I wonder how things would be different if the environmentalist, Hollywood and Jane Fonda did not kill the nuclear power plant? In fact, I bet the above people were just dupes for the coal, oil and natural gas giants back then. I bet these guys were laughing all the way to the bank. Now instead of having a clean nuclear power based society, we have a planet where you can not breath the air and it is in a death spiral.
I can imagine that electrical transportation would be much more widespread too. Sure ICE cars and trucks would still be around, but with electricity being so much cheaper I can imagine that we would be farther along in electrical transportation technology.
Thanks Jane, Deron.
