The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), with much ‘help’ from government leaders ,past and present, and many celebrities , convinced most, that the end of civilization is nigh… . The IPCC ,and those supporting scientists, who so effectively convinced UN leadership, that CO2 is the ’enemy’, might now work ‘as hard’ to convince their own local government leaders to curtail CO2 production, while we observe gradual reversal of the effects of that excess CO2.
Some promising ideas are in various stages of development..
1.France produces more than 70 % of it electricity from nuclear fueled power plants. Should more follow the same path ,as an interim step ??
2.The Small Modular Reactor (SMR) where Canada and other countries see much potential to reduce the carbon footprint..
3.The ultimate fix could be the ITER project. Canada not a member ? . ITER’s mission is to demonstrate the feasibility of fusion power…much ‘ITER’ info online …
4.Many ‘solutions’ yet to be fully evaluated….tidal power, wind, solar ,geothermal ,hydrogen fuel, carbon capture, retrofitting…. etc.
