Re: What is it with morons
About only 100 or so years ago some techno nerd "scumbag" invented a solution to a problem that didnt exist... and so cars and lorries were invented. Horses, trains and canals were perfectly useable but the new teck started to get use even though people suffrred from range anxiety as fuel was not abundent and wasnt where it was needed when you ran out of petrol.
Solutions to this problem were invented and we are where we are now.
I dont know what the final solution will be, it may be lithium batteries, or some other chemistry, or bio fuels made from algae, or hydrogen converted to ammonia so that it is handlable with current transport methods or something else.
One test of whether a technology is acceptable environmentaly is would you be happy to have your house next to it.
Would you live next to:
a sewage outfall next to a river
A nuclear processing plant
A coal fired power station etc.
If you wouldnt live there you shouldnt expect other to do so. Lets have some ambition for my and your children please.
