Nuclear Power’s New Dawn: Small Modular Reactors Offer Ever-Reliable CO2-Free Power

STT promotes nuclear power because it works: safe, affordable and reliable it’s the perfect foil for those obsessed about carbon dioxide gas because it doesn’t generate any, while generating power on demand, unlike unreliable wind and solar. One of the feeble ‘arguments’ against it, is that nuclear power plants are of such vast scale that they take longer to build than the pyramids of Giza, and cost twice as much. That argument has been given short shrift in the US, where NuScale has just won approval for one its small modular reactor’s designs, with big implications for power generation in the future. The small reactors can produce about 60 megawatts of energy, or enough to power more than 50,000 homes.  >click to read< 13:18

Ontario’s Green-Energy Disaster Doubled Power Prices, Fueled Backlash – A transition to renewables sent energy prices soaring, pushed thousands into poverty, and fueled a populist backlash. In February 2009, Ontario passed its Green Energy Act (GEA). It was signed a week after Obama’s Economic Recovery and Reinvestment Act in the US, following several months of slow and arduous negotiations. >click to read<
