I Get No Kick From Champagne
Just when you think you've seen it all, here comes news that the French champagne vineyards are being contaminated with radioactive waste. It certainly brings new meaning to putting a glow on, doesn't it. What will Donald Trump do now, toast with red wine? The very thought of it is revolting. How could we have raised up a bourgeoisie, only to see it poisoned by the very icon of it's existence? The irony of it is bubbling over.
Decades ago, Greenpeace educated us on the perils of nuclear power. They made it very clear that nuclear waste cannot be safely disposed of, in spite of the usual lies from industry and regulatory agencies. But, some folks are just too stubborn for their own good. It was the French government who sunk the Rainbow Warrior out of spite, and now, it seems that the chickens are coming home to roost. But, if it isn't one thing, then it's another. Our friendly petroleum products haven't served us very well, either. What to do?
Is it possible that some have actually discovered free or relatively cheap energy sources, like hydrogen from water, or zero-point energy, but have been bought out, or eliminated, by the oil-worshipping elites? Some would say, yes. Others, of couse, would ridicule the notion, and go on believing that we've made absolutely no progress in energy technology in the last fifty or so years. To them, I would say, don't spill any of that champagne this New Year's. It came all the way from France.
