Tech change so massive it bootstraps social change.

Alberta's #1 industry will go from tar to yoga.

clean energy - commercial viability when? Good thing Alberta has diversified from its reliance on fossil-fuels... and that Sovereignty Act from Premier Smith & the 'Calgary FoolSchool' with its accompanying separation threat & presumptive build pipelines anywhere thingee - you betcha!

Alberta won't be suffering anytime soon. This is so far from a practical system it will be decades before it can make any difference. Good to see some real progress though.

Viability maybe in a generation ?

Alberta needs scientists to save its ass, it seems.

If we find out that the economy will be completely made over inside of 50 years should we plan for that ?

It will be made over but we don't know how. We sure can't plan for a concept that has no timeline and may not even be practical even if it can be done experimentally. I'm not particularly worried about Alberta, it will manage somehow but the the whole country has to plan for lost oil and gas revenues, not just Alberta.

The overall benefit to the economy would be immeasurable.

Only if it can be made into a practical means of generating electricity.

You donít know about nuclear waste?  Or the potential for disaster around a nuclear reactor?  Are you really that ignorant?

Maybe sooner than that.  I canít see why cities couldnít be powered sooner than later with this technology.  Obviously power on more of a micro level would be much farther away.

Exactly.  Leftists have successfully frightened people into thinking nuclear power is that of the 1960s.  Itís much safer and completely emissions free, and could be used as a bridge.  But theyíre only interested in reducing emissions their way.

You need to stop worrying about Alberta and more so of the Middle East.

I'm one of the few who dares to say something about Alberta.  As opposed to Albertans who never shut up about Ontario and Quebec
