Feynmen was referring to NASA and the space shuttle, but his statement is universal:
“For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled.”

Most all assertions related to green and sustainable are ignoring how nature works (the physical world and the nature of mankind). In the end, reality bites.

It won’t help to put those who disagree with you in prison (or worse). Nature doesn’t care. In the end, those who oppose fossil fuel will suffer. The more they get their way, the more they will have pain and sorrow.

In the end, we will go to nuclear, first fission, then fusion, but fusion is too far away to consider.

We must work to make our world better WITH fossil fuel, and we must stop demonizing carbon dioxide. It is good. It is an essential ingredient of life.

Watts Up With That?
