Noah Nuke Advocate

The solution is technologically available now. The will to execute it is missing. It’s going to be a lot like Noah’s Ark. Nobody imagined it would rain for 40 days and 40 nights. The need for a solution might be pursued when the ark has trouble carrying all the passengers. Too little too late. The ark survivors might live long enough to settle and seek solutions. If they finally realize that nuclear energy could have saved them will the survivors have the know-how?
This is a pretty grim metaphor. But there is plenty to like about nuclear science that goes beyond bombs and nuclear energy. By embracing the benefits of nuclear science maybe we can finally evolve rather than devolve as we seem to be doing now.
