Well here it is folks, hot off the presses.
The "brilliant" men who have cost us so many billions of dollars in unnecessary paper work, half-built, shutdown facilities, and regulations and put us so many years behind in nuclear technology, have now suddenly changed their minds. They have come to believe what some of us non-PhD.s have known for twenty-five years; Nuclear Energy is the best and only viable alternative to the carbon economy. Well DUH! Check this out in the New York Times [full story] of all places:
“Old Foes Soften to New Reactors
May 15, 2005
Their numbers are still small, but they represent growing cracks in what had been a virtually solid wall of opposition to nuclear power among most mainstream environmental groups. In the past few months, articles in publications like Technology Review, published by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Wired magazine have openly espoused nuclear power, angering other environmental advocates...”
So, here we are all of the engineers who were capable of building nuclear power stations are now retired or nearing retirement, thanks entirely to the Liberals and their moronic anti-nuke campaigns of the '70s and ‘80s.
So brilliant are they. So farsighted they were.
These are the people who think they are qualified to run the country. Heck, they couldn't even get this one right, and it was one of the most logical and obvious facts in the whole energy paradigm. They wouldn't listen to conservatives, nope too damn smart (arrogant) for that. This is just another example of why liberals should never be trusted with the reins of government. They’re too emotionally driven. They don’t stop to think what the long-term consequences might be.
A few of us knew they were wrong. A few of us saw what was happening and predicted the ultimate consequences. But no, don’t take time to really examine your actions, just run off and start protesting. Just run up and handcuff yourself to the gates and try to shut down the reactors. Yep, if it sounds good, it must be true. And now were supposed to believe them about global warming and how it is being caused by “greenhouse gasses.” We’re supposed to spend hundreds of billions of dollars in the next couple of decades because of a theory espoused by the same guys who forced us to use carbon based fuels for heating our homes because nuclear energy was “evil.”
The topper in all of this is that we are probably going to have to import nuclear engineers from Europe to design all of these new power plants, and scientists from India and China to make up for all of those that America has failed to produce, thanks in a large part to the Liberal educators and their progressive education techniques that have left America’s school kids sorely lacking in education.
owes so much to Liberals, and someday I’d like to see them all get what’s coming to them. America
Long Live Our American Republic!!!
