Why are the Global Warming Alarmists Deniers of Nuclear Power?
No emissions, unlike even natural gas power plants. Japan has 8, tiny Switzerland has 6, how many in the US? All ancient and inefficient, like the ONE in California. I would like to add one thing about terrorism. Nuclear reactor containment walls are strong enough to withstand a jet plane traveling 650 mph which only leave a small dent in the concrete. Three Mile Island did leak a tiny amount of radioactive gas, but less than the natural amount of radon which is underneath many homes. No injury to plants, animals, humans from Pennsylvania, or any other US reactor. I can't answer for the inept Russians.

We aren't. At least, not all of us are. I think nuclear power is the best option available to us to combat the energy crisis. I really wish folks would stop making ridiculous generalizations about large and diverse groups of people of which they know precisely nothing.

Algore, who used to like Nuke power now says it will not increase significantly. I think he is averse now because Nuke will do nothing for his Carbon trading operations and bussiness. He has already told The EU what will happen here in the US after the next election and its basically about forcing the US into mandatory... More

I think alarmist should be used for someone who worries about something that hasn't been proved to be a real problem. virtually all credible scientists, that aren't working for the oil companies, are agreed that global warming is real and will be a global problem in the near future... More

All 'global warming alarmists' are different, this 'alarmist' accepts the neccesity for them, most 'alarmists' do, In fact, traditionally it has nothing to do with 'alarmists'. It was more the preserve of environmentalists before global warming was so high on the agenda... More

I see where you're coming from, and environmental alarmists or people in general don't want another scare like Three-Mile-Island or Chernobyl, or the one we had in PA. There were too many scares that currently the administration does not want nuclear. FYI, France has even more like 25 nuclear power plants .They had to... More

Who says they are? IPCC 2001 called nuclear power "an effective GHG mitigation option". http://www.grida.no/climate/ipcc_tar/wg3/128.htm#3842 IPCC 2007 uses almost exactly the same language: http://www.mnp.nl/ipcc/pages_media/FAR4docs/final%20pdfs%20of%20chapters%20WGIII/IPCC%20WGIII_chapter%204_final.pdf

It does not really matter what the alarmists think or skeptics think about nuclear energy. When the US government deregulated the electrical power generation industry, it sealed nuclear energies fate. Now it is up to corporations to take the initiative to build nuclear power plants, and since power plants that utilize... More
Answered By: Tomcat - 10/10/2007
Nuclear power is one of the most expensive forms of power available. Not the production of the power, but the building of the plants, running them and decommissioning them. Only the fuel is cheap, and that is rising. Mining and refining the fuel is worse for the environment than coal mining. When the... More
