Einstein's theory of relativity have been experimentally tested, climate change mitigation hasn't.

See the difference?

I think so...

Sure, man made catastrophic climate change is pseudoscience and climate change mitigation is a hoax but the GPS in your phone is remarkably accurate.

Sure, man made catastrophic climate change is a possibility given the overall climate direction and climate change mitigation may be needed but the GPS in your phone is remarkably accurate.

LOL Imagine That…. Constantly frozen in the present of this 3 o’clock. Hmm Can we use this as a preservative for storage of information. Like the Black Hole does and then release it all, through the evaporation of the Event Horizon into the VOID! Hmmm smells like the Big Bang all over again. On a smaller scale. Hmmm is the Universe getting to the Micro infinity dimensions of existence as it expands. A multitude, of Black Holes, producing a mulitude of Great Bangs with a Multitude of Universes. Would some come to collide at some point in eternity? Is our Universe experiencing such a collision? Hmmm Consider the 11th dimension that requires gravity to be external to our present position in the void. Oh well think I’ll go to the beach and gather some rays..

Correct Einstein proven {so far} as being correct in his theories.
False to say that there is no science to our climate. Requires some research on your part,“IF” you are truly interested. Try paleoclimatology and a few surrounding studies that contribute to this historical knowledge of our climate. Take any one of their theories and seek to disclaim it or find an error in their facts and then we can discuss that. Keep in mind your source will be required and the complete means of how the theory was purposed and proven. Then present your “Facts” that can prove their error. Rambling, opinionated, imaginary substance will be ignored, as it has been addressed several times through out this thread.“OR” have you already forgotten that?

I didn't write "no science to our climate", I wrote there are no peer reviewed experimental test of climate change mitigation.

Einstein's theories have been experimentally tested and refined so we have practical applications from his theories. The man made catastrophic climate change theory hasn't been experimentally tested either.

Someone trained to test theories would publish a compelling experiment in a peer reviewed journal. Then we'd read about it in the news.

Don't depend on "brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver" to do anything scientific. Even it agrees to this contention.

However, "brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver" takes on himself & has no power to ask questions, receive answers, or use such knowledge for societal advancement. Never did it obtain science or mathematics degrees. Never did it obtain upper class science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra or pre-calc for its poorly earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa.'brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver' has made errors of 1 million TIMES, 1000 TIMES, 3000 TIMES, & 73 million TIMES.

What "brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver" does ask, is what has been known for decades. If its sins weren't worse than its arrogance, "brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver" is silliness personified & it has no intelligence in any science or mathematics. However, beyond silliness, "brian_g stumble butt dumpster diver" is a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AND 4-time alleged AND 4-time proud threatener.

SoE,
LWR plants and LFTR plants are totally different, so converting the first to the second would be impractical. However, since LFTRs have a much smaller footprint than a typical LWR, it should not be difficult to install one on current LWR reservations and at least make use of the grid infrastructure.

Weapons grade materials come from totally separate facilities. It is not practical to make weapons using power reactor Spent Nuclear Fuel. It is even less practical to use material from a LFTR NPP.

It is apparent you have not researched. Just as Einstein’s theories have evolved through experiments so has paleoclimatology and the supporting contributors. They as in any science are always refining their experiments. Like I said it require for you to actually read about paleoclimatology. All you are doing is simple callow rhetoric and opinion’s. No substance.

That is for you to discover through your own research and education. No matter what pearls I cast before you, you will not comprehend them.
Then we return to your cycle of callow rhetoric… and no substance….
