Brookings Study Calls Solar, Wind Power the Most Expensive Fossil Alternatives

stephenmac7 Re:On what timeline? (409 comments)

Solar panels and wind turbines don't tend to live very long, so increasing the timeline won't really help. Plus, if it was a small timeline, nuclear would look more expensive as it would include all the initial costs (nuclear power the first year is much more expensive than nuclear power subsequent years, until decomissioning).

World Health Organization Calls For Decriminalization of Drug Use

stephenmac7 Re:No public drug use (474 comments)

Drug use is not OK for many reasons, just as tobacco use is not okay. It's bad for you health, addictive, expensive, and effectively useless. It also makes people more likely to get hurt by doing stupid things like operating machinery. Concentrations of drug use will have a serious negative impact on the local community by draining it's money (people will be paying for drugs rather than for local services, etc), making the people unhealthy, putting a bad name on the community, repelling people from moving in, and making it a worse place to do any other business, due to the drainage of money.
