Conjunction of materials and reading
Last night, we did the "Friday Night Video Rental", tried "Ice Age / The Meltdown" and the irony was that, flipping through the channels before starting the video, I caught part of Al Gore's "Inconvenient Truth" (which I've commented before here.).
Sooo - a character in Ice Age is predicting the end of the world, that all the critters would drown. (Where was Al then?)
Anyway, some reads:
Back in '05 Peter Schwartz (Edge: PETER SCHWARTZ):
Wired 13.02: Nuclear Now!
Digging some more, found this presentation and discussion:
Long Now Discuss > View topic - 02006-01-13 > Peter Schwartz and Ralph Cavanagh
Need to do more reading, but the idea that Nuclear Power is an answer to Global Warming is compelling.
