The old "let perfect be the enemy of good" argument, eh Bam? CO2 is either the largest threat to the planet or comparably minor potential pollution concerns are. Pick a lane. And no, spent nuclear material doesn't have an infinite half life. Sure, pie in the sky dreams like a global solar-powered electrical grid sound cool but how many generations will it take to build that? As far as I'm concerned, we could look toward using solar where possible and then use more traditional fuel sources whenever solar isn't sufficient (dark days, night time, etc). However it would also be irresponsible to not point out that the amount of waste per unit of energy is enormously higher with solar energy than nuclear. There are trade-offs with each energy technology.

The nuclear option (in the context of Congress) was one of the worst ideas the Democrats chose to employ. The Republicans simply escalated on it for judge confirmations, and now it will escalate to the point the Democrats want to pack the Senate, pack the Supreme Court and build a mob rule majority in perpetuity. That's clearly the most dangerous path for the government to be on. And seriously Matt, lay off the hard drugs. White SJWs are closer to white supremacists than any significantly sized group of conservatives, with their righteous "we are the only saviors of minorities" mindset. But then again you get political dumb asses labeling conservative Jews as Nazis and conservative black people as white supremacists, so such slurs really don't mean much anymore. I don't care whether you'll admit it, but Biden is a terrible person, much worse than Trump. Also, our country is so much better off that Hillary didn't win. Far leftists only care about a politician's sanctity when it's applied to the other side, so spare me the fake protest.

The white supremacists largely support Trump. It's amazing you would argue that point of all things. I'm saying they should have their own party, and not pollute the Republican party. Because yes, they are having an impact on the Republican agenda for the worst.

And yes, the so-called nuclear option's chain of events most closely originated with the Democrats (without going back to an unreasonable time of events). Simply enlarging the the courts won't be the end of it, which is why both sides need to come to an agreement to reset the rules back to reasonable terms where we don't get both sides trying to push the most left/right judge they can find.

It's going to employ millions upon millions of people internationally, which will boost growth and help to pull people out of poverty. All while we gradually work to replace old, dirty infrastructure with new, cleaner infrastructure. It will be all around good for society. And in the distant future we can actually achieve our goals of 100% renewable energy and a stable and hospitable climate again. And hopefully slow and reverse the harm we're doing to our planet in time to save most lives, species, and habitable environments. Time is running out though.

How long will it take? Nobody can say that until people start doing the hard work of planning it out and eventually putting shovels in the dirt. I don't think it will take generations to get something working and get us closer than we are today. It may take a few generations to spread around the world, but it all depends on how much power (meaning influence) we put behind it. If we as a species were to make it our #1 priority to advance, backed by all of the richest countries, corporations, and people in the world I bet it could be accomplished in our lifetime easily.

Obviously there's no perfect answer to solve these problems. We need the best people working on them to solve them though. And that won't happen until we commit to solving them. The longer we delay it the longer it will take us to get there, and the more it could cost us in the end. Most importantly we need for politicians and lobbyists to stop getting to make these decisions, and instead make these decisions purely science-based (meaning respected scientists overwhelming agree with the findings).

You're correct, it's not INFINITE. But its so long none of us will ever see the day the decay stops and the radioactive material is stable.

There are trade-offs with each energy technology.

If we don't start working on alternatives now, we won't have any. Solar is a relatively young industry, and there are many ways it could be improved. You've also discounted wind power, bio fuel, wave energy, and other alternatives to coal and nuclear. There's nothing dirtier than coal and nuclear in terms of potential danger and sickness. Heavy metals are present in solar as well, but the technology itself is cleaner if properly controlled and spent materials are recycled responsibly.

There are idiots everywhere. Do you automatically label them Democrat when you find one? I'd say there are plenty of them on the other side of that coin.

"Biden is a terrible person"
Care to back that up with any proof? Otherwise it's just slander. When we disparage Trump, it's easy, because he's the biggest con-man racist fascist wannabe dictator we've ever had for President. He is a compulsive liar. He takes bribes. He gives away positions of power for money and support for his campaign. He destroys the laws we've put in place to protect our earth, air, water, and sky in the name of corporate profit. He's an adulterer, a fake Christian, and a devil in disguise.

raynebc, I would debate this further, but you are clearly deluded. You consume Trump's lies like they're breakfast sandwiches. Your opinion sounds like a sound bite from Fox News. But you've got it all figured out, so don't worry about it. When Trump goes to prison, maybe you'll lose faith in him. He's over a billion dollars in debt. He's the worst businessman in history, and he's not only bankrupt financially but morally and spiritually as well. He's destroying what's left of the Republican party, and you best abandon ship before it sinks. If the only ones in danger of destruction were the Republicans I wouldn't care, but he's destroying our country too. He is absolutely UNFIT to be the President of our great United States of America. The sooner he's gone the better.

Guys, so, I was wondering, if it's okay with you guys, seeing as how my IQ is only 196, if I could have 15% of your passwords... don't worry, my IQ is not planning to go up to 197 anytime soon, if anything it's tending toward a very safe 195.

The ItsyRealm patch notes since the March 23 birthday release are pretty big:

You've been amazing us all with your productivity on ItsyRealm. :o We've been here for like 14 years and you are top ~5 in productivity AT LEAST. You might even be top 2 TBH. If not 1. :o To be fair, I consume a lot of cannabis+alcohol, and before that a lot of alcohol, and I don't care too much about that stuff, and I care more now than I did when I joined, but I can't think of [m]any things as big.

And I think ItsyRealm will be bigger than Allegro in the end. It has the potential to be. From several directions. It's not a failure if it isn't, but that doesn't mean that it can't be too. It is already more than just something. It's a significant product. It's something very impressive. I happen to love the art, and I think that there's power in the storytelling too (even if I don't agree with all of it).

Or if I do. Meh. >:(

But you've been nailing every aspect so far so I don't want to interfere with the productizing bit. You likely know better than I. I just want for you to remain focused on a release that the world can face. :) Nothing can take away what you've accomplished (side note: this is more true the closer you are to libre/open source/data). You can only go up from here. You're pretty damn high and I think you can go much higher yet[1].

One more day before the final clash. Good luck to you all, I hope your country is not going to be fragmented and fighting because one of the candidate can not bear the results.

the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.

Apparently they thought a revolution was necessary every 50 years or so.

Hard times create strong men, strong men create good times, good times create weak men, and weak men create hard times.

We're in the "weak men create hard times" now.
