Peter Fairley, IEEE: The most advanced commercial reactor designs from Europe and the United States just delivered their first megawatt-hours of electricity within one day of each other in China. This is great for China. The United States is in the process of acquiescing to anti-nuclear organizations and their politicians by closing nuclear plants with no plans to replace them with more nuclear. Where will this lead?

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.
