Andrew Kenny, Nuclear Africa: Decommissioning of nuclear power plants is neither mysterious nor very expensive. In the USA, more than a dozen nuclear facilities have already been successfully decommissioned, and all around the world many more are being decommissioned or are about to be. New nuclear plants are easier to decommission than old ones, so as time passes the process of decommissioning will become easier and cheaper. Furthermore, as techniques improve, especially with the increased use of robotics instead of humans to dismantle the plants, costs will come down and exposure to radiation will decrease.
Andrew Kenny, nuclear engineer, provides a very interesting and easy to read report on the question of what influence the use of fossil fuels and CO2 they produce have on Earth's climate. Fossil fuels have brought immeasurable benefits to people in the First World and some benefits to people in the Second World. The Third World is mostly still waiting to reap these benefits. People hear alarms about CO2 from fossil fuel from the President of the United States, Barack Obama, and the Head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis, etc. To stop use of fossil fuels would be disastrous. Andrew Kenny's article is very worth reading.
