These nine submarines, eight of which will be new Block V Virginia-class submarines, is the Navy's largest warship building deal ever.

Different style of nuke, and isn't up for comments by tree huggers, wouldn't be prudent.

Navy nuclear power plants are built with money as no object, they run highly enriched fuel, are very small, modulate output, the reactor waste is highly valuable gets recyceled as soon as its safe to move and most importantly of all they appear to be immune or get a free pass from political stupidity and nimbys. Which is exactly opposite of commercial nuclear power plants on all accounts.

Here's why I'm hopeful: Just Have a Think: Hemp conversion to graphene and diamond. Smart carbon capture?

This has it all, vertical farming, dense thermal depolymerization, flash graphene and growing diamonds in a vacuum.

Diagram of the process here

We (USofA) can leave the Paris Accord countries in the dust.

The parris accord is BS on account of it being a logical fallacy.
They say "CO2 bad, oil bad, coal bad, natural gas and fracking bad, electric car good" so the obvious answer to make a whole lot of electricity replace coal and natural gas power plants now and put millions more electric cars on the road while barely making any CO2 is nuclear. But then "nuclear also bad" with no rational or logical explanation. The church of global warming followers are letting their own ignorance fear and stupidity dictate policy.

What did you think about the rest of the post? The last time I heard about dense thermal depolymerization it was a pilot plant that consumed turkey guts.
