Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Nevertheless, billions of tons of coal, billions of tons of oil, billions of tons of biomass are burned every day, and the number of people who are calling for "soot phaseouts" with the same passion as people who are calling for "nuclear phaseouts," is vanishingly small.

Maybe you should write in excruciating detail some diaries on the most common components of soot and smoke, that would have more impact than your nuclear diaries.

The nuclear debates are some of the saddest I see on dKos, as nobody is convincing anybody on the other side of anything else.

But in a sense they are irrelevant. What we need are coal diaries. Unending diaries on the evil of coal as an energy.

Instead, we get diatribes against the ugly windmills that spoil the view and killed a bat, 3 years ago.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
