Prime Minister David Cameron: Save £50 billion of our Hard Earned Taxes.

One last gasp effort from me:  I've just created a Downing Street e-petition which, if we get enough votes, can force a Parliamentary debate to manufacture the first-of-a-kind LFTR in the UK and encourage investment in production-line manufacture of Modular LFTRs.

From the best estimates of costs, we can get £50 billion chopped off the £110 billion Chris Huhne has earmarked for spending on energy efficiency, renewables and CC&S. So, please sign this petition and, if you feel so inclined, please write to the PM to suggest better ways of spending £50 billion than spending it on inconsequential renewables and CC&S.

e-petition: Save £50 billion in taxes of the £110 billion carbon target spend

A Foot Soldier's Adieu - OR - The Last Post.

It's been great - trying to 'save' the planet, but now my humble endeavours have reached an end.

The Weinberg Foundation takes the fight to a higher plane and I really can't believe that a function of trying to enlighten the general public can achieve any worthwhile objective. I've never known the promise of a technology take root in the public's imagination and become a force to be reckoned with. Our politicians need a piece of working gear to intrude into their 'electorate-centred' consciousness, before they'll respond. So, a UK built, first-of-a-kind LFTR, has to be the Foundation's primary objective. 

I'll leave the Blog in place for a while, as there might be some useful archived material, but from now on it's keeping as fit as I can and sequence and ballroom dancing into the sunset.
