    With regular 50+ degree C temperatures and above, cheaper and more robust heat based generation technology of some sort could become viable in places like that (as all people migrate to the frozen wastes of Northern Europe, after the Jet Stream and warm water currents have moved permanently...

    Yes but: https://www.nature.com/articles/news030609-14 It's madness shoving hydrogen through existing leaky gas pipes! Or using it at any great scale to fuel anything at all - there will be trillions of tiny litle leaks, little pffts, leading to all life on Earth's surface developing skin...

    They're up against housing price increases, changes to environmental laws... whenever they plan decade(s) long planning projects like that - in China they sweep it all aside by decree.

    I'm all for Thorium reactors, but it seems only India is seriously considering it's use - more plentiful than Uranium, can't be weaponised (at least, not easily), less waste... with half-life of centuries instead of tens of millenia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thorium-based_nuclear_power

    It's well said indeed! But fascist is as fascist does. My belief is that people like Raab and Patel have serious personal issues, like many who seek power: They will attempt to resolve these issues by using other people. Anyone who seeks power, should be denied it.
