…. likens the(climate change) struggle ….. to the Second World War.

Fortunately Dr. Albert  Einstein did see the potential for world conflagration and knew about the advanced knowledge of the Nazi German scientists about the atomic bomb..Thanks to Dr. Einstein, history tells us President Roosevelt put  together a team (the Manhattan Project) and built this bomb, before  Hitler.


Happily much is being done ,to build a device to counter the carbon dilemma .Search ‘ITER’ for details.. Canada was involved initially but withdrew as costs escalated .


!. Canada has long been associated with nuclear power and currently has much potential to further develop its SMALL MODULR REACTORS (SMR) to supply energy in remote locatons,on ships etc https://smrroadmap.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/BRIEF-SMR-Roadmap-Brochure-EN-2018-11-05-1.pdf

“They could supply power to homes, offices and businesses, heat for industrial processes, heat to buildings, and energy to produce clean fuels such as battery charging or hydrogen for transport.”

SMRs are real and happening now etc. ,but  we dither ?

To move forward, key players must act in concert. A  Manhattan approach required !

2.Carbon tax is where we’re at…but …we are rapidly going backward???

3.Canada needs to set some specific goals and measure the results… many other  issues mentioned…solar,batteries,tidal,wind etc..
