Looks like the reverse engineers over in Asia have finally gotten brave enough to come up with a product and market it. See what happens here in the States? We're just so damn generous with our ideas.....Oh well, it is good to see a product that might displace and obsolete nuclear and fossil fuel-based power plants. We don't want to end up imitating "art" (see the movies titled below) now do we?
--The China Syndrome
According to Dr. Jim Hansen of NASA, we've got until 2016 to get the carbon in our atmosphere down to 350 parts per million (or less), or we are going to self-extinct.
With bad decision making being done by our elected officials (and in our name) concerning America's energy policy, it is unlikely we'll be able to meet Dr. Hansen's "carbon deadline." It is best to seek to adapt for as long as you can. Mitigation has been abandoned. We are now in adaptation mode because we waited too long to derive a sustainable energy policy. Feel free to comment on this. Reminds me of Neil Young's song, "Are You Ready for the Country?"
