I’m with you on the nuclear point — we absolutely need to turn first to nuclear fission, and then, once available and cheap, nuclear fusion. I also think we need to diversify our energy by using microgrids powered by renewables, which will help to ensure that we don’t walk into a dependency trap.

The point about meat is relatively simple — you can choose to continue eating meat, no problem with that, or you can choose to cut down or stop entirely. I stopped a few years ago and I’m fine, but it’s entirely your choice. I’m not going to use this issue as a sort of moral high ground from which to indoctrinate as many do, but I do think that, as part of a carbon taxation system, meat will be taxed to ensure that people who want to continue eating meat can, but pay their fair share.
