Ben Wattenberg, the host of Think Tank, a PBS show, has been blogging since mid summer, 2006. He has some interesting ideas on a lot of topics including nuclear energy. Here is a quote from one of his posts from August, when such thoughts generally pass through my head.)
It is said that de-segregation created a “New South.” (That is correct. And there always seems to be a “New South” being created.) But the role of air-conditioning is underplayed. The combination of the two was unstoppable. There is a lesson there for the people who live in tropical countries. Who can work when it gets so hot? Air-conditioning — preferably powered by nuclear plants — can change the world, much for the better. Nuclear can also be used to de-salinize sea-water — and that could really make the deserts bloom — if they just stopped killing each other for a while.
Please go visit Ben’s blog and tell him that I sent you there. He seems to be a bit lonelier than he expected to be in the blogosphere.
