence in other areas? Framed this way, it's an easy question.
Or it would be but...I am one of these people, I am against nuclear power and always have been.
