There's a new Documentary on Netflix about Bill Gates and how, in his post Microsoft life, he likes to try and solve the world's problems.

Apparently 5 years ago he was able to build a very safe nuclear reactor that runs on spent uranium that already exists.

A technical solution that could help cut emissions drastically. But because of Trump's China Trade war and the fact that people still think Nuclear Power is the devil, the plan has been shelved.

There aren't enough batteries in the world to store the power that solar and wind creates. You still need fossil fuels to support those forms of technology and they take a huge portion of land.

Basically people who "want something done!!!" only seem to want to talk about Carbon pricing and renewables.

Both are unworkable in today's economy.
