    Someone remarked that the author was "channeling me."

    It did no damn good, however.

    Maybe you could write a disaster diary about the dangerous fossil fuel deaths that have been on going - a death toll matching all the deaths in World War II every decade and a half or so - except it won't be quite as popular as your science fiction diaries, since the case, unlike the coming hydrogen explosion in the ion exchange columns at Hanford that you imagined, is, um, real.

    I would say that I've written, among the 399 useless diaries written here, at least 100 that referred to the deaths from dangerous fossil fuels.

    How many, again, have you written on that topic?

      I am writing about it as we speak.

      look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.

        I'm sure your diary will be as effective at stopping climate change dead in its tracks as the Live Earth concert in 2007 was.

        By the way, according to a paper in the scientific journal Environmental Science and Technology which features of course authors who don't know anything compared to climate activist bloggers, there seems to be a question that has arisen about whether or not the magical solar industry, which is going to save us and proves we don't "need" nuclear energy, is a net electricity producer or consumer.

        Environ. Sci. Technol., 2013, 47 (7), pp 3482–3489:  Energy Balance of the Global Photovoltaic (PV) Industry - Is the PV Industry a Net Electricity Producer?

        Quoth the stupid shill authors:

        Our analysis found that the PV industry was a net electricity consumer as recently as 2010, and in 2008 the PV industry consumed 75% more electricity than it produced.
        I'm sure you'll discuss whether or not it was a good idea to bet the entire planetary atmosphere on this wonderful scheme.

        Or maybe not.

        It makes no difference to me.   I'm what they call a "human being" and I know that as such, my goose is cooked, along with the geese of my two sons.

        I'm not sure whether, even as I recommend your wonderful post, it is a good idea to tell the truth or tell people what they want to hear.-

        Have a wonderful evening.  Keep safe.   Stay away from the Pacific Northwest in case a hydrogen explosion takes place.   It's been a pleasure to chat again.
