Teenager Thunberg angrily tells U.N. climate summit 'you have stolen my dreams'

You have on a number of occasions postulated there are too many people and this is a cause of the current climate problems.

 

So I ask you again, how will you achieve this?

One world government.

Don't complain if you don't like the answer, and don't say it's not possible. Who knows what will happen if the climate alarmists are correct and the sky does indeed fall and the oceans wash over us?

You go girl hold their feet to the fire make them face what’s happening so all of us can start making responsible changes and grow into a more sustainable world I’m proud of you kiddo!

And first of all make her shut up. 

Small point that needs clarifying. It was Greta's parents that filled her head with confusion, hate and panic, ergo they "stole her dreams". Textbook child abuse really. When she gets bored of this cl

It's not alarmist, it's the truth.

 

Now you are entering your fantasy solution of a world government. How do they solve the "problem". Eugenics and the one child policy of China both failed. So how do they choose-what will they do?

PS, you still haven't given a single solution yourself. in response to my question. So, what is your solution?

Give me a proper answer and I will provide you with reams of links to things we need to do.

Pls allow us, or at least, me, to be a bit skeptical about the safe storing of nuclear waste.

There have been insistent rumours for years about careless storage of waste, and lately, my faith in the honesty of the humans is not increasing a bit.

 

Fusion. No, really.

Polywell is one of several projects working on practical small scale fusion reactors, which with proper funding could come on line much faster than massive international fusion projects like Tokamaks. Unfortunately, these smaller projects are underfunded because the  Tokamaks eat all the money keeping many scientists and companies well fed. A useful Polywell reactor could fit in my living room or a submarine, the US navy has contributed funds to Polywell.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polywell

Storage of waste 'fear' is a sign of the irrational fear that has been created around nuclear energy.  I understand why you both think that way - but you are wrong.   The issue is 'nuclear power generation' - the generation of electricity using nuclear power - the issue is not the waste created by using Uranium in nuclear power. 

 

This article will say a little more about Thorium, but the reason uranium was used (USA and Russia) was because it created plutonium for nuclear bombs.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thorium-based_nuclear_power

 

And on top of that there are many safe ways to store nuclear waste now - have you heard of any big disasters involving stored nuclear waste - except in holloywood disaster movies?  And yet there has been heaps of holloywood climate change disaster movies - and all are entertyaining - but all are <deleted>.  And there are other options besides Thorium.  The whole nuclear energy debate has been corrupted - just like the climate change debate.

 

Read your own article. The technology is largely experimental and uncosted, oh and still produces plutonium.

Waste storage is simple but the governments don't want to spend the money on digging deep shafts to put it down. They don't get exotic holidays to gossip about climate change if they spend the money on safe nuclear waste storage.

So, deep ‘safe’ storage in both of your backyards then? Being the leading proponents of it and all...

Yes, that 50,000-year half-life isn't anything to worry about, is it? 😬 Fusion would be a far better alternative. Very little in the way of waste by-products, I believe. I still prefer solar, though I see it as huge collectors in orbit, beaming down a steady supply of electricity planet-wide. There are just no cons, as there are with fission or fusion.

I'm not interested in links. I can google as well as anyone. As someone that has criticised me for my solution, I want to know what yours is. Do you even have one?

 

Why do you say the China policy failed when it hadn't been going long enough to know? I said that before, but you chose to repeat the same thing. Saying something over and over doesn't make it true.

So, your answer to a rational solution is mockery?

 

Any one with a brain cell knows that nuclear waste has to be stored in deep shafts in a geologically stable area. Unfortunately no government seems to want to do the work. Probably because there are no votes in it and all our governments only do things for the next election cycle. There are no statesmen anymore, IMO.

Work out a way that politicians can get elected by putting your solar collectors up there, and there will be masses of them going into orbit before you can say lotsatax.

picking on 16 year old girls. So proud you all must be.

A 16 year old girl that is old enough to have sex, drive a car, leave home and get a job, travel the ocean on a sail boat and address the UN. Seems fair game to me. If she can't take a bit of stick, she should have stayed at home. No one forced her to address the UN, did they, and if she is as clever as they say she is, she should have known what the reaction would be.

The industry is way ahead, and investing as such. All the while, you blokes, are still for whatever reason fighting what amounts to a culture war on this, and picking on 16 year old girls. So proud you all must be.

Good post, but in the last 2 or 3 pages i haven't seen a negative comment against Greta, have you noticed ?

Oh, well, perhaps i spoke too fast.
