[ExI] A Nobel laureate and climate change

I wouldn't worry too much about it one way or the other. I read somewhere energy markets really only forecast about a dozen or so years in a advance well, more or less. (Non-market forecasts can be further into the future, though they are almost all of dubious value.) Think back to the dire warnings of coal's exhaustion by Jevons. What came to pass? Not only did the coal supply not run out, but oil became dominant and other energy sources were discovered, including nuclear.

And the 10 to 100 million year fission supply can be
stretched to a billion years plus with hybrid fission-fusion
reactors that Teller continued to research well after this article.
