This is my long fb post addressing an article that attacks nuclear energy by claiming that renewables are cheaper.
Cleantechnica article shared by Global Warming “Fact” Of The Day:
“Correcting Anti-Renewable Energy Propaganda” 
Buckle up, this is a long one.
They start out by attacking nuclear energy, our largest source of clean energy, and referring to proponents as “anti-renewable propagandists.” Continue Reading
Parodies for Nuclear Power.
Lizzo – Truth Hurts parody. Here’s the original for reference, and here’s an instrumental version for anyone who wants to sing along.
Why wind great ’til it gotta blow great? Continue Reading
In past posts I’ve talked about the arguments against nuclear energy, and refutations to those arguments (1. Basics, 2. Capacity, 3. Waste, 4. Cost). But what is nuclear energy? In this post, we will explore how nuclear power is generated.
So, what exactly is nuclear energy? Continue Reading
Many studies have been done analyzing the cost of installing, running and maintaining nuclear power plants (NPP’s), and many articles and blogs have been written arguing for or against nuclear using cost as an argument; most articles that lean heavily on the cost argument are trying to explain why nuclear isn’t feasible. I will talk briefly about that but then I’m going to attack this issue from a slightly different angle. Continue Reading
Less than a year ago I downloaded a joke Geiger Counter app that would sound like something hot was nearby if you turn your phone a certain way. I played with it at the grocery store to try to mess with people but I don’t think anyone even noticed. Continue Reading
Why nuclear, and not wind and solar? Less waste.
Another major argument that’s often used against nuclear energy is the issue of waste; what to do with spent fuel rods, contaminated parts, etc. It is often said that nuclear waste can remain radioactive for tens of thousands of years. Continue Reading
For starters, we absolutely need to get away from fossil fuels. The argument that the earth warms and cools over cycles that last thousands of years are based on a half-truth; this cycle consistently has global Carbon Dioxide levels of around 180 part per million during ice ages, and around 280 ppm during the warmer times. Continue Reading
Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted (over a year actually). I have a new hobby, I own a couple of Geiger counters now, so I collect uranium glass and similar low-level radioactive items. I’m in the process of writing a paper where I look at all the main arguments for and against nuclear energy and analyze them. Here is a basic outline/summary of what I have so far. Citations will be given in a future post, this is just a draft. Continue Reading
