John Shanahan, civil engineer, editor allaboutenergy.net: Prosperity and longer lifespan are closely linked with availability of energy from fossil fuels and nuclear. Extremists working against freedom and capitalism are determined to take this energy away. Elected officials in North America are working with them to gain power. They have been at it since 1970. This must stop.
John Shanahan, Civil Engineer, Editor of allaboutenergy.net: A lot of the public in North America and Europe have been led to believe that wind and solar energy are better than fossil fuels and nuclear. Other countries are determined to stay strong with fossil fuels and nuclear. It is so sad to see the downfall of Western Civilization coming from extreme environmentalists claiming catastrophic man-made global warming and sea-level rise. The nations with stronger energy programs will control the world.
(J Goldstein, S Qvist, J Shanahan) USofA - Must/can the world abandon fossil fuels and go all nuclear in 3 decades or any time frame like that?20.Feb.2020
Joshua Goldstein, emeritus professor of international relations and Staffan Qvist, Dept. of Physics and Astrophysics, Uppsala University, Sweden: Their article claims that the world only has 30 years to completely stop using fossil fuels and completely implement nuclear for all uses that fossil fuels are now used. Purely imaginary.
John Shanahan, Editor of allaboutenergy.net, Civil Engineer, David Wojick, Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, CFACT, Washington, D.C., Ph.D. Philosophy of Science and Mathematical Logic, B.Sc. Civil Engineering: Many nuclear power organizations and utilities have contributed to the terrible situation nuclear power is in by passively accepting unnecessary crippling criteria and demands of anti-nuclear organizations. These organizations can't be more pleased. A lot of the public and elected officials are in a state of deep seated fear and misguided understanding about radiation and nuclear power. Before a large new effort for nuclear power can be launched, many things must change. Nuclear organizations must solve real problems holding nuclear power back. With the right leadership, the nuclear industry in the West could be back on track in a few decades. But, this is most likely going to take longer.
