. . . “It would be great if the skeptics were right!”

That’s a near-perfect rejoinder whether debating a skeptic or just chatting with friends. Followed with:

“Then the only value of clean, safe renewable energy would be clean air, better health, stronger national security, and conserving our natural heritage.

(I’m easing back into real blogging after a few weeks of vacation followed by intense real work.)
