Is that sort of like when JFK suggested we go to the Moon, it was a hoax because it had never been done before?<quoted text>None of the above, there's never been an experimental test of any of HSL's proposals. Climate change mitigation is a hoax.
I have proposed we continue to improve energy efficiency. Are you actually trying to claim that energy efficiency hasn't been deliberately improved in the past? Really??? Because it's been done repeatedly.
I've proposed we use different (newer) types of nuclear reactors. It's true that they haven't been built commercially, but do you think that's impossible?
I've proposed a stiff carbon tax to free the energy market & FINALLY make it more reflective of reality instead of our delusional, hallucinatory fantasies. In case you don't realize it, carbon taxes have been instituted in many countries around the world without significant adverse economic consequences.
Would such a tax be popular in the US? Obviously not. Getting a root canal in every tooth in your mouth would probably be more popular.
But if it's truly revenue-neutral, more people would benefit from it than would be harmed by it. It may be possible to institute it if people understand the necessity for it.
Of course, the oil industry, the richest in the world by far, owns a significant part of the US government. When Cheneybush were in office, they virtually owned all of it; now they own less.
The oil industry owns considerably more of the US government than they own of the EU government or the Chinese government. This does not bode well for our future.
