    The most renewable energy source is nuclear. Using inexhaustible ocean dissolved uranium, or plentiful thorium.
    It’s the safest form of energy we have. Much more environmentally sensitive than the process of industrializing wildlands to make way for solar farms or wind turbines. Soon those will be converted into housing developments. Nuclear doesn’t use any substantial amount of land when it is built right. New Molten salt reactors don’t require a security perimeter because they cannot melt down, and they cannot be damaged by terrorism in any significant way.
    Our experience with nuclear is that it is safer than solar power. People fall off roofs installing solar power. And no one was harmed in making nuclear power, in the Western world, ever.

    100% Renewable energy is a scam put on by the Frack Gas industry, that funds Stanford’s Precourt Energy institute (look it up!) and spends $1 billion per year on PR for RE. The oil majors push RE for a reason— it is half natural (frack) gas by the time it reaches a customer. Because of intermittency getting filled in by the “reliable” toxic greenhouse gas business.

    That’s why 100% clean energy is the right goal.
    To get there we need some new design nuclear power.
    It is also stupid to shut down existing nuclear but it won’t matter as much after new designs are running.

    We should not be arguing about the 1980’s designs for nuclear. There is lots of stuff we can do after half a century of tech. See http://TerrestrialEnergy.com, ThorCon Energy, Terrapower, ARC Nuclear, New brunswick, Elysium, UltraSafe Nuclear,
    And DeepIsolation.com for waste storage.

    20 years from now, all those wind farms will be converted to more valuable real estate. No one will still want them in their backyards anymore.

    China is going to build MSR nuclear reactors, clean and safe and cheap, and if the USA doesn’t… we will buy them from China.

    I’m would like to make another more substantial donation. But I’m a bit queered out by your anti-nuclear stance. That is so 1985.
