I’m back–somewhat worse for the wear after a hastily scheduled international trip.
Lots to talk about. Paris, which at the end of the day seems like an elephant straining mightily to give birth to a mouse. No legally binding clauses. No guarantees of $100 billion. Lots of ‘commitments’ that may prove to be anything but.
There’s Judith Curry’s post on Oreskes’ strident claims that we must fight nuclear energy and stick to solar and wind. What’s interesting is how quickly she’s throwing a cadre of respected climate scientists under the bus in her haste to reject nuclear. Just in case anyone thought this fight was actually about climate, this should serve to remind us all that the main argument is about policy and which group of corporations will actually control our energy future. Looks like GE forever while Peabody is consigned to the dustheap of history.
Lots going on–what’s on your mind? Anything you would like to see addressed in a specific post?
