6. If we are using the Mauna Loa chart,

 

why can't I just turn your argument right around and say:

"Nuclear energy has not, despite 62 years of wild eyed and, frankly delusional cheering, ..., addressed climate change. "

Nuclear power has been around for a long time, and yet we are still seeing higher amounts of CO2 in the air. Basically, what I am saying is that your argument based on the chart says less about the prospects of solar energy and more about the changes in population and living standards we have seen throughout the world.

I'm not opposed to nuclear energy, but I would also like to see advances in solar. Indeed, we have seen advances in solar photovoltaic, with the price coming down substantially over the past decade.
