I cannot disagree more with Madison.

 

Humans have already eclipsed fossil fuels with nuclear power.... the power of stars.

 

Bureaucracy and fear has hobbled nuclear energy in the US. But in France to whom we gave nuclear energy? Like 98% of their energy grid comes from nuclear power.

 

In my view? Humans will be a multi planet species mining the Kyber belt long after any hairy Hominin is left standing.

 

Even if Humans chose to go back to the stone age tommorow? We are all just standing around waiting for the next asteroid strike to end most life on earth.

The most susceptible species to extinction from an asteroid strike are large and rare animals.

 

Our chances of survival based simply on our population not counting our technology puts us far far ahead of Bigfoot. 

 

Ultimately we cannot burn fossil fuels in space. Nor can we rely on finding them on other planets. Our electrical technology is getting better and better. Although hippies will be protesting lithium mines next.....

 

Its gonna happen, we are gonna get there. OUT there.... Its just a matter of time. We already driving remotely on the surface of mars! Incredible!

Plussed, because that little lesson should be shouted worldwide and daily from every rooftop..........

 

I must not know the players. Looked it up but didn't connect the dots. Help?

The very crowd that cries about oil is the same crowd that undermines nuclear power.  Not to get too political but if it was about carbon we'd be spending all this money (that they're talking about spending) on working out how to turn bio-waste into gasoline and/or diesel fuel.  All that bio-waste is going to rot anyway (and release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere) and so why not convert it into fuel.  Any and all bio-waste contains carbon and developing a genetically modified bacteria that could breakdown and convert waste into fuel would be an entirely renewable fuel.  Even human waste could be used, this would vastly slow down the carbon cycle... of course, it's not actually about the carbon or the climate so this won't be focused upon.

 

End rant.

Don't feel bad, I looked them up and didn't see what they were getting at either.

@norseman

 

My old boss has a son at University of Michigan working in aerospace engineering. The stuff they are working on (electrical engines with the ability to get to Mars) is pretty incredible.

 

I don't think we are as far off as people want us to believe.

 

PS - I'm a Wolverine myself. Not sure if that gives it any more credit or not. Not an engineer.

Our population doubled again in just 150 years to 1.3 trillion by 1850.

 

I think you meant Billion.

A billion here a trillion there... what difference can it make.  ;)

Sonnentag started as a porn director/producer. I guess one can say that he's risen in the world, but AFAIC, he should have been buried unceremoniously somewhere.

 

One of my big problems with Hollywood are the nameless gods running the industry from the shadows while they trumpet the popular faces one sees on the screen. In some ways they're like the little bald headed guys going from corporate board meeting to board meeting, who buy our polticians, and who make all the decisions that essentially direct our lives, but somehow the Hollywood cigar puffers just burn my craw more than the other corporate Boss Hoggs. Maybe it's because of all the glitter.

Executive producer was Steven Spielberg. Director was Barry Sonnenfeld. They are Jewish. Spielberg, Sonnenfeld and George Lucas, to name a few, had cameo appearances in MIB. Reviewing, the cockroach said that it was at the top of the evolutionary ladder and humans are pond scum. The human race is historically littered with trauma.

Our strength is also our greatest weakness. Our electrical technology is developing in leaps and bounds but in this country we still have a fragile electrical grid.  Our electrical technology is susceptible to EMP threat. 

 

Meanwhile, with noted exceptions, we've become more and more dependent on everything electrical. Take it away in a strike against our electrical grid and people, other than survivalists and preppers, are in deep trouble.  Power outages,  food delivery slows or stops,  planes can't fly, modern cars can't run, hospitals can't treat. A living nightmare. Business is halted unless someone has cash or something to trade as electrical transactions cannot be made.

 

Contrast that with a sasquatch who will find an EMP attack just another day in the park. Whistling as it watches little people scream and cry for help.

All 500 of them!?

 

Look. Your right. But if you plant half the human population? We are still doing way way better than a handful of Bigfeet.

 

Just the prepper population alone is probably in the millions.

What does being "Jewish" have to do with anything?

"Humans have already eclipsed fossil fuels with nuclear power.... the power of stars." - quote.

 

 My different opinion is that this power will eventually kill us. Next solar flare, and it's extinction time, when a great percentage of the nukes in the world melt down like Fukushima. Hopefully some of us will survive somehow. 

 

I just hope every day that S.M. Stirling was a prophet, lol. In the meantime, there's not much to do but be kind to one another and party like it's 1999. 

 

So go track the great beast, Norseman, because I'd love to see TPTB thrown for a loop! Maybe something could be salvaged of this world by a great shake up in what people think is reality!  Go find a second sentient species and rock this world!

Fukushima was ancient technology. We have reactors now that are fail safe. And how many deaths are attributed to radiation?

 

ONE. The tsunami killed 2200!

 

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fukushima_Daiichi_nuclear_disaster_casualties

 

You seem to be cut from the block that believes technology and the human race is evil. Its completely wrong and backwards.

 

Look at the numbers concerning life span per country.

 

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_life_expectancy

 

People who live in countries without basic services like running water and electricity? Die very young by western standards. Many under 55 years of age....

 

The only hope any Earth species has of staving off extinction? Is to become a multi planet species. Im sure humans will take other species eventually along for the ride.

 

An Ark if you will for the coming flood. Because we have near Earth objects whizzing past us all the time in this cosmic pinball machine. Our luck will not hold forever.
