John Shanahan, civil engineer, president of Environmentalists for Nuclear - USA: Comment #2 on Bloomberg BNA article, Nuclear won't avoid climate problem, (Bobby Magill). Senator Ed Markey (D-Mass) describes challenges of “impacts of climate change on dangerous nuclear waste.” If the ideas in this article are implemented and the reasoning about catastrophic man-made climate change, etc., and dangerous nuclear waste turn out to be wrong, the consequences of going without fossil fuels, permanently disposing of hazardous nuclear waste (used nuclear fuel), and not using the approximate 99% available energy in the uranium ore stored in depleted uranium and used nuclear fuel will certainly be a disaster for humanity.

John Shanahan, civil engineer, president of Environmentalists for Nuclear - USA: Comment #1 on Bloomberg BNA article, Nuclear won't avoid climate problem, (Bobby Magill). This short article covers vast complex topics about energy from wind, solar, fossil fuels, and nuclear, catastrophic man-made global warming, man-made climate change, man-made climate disruption and man-made large rising of oceans with simple broad statements from “experts.” Some statements about the situation with the state of nuclear power in the United States are very accurate. Other statements lack scientific basis and cause serious problems in getting to the right conclusions. If the ideas in this article are followed and the logic and reasoning turns out to be wrong, the consequences of forcing the world to go without fossil fuels are dire.

Michael Shellenberger, Environmental Progress: • En Allemagne, selon les Amis de la Terre (BUND), de nouvelles éoliennes offshore pourraient « conduire à l’extinction d’espèces individuelles », y compris le marsouin, rare et menacé. • En Amérique du Nord, les populations de chauves-souris migratrices pourraient disparaître, selon les scientifiques, si l’expansion de l’énergie éolienne se poursuit. Une seule ferme solaire californienne, Ivanpah, a nécessité le massacre de centaines de tortues du désert, et tue chaque année 6 000 oiseaux en les brûlant en vol. Vous pensez peut-être que ces impacts sont minimes par rapport à d’autres menaces ? Après tout, les chats domestiques tuent entre un et quatre milliards d’oiseaux par an aux États-Unis.

World Nuclear News: This report describes the future of nuclear power around the world for the next half century. In Europe and North America there are hardly any plans to replace nuclear with new nuclear, except in France and Russia. In Asia, China clearly intends to make full use of nuclear power with their own developed best nuclear technologies. The electric power needs of modern economies are fairly predictable. To meet those needs, it is best to use the most reliable and controllable energy sources. That is what Asia is doing with fossil fuels and nuclear power. In Europe and North America, politicians and certain factions of the public are choosing very dilute wind and solar power, which are variable, unpredictable and even not available at all. This clearly will lead to strong Asian economies and weak economies in Europe and North America. Strong economies have historically plundered weak economies for land, water and resources: the Persian Empire, Greece's Alexander, Rome's European Empire, Hitler's LEBENSRAUM, European conquests of the Americas. Do oblivious self-centered idealists in Europe and North America think it will be otherwise with their elitist environmental dreams of wind and solar power, with most manufacturing being done on the other side of the world?
