Woah! Olduvai theory gets a mention at BNC!? Wow. OK, I’ve GOT to listen to these podcasts.

Barry, I’m after a link to the long Adelaide radio chat/podcast, about 40 minutes, where you mention the speed of deployment of nuclear VS the speed of setting up renewable energy to do so.

What assumptions where in those equations for 200 meters of solar thermal mirrors per second, etc? Anyway, just after the link to that podcast because they were some amazing figures.
