To many millions of people, who have been raised in our scientific generation, an insistence that our earth is a mere 6000 years old is un-acceptable. In addition, when some Christians insist that this is the only possible understanding from biblical accounts, such a viewpoint often results in people concluding that the Bible must be wrong. This conclusion can result in them discarding the rest.

Even with free solar cells and batteries, solar power is too expensive. If safe nuclear power is expensive, solar power is a disaster (and so is wind). Here I present an analysis showing that wind and solar are NOT the way to go in terms of economics. Nuclear, geothermal and hydro are the way to go. Clean fossil fuel is a last resort. Safe nuclear? I discuss that in my next book.
