(Doug Lightfoot, W. Manheimer, D. Meneley, D. Pendergast, G. Stanford) Canada USofA - Nuclear Fission Fuel is Inexhaustible08.Jan.2020
D. Lightfoot, W. Manheimer, D. Meneley, D. Pendergast, G. Stanford: Nuclear fission energy is as inexhaustible as those energies usually termed "renewable", such as hydro, wind, solar and biomass. But unlike the sum of these energies, nuclear fission energy has sufficient capacity to replace fossil fuels as they become scarce. Uranium could power the world as far into the future as we are today from the dawn of civilization - more than 10,000 years ago. Fast reactors have distinct advantages in siting of plants, product transport and management of waste.
John Shanahan - Dr. Robert Stencel, Physics Professor at the University of Denver invited me to give a talk to his non-science students about NUCLEAR POWER and the related topics of RADIOISOTOPES and RADIATION. These are the topics that Go Nuclear, Inc. focuses on for public education. Information is presented from earlier presentations by outstanding scientists and engineers, who specialize in each area. At the beginning of the semester, many of the students were skeptical. Professor Stencel had them study two books and an MIT report before my presentation. They formulated 23 pages of single spaced questions. Dr. Robert Stencel, Dr. Robert Amme and I are thinking about writing a book centered on these student questions, a primer for the general public. This presentation gained student advocates for nuclear power.
