I think there's an international convention that,all weapons-grade fuel be destroyed,so as not to have any chance to fall into the hands of terrorists or rogue states.

The USA is not party to any agreement to destroy all weapons grade material. However, Surplus material can be destroyed by using it as fuel in a power plant.

Blending the weapons grade fuel with uranium would render it useless for a nuclear weapon.
The only way to really destroy it is to fission it.

Understood. There are paths I won't go down in a public forum, as well.

But if your basing it on their comments section, with brigading and shadowbanning that goes on, the 'press agency' may not have control of that aspect.

A 'press agency' is at least somewhat more accountable that a 'social media'. They are poison. My preference is for 'news aggregators'. Especially Slashdot, they have self-moderation and you can view at your chosen level of moderation (so you can get just the highlights, or see how stupid people can get. Your choice.)

I went there to get today's Quote of the day in the footer (""For the man who has everything... Penicillin." -- F. Borquin") and found this story

https://yro.slashdot.org/story/19/03...toxic-comments

Quote:
An anonymous reader quotes a report from Engadget:
Alphabet offshoot Jigsaw is launching a Chrome extension designed to help moderate toxic comments on social media. The new open-source tool, dubbed "Tune," builds on the machine learning smarts introduced in Jigsaw's "Perspective" tech to help sites like Facebook and Twitter set the "volume" of abusive comments. Using "filter mix" controls, users can either turn toxic comments off altogether (what's known as "zen mode") or show selective types of posts containing attacks, insults, or profanity. Tune also works with Reddit, YouTube and Disqus. Jigsaw admits that Tune is still an experiment, meaning it may not spot all forms of toxicity or could hide non-offensive comments. "We're constantly working to improve the underlying technology, and users can easily give feedback right in the tool to help us improve our algorithms," C.J. Adams, Jigsaw product manager, wrote in a blog post.
So They are addressing the issue on Facebook and Twitter with a browser extension. Which is interesting because they're rolling that out after Dissenter.

Check out the megatons to megawatts agreement.
That 90% highly enriched uranium is much more dangerous than plutonium. With about 70 pounds of that stuff any durka durka Mohammedjihad could make a nuclear weapon out of it.

Just in case anyone was wondering, absolutely nothing has changed. China being on the losing end of the trade war burned slightly less coal that was the only thing that slowed them down the slightest bit.

The headline is "China still building an insane number of coal plants"
https://www.wired.com/story/china-is...w-coal-plants/
Why does communist chinese (always small letters lol) always get a free pass? Where's Greta on this.

1. Their carbon pollution per capita is a fraction of the USA and EU.
2. They are a poor - middle income country
3. Many of those plants are replacing individual homes burning coal in stoves for heat and cooking. One coal plant is way better than thousands of little coal stoves. (Both for local health and climate change)

It is very disingenuous for wealthy counties to put the burden of climate change on the backs of poor and middle income countries. To tell them that they cannot use fossil fuels to develop there economies in the same way we have done and continue to do. When the rich countries of the world cut our carbon emissions back to the level of poor nations we will have cause to lecture them about their emissions.


EDIT: The headline reads "China is Still Building an Insane Number of Coal Plants"

The body says:

" In addition to roughly 1,000 gigawatts of existing coal capacity, China has 121 gigawatts of coal plants under construction, which is more than is being built in the rest of the world combined. But here’s the weird thing—more than half the time, China’s coal plants are just sitting around collecting dust. If China already has more coal power than it needs, why does it keep building new plants?"

Indeed, coal-powered electricity generation in China has flatlined, despite the explosive growth in the number of coal plants. According to Daisy Ren, a doctoral student at Carnegie Mellon who studies the economics of energy policy, China’s coal use is expected to peak around 2020. “We should be concerned about whether China is burning more coal in the future, but increasing its coal capacity is not equivalent to using that much coal,”



When the Chinese government started letting local governments approve coal plants instead of central planning those local governments tripled the number of plants under construction. They approved plants that were not needed as "make work" projects and to drive economic activity in their jurisdiction. No different than the ghost cities that have been build and then never populated.

The "fairness" logic is sound, but the reasoning of human behavior isn't. You think if "wealthy" countries cut per capita emissions to that of China, that they will jump on the carbon cutting bandwagon? It doesn't work that way. They would take the opportunity to become the wealthiest country in the world and produce more CO2 per capita than everyone else.

Ironically, extreme socialism is probably the only way to cut carbon emissions drastically because it would cripple the economy. The other way to cut emissions is the advancement of technology, which takes wealth and healthy economies to develop.
