Ditto.

But, as you freely admit, your math is influenced by $$$.

Wow, you are a complete Lovins acolyte. How does it feel to be only out for your own gain while ignoring the needs of the planet?

NRC Analyst Calls To Close Diablo Canyon, CA's Last Remaining Nuclear Plant

greg_barton Re: NRC in the hands of anti-nuclear interests (216 comments)

The point is that hydro is being reduced because of drought. I think you're losing track of which conversation you're having.

What about nuclear?

What math are you trolling about? You can't be bothered to provide specifics? Is that because you don't have any?

What about gigawatt hours?

Plainly you're just a cheerleader with no hard facts to back up your faith in renewables. Os it your job to proselytize? Given your handle one has to wonder.

NRC Analyst Calls To Close Diablo Canyon, CA's Last Remaining Nuclear Plant

greg_barton Re:NRC in the hands of anti-nuclear interests (216 comments)

Math is meaningless when based on faulty assumptions. One comment on that article is spot on: The 18% of electricity generated from hydro power is being impacted greatly by the drought in California. What's replacing it? Natural gas. So your monumental naiveté is playing right into the hands of fossil fuel interests.

You're touting math, but all you have is fairy dust assumptions. Try living in the real world.

Sorry, but no. Unreliable renewables go out every day (solar) or completely unpredictably. (solar and wind) They do not back each other up. Your link doesn't even claim that. Vermont and California are not making up for their nuclear shutdowns with renewables. They're using natural gas and coal.

Which basically means pro-fossil. Don't let the siren song of wind and solar fool you. They both need 100% fossil fuel backup. Shutting down nuclear power plants simply hands energy generation back to coal and natural gas.

greg_barton Re: Self Serving Story? (267 comments)

"Real" currencies have the value of national and transnational economies behind them. What does bitcoin have backing it up?

greg_barton Re:Self Serving Story? (267 comments)

They haven't seen it because supporters of bitcoin are blinded by ideology. They can't see that their rejection of "fiat currency" should cause them to reject bit coin as well. Ironically it's because they have faith in bitcoin itself. :)

China starts molten salt nuclear reactor project

greg_barton greg_barton writes  |  more than 3 years ago

greg_barton (5551) writes "The blog Energy From Thorium blog reports, "The People’s Republic of China has initiated a research and development project in thorium molten-salt reactor technology, it was announced in the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) annual conference on Tuesday, January 25." The liquid-fluoride thorium reactor is an alternative reactor design that 1) burns existing nuclear waste, 2) uses abundant thorium as a base fuel, 3) produces far less toxic, shorter lived waste than existing designs, and 4) can be mass produced, run unattended for years, and installed underground for safety."
