Swiss Info, Luigi Jorio: Banning construction of nuclear power plants and limiting to 45 years the use of existing ones. That’s what a people’s initiative from the Green Party, to be voted on in November, proposes. It has not been endorsed by the cabinet or by parliament. The Swiss voted to abandon nuclear power after the utilities and regulators provided very safe, clean nuclear power for Swiss citizens for more than 30 years. With media and anti-nuclear organizations accomplishing this, enemies of democracy, freedom and capitalism don't need to lift a finger to weaken the West. Voters are doing it for them.
Irene Aegerter, physicist, Simon Aegerter, physicist: Nuclear Energy has a bad name and is allegedly not wanted by the people. Yet, even after Harrisburg, Tschernobyl and Fukushima it remains the cleanest, safest and most environmentally safe source of energy and – if done right – will become the cheapest. With new generations of nuclear reactors, the perceived dangers of nuclear power will be eliminated: The Generation IV reactors are inherently safe in normal and abnormal operations, they are proliferation resistant and they use the long lived "waste" isotopes as fuel. They utilize Thorium and all of the Uranium, thereby making the available resources essentially inexhaustible.
Frank Dreves started the website sundays-for-landschaft.de to provide photo graphic evidence of the terrible things that wind turbines do and the problems they will cause in the long term for modern economies in Europe and North America. The Extreme Greens are as bad for Canada, the United States and Germany as the seizure of the German government in the 1930s.
John Reilly, Co-Director of the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change: If solar panels and wind turbines keep getting cheaper, why bother building anything else? Because as we add more solar panels and wind farms, their productivity declines. And while the cost of individual solar panels is low, when there are enough of them, they impose real costs on the rest of the system. This article contains good information about wind, solar and nuclear energy. However, it is based on the premise that use of fossil fuels cause Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warming, which will soon be settled that they do not. The literature is full of articles that have good ideas about energy and bad science about the carbon dioxide cycle. Unfortunate. Worth reading for description of wind and solar energy.
