Scott Brown, CEO of New Energy Capital and former member of Advisory Board of National Renewable Energy Laboratory: Scott Brown's journey to understand how reliable, high energy density nuclear power is essential for the modern world and his journey so far in understanding the effects of carbon dioxide from fossil fuels is very interesting and important for everyone. His story is similar to Michael Shellenberger's at Environmental Progress. Although both Brown and Shellenberger consider the catastrophic story about carbon dioxide to be settled, Mother Nature has the last say and the world will have to wait a few years until all the forecasts of catastrophes have had a chance to happen. Two things are fairly certain: a) The world is unable and will not stop use of fossil fuels in the near future and b) The world is unable and will not implement nuclear power worldwide in the near future. It is physically and industrially not possible. But nuclear power is the only long term solution and it definitely will happen. Some people are focusing on things that are supposedly very urgent. Others are working within the realm of more realistic possibility to do the best for people and the environment everywhere. The accompanying photo shows a typical nuclear power station in France with two units and place for two replacement units. This is the best use of nuclear to date in the world. Congratulations to FRANCE.
