So what did the elites achieve at the Paris Climate Change Summit? Besides slurping down fresh snails, tucking into delicious horsemeat steaks, and sipping on 70-year-old Beaujolais, that is. Well, we learned that India aims to produce 1.5 billion metric tons of the fossil fuel by 2020, up about 600 million tons in 2012. To make this happen, India will need to open the equivalent of a new coal mine every month until the end of this decade. Also, many promises were made but none that extend past 2030. Of course, we saw the usual genuflection to renewables such as solar and wind, but no mention that these are expensive to maintain and take up vast amounts of land. The Paris elites would have us believe that we can put a few solar panels on our roofs or a few windmills somewhere, and we will have all the power we need. At the least, it's clear that more and more people are giving greenhouse-free nuclear power another look. They realize that the only way to eradicate global poverty, and its evil stepchildren war and terrorism, is to bring at least 3,000 kWhs per year to everyone on Earth, necessitating an additional 15 trillion kWhs of electricity each year to power the 9 billion people who will live on Earth in about 2040. This almost doubles the amount we produce now, and requires capital investments of well over $5 trillion, no matter what energy mix we choose. Clearly, nuclear will be part of the mix. I can't find if greenhouse-free nuclear power is part of the Paris proposals. Fortunately, Obama was already getting behind greenhouse-free nuclear power. That, at least, is a smashing success.
