Nuclear Africa Electricity Position Paper (Kemm, Kenny, Lloyd, Louw, Prinsloo, Serfontein) South Africa11.Jan.2020
Kelvin Kemm and co-authors clearly explain that nuclear power is essential for national progress. South Africa is in a very unique position in which both the developed and developing economic forces operate within one country.
Steven Lyazi is a member of the EFN-USA Board of Advisors in Kampala, Uganda. He describes the problems facing people and the environment in Uganda and across much of Africa. Many serious problems are rooted in African society and government. Other problems are imposed on Africa by environmental activists, western powers and UN agencies dictate what issues are important – and use them to keep us poor and deprived: manmade climate change, no GMO foods, no DDT to prevent malaria, using wind and solar power and never building coal, natural gas or nuclear power plants. This is a criminal trick that denies basic rights to affordable energy, jobs and modern living standards.
Matt Ridley - No man is an island. No energy source is an island. No cause is an island. Each energy source competes based on price, reliability, environmental issues, expandability, magnitude of supply, operations, maintenance, land area required, location relative to centers of population. This article provides a good overview and identifies the problems facing each source, including nuclear.
(Eric Jelinski, James Conca, John Shanahan) Canada, USofA - What energy mix will North America have in 2100?06.Jan.2020
Eric Jelinski, past president of Environmentalists for Nuclear - Canada, farmer, environmentalist, university lecturer with degrees in mechanical and chemical nuclear engineering: There is no such thing as renewable energy. Could you build a renewable energy system without any support from coal, oil or natural gas? I’d like to see the renewable energy advocates mine, manufacture and transport everything that is needed for wind and solar farms and electrical distribution networks using wind and solar alone. Jim Conca, geologist, science and energy writer for Forbes predicts the 2100 mix will be natural gas and wind. John Shanahan, civil engineer says that natural gas and nuclear is better.
