John Holdren, Science Advisor to President Barack Obama claims to be pro-nuclear power but says existing technology isn't safe enough and we must not use key advanced nuclear technology, which is essential in the long-term, Thomas Cochran worked with the Natural Resources Defense Council since the 1970s particularly to impede use of nuclear power, especially the kind that uses most of the potential energy and produces the lease amount of radioactive waste, Stewart Brand is the Founder of the Whole Earth Catalog, initially anti-nuclear power turned pro-nuclear power, He also has become a realist about man-made global warming. He is on the right track in all areas. Ernest Moniz was an Undersecretary for the Department of Energy and Physics Professor at MIT. Cochran and Holdren contributed little to actual development of nuclear power in the United States, mainly criticized it.: This NPR interview addresses a topic that is faulty from the beginning. Can nuclear power contribute to saving the world from catastrophic man-made global warming? Nuclear power can not and will not be expanded far enough to displace fossil fuels significantly for many decades. Whatever nuclear construction is accomplished will hardly impact climate change since it is mostly natural. Nuclear power has its own reasons to be promoted, namely lots of energy for a very long time and better for the environment.

Nuclear Power Station Penly in France, like all French nuclear power stations, is the result of excellent long-term planning and optimization of plant design, replacement parts/components and staff. The photo shows two power plant sites occupied by power plants and two additional sites for future replacement power plants. As the first two plants reach their end of life, new plants will be underconstruction and come on line as the first go off. The older plants will be dismantled and the new plants will provide seemless power. The sites were licensed for this long-term operation of nuclear power in the beginning. The licensing process for future nuclear plants will be simpler. This has not been done anywhere else in the Free World to our knowledge. Outstanding.
