Sorry, this article turned me off right away.
We know what politics that this is slanted too.
In this article and I quote below ...
"respond to the urgent need to cut carbon emissions"
Why may you ask?
We have 100% carbon free electricity right now being produced for DECADES in the USA, but ignorance has shelved new construction in the USA and a lot of the world but not China, China has 60 SIXTY new plants planned to come online over the next 10 years. We need to get our act together and stop bowing to others and stick to facts.
Nuclear Power has always been the answer until solar can be logically produced and produced with less harmful chemicals. Correct, solar panel waste produces 300% more toxic waste then nuclear.
Just discussing and educating, as many people who read this forum never knew this.
Nuclear Power 100% Carbon Free, available for decades now.
Solar Power 100% Carbon Free but takes a massive, massive amount of more land to produce then nuclear and is 300% more toxic then nuclear.
So why aren't we replacing the power plants with nuclear while Solar develops? Because lack of leadership and the press has everyone afraid of the boogymen, we should have been doing this for decades, the massive amount of USA carbon reductions would have been enormous if any one cares.
Darn, I should have been President decades ago, I would have Nuclear Power plants pumping out power all over the USA to the point that the rest of the world would look to us as an example of innovation for Carbon Free Electricity.
