John Tjostem, microbiology, botany, professor emeritus of biology - Will our children and grandchildren inherit a world that has adequate food and clean energy resources to offer quality of life? Here we examine the need to find a clean and abundant energy source to replace fossil fuels. We also consider the premise that clean and cheap fuel may offer a glimmer of hope for disarming the population bomb. The debate over nuclear power will be a major focus.
Katie Mohr, manufacturing.net - This report shows projected world energy use for coal, oil, natural gas, renewables, hydro and nuclear out to 2035, including modest growth for nuclear power. All energy sources require sound management, design, operations, and maintenance to minimize accidents. Plentiful energy is important to maintain modern standards of living and to improve the standard of living for the poorer half of the world. This can help the environment, nature and biodiversity.
Katie Mohr, manufacturing.net - This report shows projected world energy use for coal, oil, natural gas, renewables, hydro and nuclear out to 2035 with modest growth for nuclear power. The intense debate of catastrophic man-made global warming has to face reality and follow the Scientific Method. The predicted catastrophes of global warming are man-made. One glance at these forecasts for fossil fuels shows that these levels of energy use can continue only with fossil fuels. Nuclear must grow and be well managed.
Kelvin Kemm, CEO of Nuclear Africa, is dedicated to promoting nuclear energy throughout Africa and he is working with countries in Asia who are looking to nuclear power also.
