When I was growing up, my parents were almost involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that.
Some suggestions for you :
Nuclear energy, in terms of an overall safety record, is better than other energy.
I would counsel people to go to college, because it's one of the best times in your life in terms of who you meet and develop a broad set of intellectual skills.
The part of uranium that's fissile - when you hit it with a neutron, it splits in two - is about 0.7%. The reactors we have today are burning that 0.7%.
The most impactful dollars that Australia can spend are actually what goes to help the poorest.
If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25 cars that got 1000 MPG.
Until we're educating every kid in a fantastic way, until every inner city is cleaned up, there is no shortage of things to do.
By 2035, there will be almost no poor countries left in the world. Almost all countries will be what we now call lower-middle income or richer.
U.K. companies are in very international and very competitive markets. If you look at PC penetration in the U.K., it is very similar to the United States market.
In almost every job now, people use software and work with information to enable their organisation to operate more effectively.
Middle-income countries are the biggest users of GMOs. Places like Brazil.
The nuclear approach I'm involved in is called a traveling-wave reactor, which uses waste uranium for fuel. There's a lot of things that have to go right for that dream to come true - many decades of building demo plants, proving the economics are right. But if it does, you could have cheaper energy with no CO2 emissions.
