Alex Alexiev, Chairman of the Center for Balkan and Black Sea Studies: There are at least three problems with renewable energy (wind and solar), which are not surmountable. First, it is intermittent i.e. not reliable. Secondly, renewable energy depends on government subsidies and is not feasible without them. Third, the efficiency of solar and wind tech, despite being heavily subsidized, is rapidly approaching the limits of physics, which means that there are no great efficiency improvements to be expected.The renewable energy emperor has no clothes and it won’t be long before everyone can see it.
Wade Allison, Emeritus Professor of Physics, Keble College, Oxford University, UK: This article discusses the importance of plentiful, reliable energy for humanity. It includes the topic of carbon dioxide from fossil fuels reportedly going to cause serious climate change problems. This leads to recommendations to dramatically cut back on fossil fuels and quickly switch to nuclear. Several things may stand in the way: 1) Nature. It may remain the primary cause of climate change. Any energy source we select may have little influence on future climate change. If it gets colder, we will need lots of energy from fossil fuels and nuclear. 2) The world will not be ready for a long time to implement nuclear like Canada, France and the USA did. Bad government, corruption, egotism, weak economies, inferior education will stand in the way. 3) When planning globally, it is essential to have global solutions that work.
Bill Gates' commitment to plentiful nuclear energy for the world (Peter Kotecki, Business Insider) USofA01.Dec.2018
Bill Gates has a clear vision of a better world through working together for peace, prosperity, plentiful energy, good education, strong economies and respect for the environment. This requires advanced nuclear power technologies which he is spending billions of his hard earned fortune on to develop. Will the politicians and regulators stop holding nuclear back?
Vagisha Nidhi, Lecturer, Department of Nuclear Science & Technology, Mody University of Science & Technology, India: This PowerPoint Presentation is for education about things related to nuclear energy, nuclear medicine and nuclear science in India.
