Hi there I’ve been a listener for a long time. Thought this was very interesting. It immediately made me think about the new Bill Gates designed TerraPower nuclear power plants that use depleted uranium(a source we have enough of just sitting to power the US for like 500 years or some crazy number). They are also extremely safe(100% I believe), designed to have no meltdown potential. It would be really interesting to look into potentially using these plants to fund UBI either along with the renewables or while we build up renewables. Since global warming goals wouldn’t be met in the time it would take to build all of the farms needed.
