John Shanahan, civil engineer, editor allaboutenergy.net: Many nuclear power organizations, experts and advocates focus on claims that nuclear can help solve so-called man-made global warming crises and claim nuclear power can save the world from man-made climate "tipping point" crises. They also claim that nuclear power (the best energy source in the world) should work with wind and solar (the worst energy sources to operate the modern world. For half a century nuclear power organizations have failed to solve real problems in their own industry. This has allowed anti-nuclear forces to easily gain control and effectively stop this wonderful energy source. This article describes some steps the nuclear power industry must take in order to survive.
Richard McPherson, electrical power and grid security expert. He had a career in many aspects of nuclear power and is involved with experts working for the most logical next big development for the United States followed by for the Free World. This will contribute to peace and prosperity and free the logjam holding nuclear power back. In the 1930 - 40s, the world was ill prepared for Hitler and the Nazis and for Imperial Japan. That situation should never be allowed to happen again. To accomplish that, power and prosperity must thrive in free markets around the world. People must have ample incentive to work and be creative. We must respect the environment, nature and bio-diversity. We must get away from extreme fear campaigns and the power they gather.
Brendan McNamara, physicist, President of Environmentalists for Nuclear - UK: The only option considered for Spent Fuel by the British government is in a Deep Geological Disposal Facility with vast chambers 1 km down. The government plans to ask communities around U.K. to allow a GDF to be built in their constituency or Parish. Spent Fuel is 95% Unspent Fuel. Madness!
John Kutsch, Executive Director Thorium Energy Alliance: The potential for use of thorium was studied extensively during the 1950s and 60s. Now worldwide interest is being revived due to limitations and issues concerning safety, economics, use and issues in the availability of other energy sources. TEA advocates thorium based nuclear power in existing reactors and primarily in next generation reactors. TEA promotes many initiatives to educate scientists, engineers, government officials, policymakers and the general public.
