X : Didn't you work in the environment field?
Me : Well spotted. 1991 - 1994. I used to get shouted at a lot for saying nuclear power was a better option than fossil fuels.
X : Why did you leave?
Me : It was obvious that the market system would prevent change.
X : Do you think it's changing?
Me : Yes, we're creating an entire new market for survival bunkers.
X : You're don't seem very optimistic.
Me : Stupidity of greed is infinite. If you want to fix the problem, look towards China & other Gov action. Solve provision of power.
X : Don't you think the market can solve this?
Me : No, it has a short term focus and the future is is considered an externality. Other than survival bunkers, the best ideas the market will come up with are likely to be rocket ships for rich VCs and bankers.
