Christopher Jasper, writer for Bloomberg: Synthetics and biofuels are likely to become the mainstay of aviation in coming decades providing liquid propellants for the next generation of aero-engines before the advent of all-electric alternatives. Bloomberg's predictions about catastrophic man-made global warming, the need to stop using fossil fuels and all-electric aviation may miss the mark. Their predictions about the many uses of nuclear power hit the mark. But nuclear power is different than coal fired electric generating plants. Nuclear needs more protective measures against severe terrorism. It also needs a definite plan for used fuel recycling and storage of ultimate nuclear waste. All this can be done.

Rolls-Royce is promoting nuclear power for the right reasons - all the purposes nuclear can be used for. So many nuclear advocates including Bloomberg and Rolls-Royce promote nuclear to be carbon-neutral or reverse man-made global warming. This is a weak to wrong argument for several reasons. The most obvious is that it will be a very long time before nuclear replaces all uses of fossil fuels. Climate alarmists have said for decades that a global warming tipping point is just one or two decades away. Nuclear has many very important uses that should be developed as quickly as possible, not left on the shelf in a nuclear regulators document store room.
