Oo, me mate drives one of them.
 
There is no save the planet campaign...there is however a save the Human Race campaign, we are on a down slope as a species and I would say another 1-2 thousand years will see the large part of the Human race disappear, in 3-4 thousand years we will have all but gone and in 10k we will be nothing but another evolutionary failure gone the way of the dinosaurs.

The Earth however will continue to spin until it is swallowed by an expanding Sun and dies in the throws of the Sun exploding
You sir are an optimist.
 
Without having to dig too deeply, minimal research suggests that those who favour such a view are the type of men over 30 but still living with their mother, looking for a scapegoat to blame for their utter failure in life.
Interesting, because you remind me of the sort of person who stubbornly refuses to accept the sat nav has taken you down the wrong road and that large low bridge ahead can't exist because technology and the bosses would never lie to you.
 
No money in it. Cheap energy for all is a non starter if pollies can't extract dash and business can't make obscene profits.
If that was the case then there would be no fusion research at all. There's plenty of funding available, just not for cold fusion which never actually happened. Fleischmann and Pons would never have got past peer review but they didn't bother and went straight to the media instead.

It's almost as if the 'scientists are making up global warming to get funding' conspiracy is just that, a conspiracy theory.

They're just doing it to throw you off the scent until the mother ship gets here.

Britain could lose its longest-lasting patch of snow this week: 13ft strip in the Cairngorms dubbed The Sphinx is set to melt for the eighth time since records began in the 1700s due to warm weather


The Sphinx is a lasting patch of snow in the Cairngorm mountains in Scotland
It has only melted over the summer months seven times in the last 300 years
Experts fear the number of meltings has increased, with three in five years
It is expected to melt again this year for the eighth time, returning in the winter



The Sphinx - so-called because of the rock climb directly above it - is the UK's oldest patch of 'permanent' snow. and since the 1700s has melted in 1933, 1959, 1996, 2003, 2006, 2017 and 2018. With the risk of a melting this year in 2021.


Experts fear the number of meltings has increased, with three in five years

Not true, going by the dates given,

What caused it to melt in 1933 and 1959
 
And cows. Cow farts add huge amounts to CO2 emissions. However I wholeheartedly agree, there's way too many humans on the planet. We're long overdue a big war or pandemic.
Did you know something we didn’t

The science is settled and they never get any predictions wrong

Or do they?

They're know something is going on, but everything else is far from settled and what this science consensus has done is licence the natural and authoritarian desire of some people to dictate morality downwards to the masses. So trying to impose veganism, or replacing your gas boiler with a heat pump has nothing to do with the climate, but opposing any of this stuff is somehow denial.

Note: Climate change has become a religious allegory for moral virtue and failure to abide by the new consensus is very much a sin, because like any religious thing you have to make self-sacrifices to appease the gods. It wouldn't surprise me at all if we ended up moving from a covid passport to a climate health passport.

We are pouring billions into the black hole of fusion.
We are as close to building a time machine as we are to practical fusion .
The genius's that are trying to crack large scale fusion have apparently forgotten how to build nuclear power stations .
So we pay our steadfast allies the Chinese or French to build them .
And the money is gone and we will not have a time machine and if we did we'd get the tech nicked and buy them off the chinks.
FFS.
Unless there is a technology leap of the magnitude of MOSFET in the fusion field it's not happening in your lifetime.
Sodium/sulphur/ sugar/ battery tech looks a lot better and closer.

I keep coming back to thorium…
