I love this piece: reactors that *eat* nuclear waste, and where the law of gravity kicks in to shut down a reactor in a power failure.
Hi all, I normally diagnose a fast build out of nuclear power, eventually scaling this up to GenIV breeder reactors like the Integral Fast Reactor or eventually the ultimate waste-eating reactor, the Molten Salt Reactor. (The IFR is a GREAT and … Continue reading
Straight from my email inbox comes this latest news from Michael Shellenberger of Environmental Progress:- “BRACE FOR IMPACT.” The looming insolvency of Toshiba has set off a chain reaction of events that threatens the existence of nuclear power in the … Continue reading
