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.
Richard McPherson, electrical power and grid security expert. He is pursuing executable humanitarian solutions under the nexus of agriculture, water and energy: American diplomacy needs to bring together countries as one providing commercial nuclear power to the world, like Australia, Canada, France, India, Japan, and the United Kingdom. Nuclear technology and funding are available. In the United States (“US”), Idaho and Tennessee have the resources for an advanced Generation IV reactor to be online in 2023. In Idaho, Premier Technology, Inc., located in Blackfoot, Idaho, working with MicroNuclear LLC., Brentwood, Tennessee and the University of Idaho, in Idaho Falls, Idaho can team with the Idaho National Laboratory (INL) also in Idaho Falls, to provide the push the world needs to witness.
Katherine Birdsong, B.Sc. in biology and environmental science. Advocate for nuclear energy. Educator for youth and young parents: The use of commercial nuclear energy in the United States and in many countries around the world is currently at a crossroads. The current nuclear production for the nation is averaging about 20% of the total energy generated. This is, on the world’s grading system, a “C” or “C-.” It should be a “B” or “B+” but the U.S. has failed to move the ball enough. Nuclear energy, as a practical issue, is a moderate success. However, nuclear is not succeeding in its enormous potential to grow and alleviate critical needs - energy - environment - medical - for today and, more importantly, the future of this country.<
The World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2019 covers many nuclear power technologies and programs in key countries. It also covers how the nuclear industries reliance on concerns about fossil fuels causing man-made global warming. This topic is definitely not settled and the nuclear industry will be disgraced if they are shown to have taken the wrong side on this complex subject. The nuclear industry should stand on its own merits and leave the debate about carbon dioxide from fossil fuels to real experts in this field.
