    The key thing I learned here was to not assume that financial experts have all the information. The case is He mentioned around infrastructure in South Africa and safety in Fukushima. Great interview!

    Kresso is right. Our Sun is growing quieter every year. Little Ice Age approaching now, so will solar be a good investment when there is little solar strength? Also, would many people tolerate a forest of wind turbines obscuring their views of the oceans, seas and lakes as recommended by this gentleman?

    If you desire specific easy advice then you will enjoy the platitudes of the self-help book genre ie "10 steps to getting rich...". This is was a great piece which serves as the impetuous for thought on trends and investing.

    Please, Stephen, introduce me to the Russians that would be happy with an investment that costs them half their money- I have a great opportunity for them!

    Clearly a smart guy, but am I alone in thinking he is borderline paranoid to a fault? I also fail to see what the investment implications are from this interview

    He should take his own advice. If you should always bet against the government (e.g. buy gold when central banks sell) then you should also bet against the government-sponsored hysteria on global warming. I am confused as to why such a bright guy has bought into the warming hype. 2 degrees of warming is a "tipping point"? Pulleez.

    How'd he come to his conclusions on human-caused global warming? He apparently hasn't considered: 1) no warming for last 18 years (except an El Nino spike); 2) all IPCC models overestimate (not underestimate) effects of CO2; 3) prehistoric levels of very high CO2 accompanied by Ice age. I could go on. He should catch up on his reading.

    I liked the interview in general. Very thought provoking and well reasoned as most of the other folks pointed out.
    I am surprised that he feels Wind & other renewables will beat Nuclear. I remember watching other talks by folks who bet only Nuclear has the scales to be a true competitor to Coal, Oil and Gas. Everything else requires too much landmass or technological advances.

    Only another person as smart as this man can really understand him and what to do about it.
    Sorry I'm just not smart enough to understand this.
    By the way what should I do with this damn bicycle?

    Don't peddle your investment in wind. It's solar.
    Green house effect physics is known for 100 years, Earth feedback loops not at all. For all we know we could be heading for Ice age.
    Otherwise the best RealTV interview. Brilliant.

    Every watt of unreliable wind/solar requires base load additions which can only be provided carbon-free with nuclear. Once we solve the storage (battery) problem we can shut down the nukes.

    As someone who has worked in many a Nuclear Plant shutdown I can inform Stephen that the principal reason Nuclear plants shut down every 18 months is for refueling , maintenance is also carried out .

    Over 50% of America is still on coal, declining, yet it will take eons to get away from it and the the internal combustion engine. No mention of our 5% of the population taking 24% of the energy?

    Nice recap on human ingenuity from ag to industry to info-tech.

    Nuclear waste has been stored for 40 yrs... No problemo! Even less of a problem is we cook it to 90% rather than the current 5%
