especially as the jury is still out on the impact.
The Jury is not out at all on what the impact is of increasing the content of a green house gas on the planet. It is disingenuous to suggest that it is...unless of course by jury you dont mean the collective body of world scientists who study and understand the issue and you mean right wing leaning journalist /politicians such as Lawson or other types.
If we reduce the birth rate and manage the planets population all the environmental issues we're currenltly concerned about will fade away
Those associated with population growth may go away bit the one about increasing energy consumption per person, decreasing amounts of fossil fuels and the increasing levels of C02 will not stop if we reduce birth rate
I am not saying population control or numbers will not be an issue but "curing" it will not cure us of all environmental issues
FWIW latest studies suggest the rate is flattening out and we will peak at circa 10 billion though of course there is debate on this.
As for nukes in the short run they are part of the solution though decommissioning and storage are serious issues with no solution as yet
The green movement has long been dominated by people who think that society would be better if we all grew our own food and wore grass shoes.
Straw man and just denigrating thos eyou opose whilst mirepresenting what they stand for
The green movement hate nuclear, not because it isn't the answer but because it IS.
WTF that is just gibberish not least because your next paragraph argues about the greens now getting on board with nukes
For society to revert to their imagined pre-industrial utopia, there must be no way to continue as a modern economy.
This is why ever increasing numbers of environmentally minded people are becoming pro-nuclear,
Its an interesting debate without any unanimity within the green community and certainly pro nukes is gaining ground
because they are scientifically minded people with the habit of critical thinking who care about energy future rather than engineering an agrarian society.
Straw man and personal attack again
Any chance you could use crtical thinking rathe than gross misrepresentation of peoples positions whilst contradicting that point
