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.

John Shanahan, civil engineer, editor allaboutenergy.net: The American 2020 election in November will have perhaps the biggest consequences of any election in its history. CHOICE ONE: huge, even one-world government, where a few ideologues opposed to rules for a Republic established by the Founding Fathers pretend to solve all the country's energy, economic and social problems. CHOICE TWO: small government with maximum freedom for all. The choices are crystal clear and will take the United States either to a beautiful place with plentiful energy and prosperity or to where everyone is dependent on the government in a miserable economy. Wind and solar energy or fossil fuels and nuclear power. Don't decide on the personalities of the individual candidates. Decide on what they will deliver for you and our country.
Norman Rogers, Physicist. Contributor to Powerline, Board Member: CO2 Coalition, National Association of Scholars, Policy Advisor: Heartland Institute, Member: American Geophysical Union, American Meteorological Society: It is easy to tell when an energy source is “dumb”–i.e. inefficient, unreliable and expensive. Smart energy sources like coal, nuclear, hydroelectric and natural gas, exist because they satisfy a permanent demand for cheap and reliable energy. Dumb energy sources exist because government has put its thumb on the scale in the form of subsidies and mandates. Dumb energy will cause disastrous collapse of the modern world, even walk-in conquests by enemies.
