Okay, perhaps “featured” is a bit of a stretch, but an 80beats article was indeed shown on-screen, clear as day, in yesterday’s episode of the Report. The second segment was on several nations racing to exploit the Arctic. While showing a screen grab from our site, Stephen said (it’s cool—he and Discoblog are on a first-name basis), “The Russkies have announced a scheme to power their Arctic oil drilling with floating nuclear power plants. This is a brilliant scheme. The one thing I always thought was missing from nuclear power plants was the ability to capsize.”
The segment also included this gem: “Well, America can not allow an Arctic nuclear gap. That’s why we have to leapfrog the Russians in technology, by cutting out the middleman and simply drilling for oil with nuclear missiles.”
We can only hope.
