Two Nuclear Options

January 30, 2021 by

1

By Paul Driessen ~ We’ve heard about “nuclear options” since Harry was still Senator Reid. America now faces two major nuclear options: one involves political power, the other power to run an energy-dependent economy. In the political arena, President Biden and his allies are already going nuclear. With a resurgent Deep State to back it […]

Nuclear Superior To Wind And Solar

January 24, 2021 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Future energy mixes should show a growing contribution from modern nuclear power plants. That is the core finding of the new “No Regrets Energy Policy” proposed by the Climate Intelligence Foundation (CLINTEL).  CLINTEL finds current governmental energy-transitions to be “scientifically unfounded and economically suicidal” because of their dependence on wind […]

Renewables And Nuclear: False Hopes And Unfounded Fears

November 30, 2020 by

By Vijay Raj Jayaraj ~ The world is becoming an increasingly hostile place for power plants that use traditional fossil fuels to generate power. Even Joe Biden, who is expected to become President of the U.S. soon, has made it a priority to abolish traditional fossil fuel-based power. But among the available alternative energy sources, […]

Modular Nuclear Reactors For Defense And Disasters

May 13, 2020 by

0

By Duggan Flanakin ~ While there has been little interest of late in developing new-generation nuclear reactors to power the U.S. electric grid, some new initiatives at the Department of Defense – spurred in part by complaints of dumping by U.S. uranium miners – may just be the spark needed to move the U.S. back into […]

A Misguided Approach To Nuclear Power In ‘Energy Innovation’ Bill

March 3, 2020 by

2

By Katie Tubb ~ Being “well intentioned” isn’t the same as doing well. Look no further than the recently introduced American Energy Innovation Act. The bill proposes an extensive federally funded and directed research, development, and demonstration program for advanced nuclear technologies through the Department of Energy. It’s Act 2 of the Nuclear Energy Leadership […]

Electricity In The Realm Of The Lion King

September 26, 2019 by

From the team at CFACT ~ By Dr. Kelvin Kemm ~ Hydro power is a good way to generate electricity. In most political circles, it is considered environment-friendly because it does not produce carbon dioxide, and it is not complicated. Norway has extensive hydro and can claim to have very green energy, which Norwegians do. […]

Reflections On Vogtle’s Perennial Drama

October 6, 2018 by

0

By Katie Tubb ~ Some of the dust is beginning to settle after another projected cost increase of the Vogtle power station in Georgia, where the only two nuclear power plants being built in the U.S. today are located. Completion of the 2,200-megawatt project was unclear last week, as the three biggest utility partners fell […]

Renewable Power Australia – Will The ABC Then Promote Nuclear Power?

April 9, 2018 by

1

By Andrew Bolt ~ Australia’s ABC Media flogs its global warming agenda: UK Conservatives are embracing a future without coal-fired power stations. Chris Uhlmann points out the catch – Britain’s other power sources: Can’t wait for the ABC to start pushing for the nuclear power demonised for decades – just as it demonises coal today. […]

By Katie Tubb ~ The past month has seen considerable news on the global warming front—the National Academy of Sciences found that the U.N. underestimates the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) absorbed by plants, Greenpeace’s founder described the group as an “evil organization” that has “lost concern for humanity,” and a paper in the journal […]

Wind Power Fail – 2012 – Same As Always

December 13, 2012 by

4

EVERY WIND TOWER IN THE U.S. CAN ONLY GENERATE THE SAME ELECTRICAL POWER AS JUST 9 NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS, WHICH IS ONLY ONE SIXTH OF THE ENTIRE AMERICAN NUCLEAR POWER FLEET. While this looks to be a questionable and emotive thing to say, it is in fact the truth of the matter. Currently, in the […]

Nuclear Electrical Power Generation – Why The Fuss? – Introduction

October 19, 2010 by

UPDATE 2012.  This series is now more than three years old, and while nearly all the information is generic and still current, what is not current is the Post dealing with costings. This Post was based around information available at the time, almost four years old now, and that information changes quite regularly, so constantly […]

The Major Physical Impossibility Of Solar Thermal Power

October 14, 2010 by

1

This first part here may seem boring, but it is absolutely critical when discussing this matter. If you pass a single wire through a magnetic field, a flow of electrons is induced in that wire, hence, pretty basically, you have generated electrical power, the flow of electrons. So, it stands to reason that if that […]

Kerry Lieberman American Power Act – New Power Comparison

May 31, 2010 by

0

The American Power Act sponsored by Senators Kerry and Lieberman bears some further looking at for some of things it proposes in respect of ‘new’ electrical power. The Peterson Institute for International Economics carried out what was termed as an ‘independent’ analysis of the proposed legislation, basically backing up the intent of the legislation. In […]

NYT Fact Check Failure Agrees With ‘Independent’ Report Fact Check Failure

May 24, 2010 by

1

By its very nature, this is a long post, but it effectively highlights a deception that is being perpetrated on the public to suit a political agenda. Don’t you just love it when, in the name of factual media reporting, journalists diligently chase up the actual facts before publishing what they write, instead of just […]

Energy Suicide: Unplugging America

By Alan Caruba What was that most homeowners and apartment dwellers most feared in the recent record-breaking blizzard that hit the northeast? The answer is losing electricity and that is why the news of the event was always filled with reports of what towns had lost electricity due to downed tree limbs. This was followed […]

One New Nuclear Power Plant – Oh Wow!

February 17, 2010 by

2

Yesterday, President Obama announced funding loans for the construction of a new Nuclear Power Plant in Georgia. This will be the first Nuclear Power Plant built in almost thirty years. One report of this story is at this link. The new plant will cost in the vicinity of $8 Billion. The major concentration was on […]

The Objections To Wind Farms

February 10, 2010 by

0

By Michael Fumento Despite massive subsidies, wind power still only provides about two percent of U.S. energy. Part of the problem is inherent. It takes a lot of turbines to produce the power that a single coal-fired or nuke plant can produce. So wind farms are going to comprise a lot of turbines. And that […]

By Nick Loris TonyfromOz prefaces ….. We have numerous posts here at our site detailing just how safe nuclear power generation really is, and this is just another to add to that growing list. If these people were to do even a tiny amount of research, they would see this too. The renewable power they […]

This story comes out of Southern Italy. Anti-Mafia magistrates in Sicily have opened a sweeping investigation into the wind power sector where local officials, entrepreneurs and crime gangs are suspected of collusion in the construction of lucrative wind farms before their eventual sale to multinational companies. Italian and EU subsidies for the building of wind […]

Nick Loris. Speaking at a Congressional hearing in support of a massive, costly energy bill that would attempt to slow global warming by reducing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gas emissions, Al Gore likened climate change legislation to some of the largest events in U.S. history: I believe this legislation has the moral significance equivalent […]

Part 5 of 5 Parts. Nuclear Electrical Power Generation. In the previous posts, I explained how those two options currently in vogue as replacements for those coal fired power plants, wind power and solar power, are horrendously expensive to construct, costs that will be passed down to consumers in vastly increased costs for your household […]
