No green technology kills anywhere near the number of .
Rooftop solar panels do not lose ten percent of the power they generate to transmission, as happens with virtually all centralized power generators. David Freeman, former head of numerous large utilities and author of , says: “Renewables are cheaper and safer. Let’s stick to it.” No terrorist will ever threaten one of our cities by blowing up a solar panel.
Accepting its first shipment of waste in 1999, WIPP was touted as the ultimate high-tech, spare-no-expense model that proved radioactive waste disposal “can be done.” But a series of disastrous events in February, 2014, led WIPP to stop accepting wastes—the sole function for which it was designed.
We need to stop climate change and we need lots and lots of new nuclear energy in order to do it. What's the point of attacking nuclear, especially with disinformation? Renewables can provide each hour electricity for better price than today. The are few countries, states and counties that are yet provided by 100% renewable electricity locally produced energy (Kostarica, Uruquay, Lower Austria, Burgenland, Luechow-Dannenberg, El Hierro, Samsoe...) for example. If you want to know how nuclear plants effect our environment/global warming... I've worked at nuclear plants for the last ten years, but I've been an environmentalist my entire life.
Come back with some math on material required up to 2050 to prove your views and that that can be discussed.
The GRID that you dream off does not work in industrialised nations and only exist in island type environments.
You leftists hijacked the environmental movement to force your authoritarian, top-down system on a populace that REJECTED your failed ideology. Any ignorant SOB with a computer can spew off lies and it is posted for the world to see. So for 100 US reactors we can calculate roughly 100,000,000,000 gallons per day nationwide. This directly warms the planet as it is generated by converting inert radioactive fuel into heat that's dumped into the ecosphere. Nuclear fuel pellets embody large quantities of carbon emitted in the mining, milling and enrichment process. Radioactive waste management requires large quantities of fossil and other fuels. Reactor explosions (thus far including one at Chernobyl and four at Fukushima) emit large quantities of heat and disruptive gasses and radiation into the ecosphere. Heat, chemical and radioactive reactor emissions kill huge numbers of marine and other creatures. Huge numbers of birds die from flying into reactor cooing towers. Renewable energy is safer, cleaner, cheaper, more job-producing and faster to build than nuclear.
Unfortunately not enough people realize this and take articles like this to be fact. The total energy output of nuclear is what it is, whatever the electricity generated, after a few days, everything will be converted to hear. It can provide all the power our civilization needs.
