Cure-alls and miracle workers and panaceas are worth their

weight in gold! I am hoping that solar energy will be a

panacea for our energy appetite. Nuclear energy is hoped by

some to be a panacea. Lots of studies and debates are

being done about nuclear energy as a panacea. What do

you think? Does a panacea exist?

It’s a panacea!

Have a good one!
