6. I read and think about energy in all of my spare time.

If you're actually interested in what I think, you might start with my journal here: NNadir's Journal.

I'd guess between 70% to 80% of what I've written in this space refers to the primary scientific literature, and 90% of that is about energy.

As for doing "something" and doing "nothing..."

Doing something that's worse than nothing makes a difference. The question is, "what kind of difference?"

I've spent thirty years considering what has been done, what is being done, what might be done, and, as quixotic as it might be, what should be done.

I have lots of ideas, but they're, um, unpopular.

I certainly know what might work, and I also know what won't work. This bourgeois consumer bullshit about wind powered and solar powered electric cars is horseshit, basically, as even CNN can note much to my suprise, potentially criminal horseshit. It is simply exporting environmental degradation to the poorest of the poor, those who can least afford it.

The most detailed summary of what I think should be done is here: Current Energy Demand; Ethical Energy Demand; Depleted Uranium and the Centuries to Come

I'm an old man, deeply upset about the world my generation is leaving behind. We were pigs.

I've lived a long time, and seen some very stupid things, and indeed participated in stupid things, but without a doubt, these are the most stupid times in which I've lived.

Look at those kids in those cobalt mines! How much hope might they have for a better world? Do you think they'll ever dream of winning the lottery and becoming a millionaire or billionaire who can buy one of Musk's idiotic cars and drive around on freeways thinking, "Look at me! Look at me! I'm green!"

Don't worry; be happy. I'm sure you're working very hard to be "green."
