Geo green fantasies

Peak Energy has a nice dissection of the so-called "Geo Green" agenda. It's a fantasy of energy independence based on nuclear power and ethanol (an energy loser which would cost us more in oil and natural gas energy than the energy we would get out of it). The danger is that this silly agenda which is completely unworkable will crowd out a genuinely workable plan for an energy transition that would include a combination of massive conservation, development of renewable energy sources, and a thorough rearrangement of the way we live consistent with a lower energy economy.
