John Shanahan is a civil engineer and past president of Go Nuclear, Inc. and Environmentalists for Nuclear - USA: The debate on catastrophic man-made global warming involves many aspects of physics and chemistry for the atmosphere, oceans, land and all aspects of life for animals, insects and humans. It is complicated and elaborate. Dr. Edwin Berry has taken a physics-based systems approach to form a relatively simple analysis of carbon dioxide from fossil fuels added to the atmosphere. His conclusion is that this additional CO2 does not play a significant role in global warming. This article looks at a simple chemical equation for the role of CO2 in the atmosphere. It shows how important carbon dioxide is for many aspects of life on Earth. Get rid of atmospheric CO2 and life will end. Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. It is essential to life. Love CO2 and nature.
Kimberly Pierceall, writer for The Virginian-Pilot: The utility, Dominion Energy, told federal regulators in 2015 that it intended to keep the plant open through at least 2053, and on Tuesday, it officially applied for another 20-year extension with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The utility has said it also plans to seek a 20-year extension for a second nuclear plant, the North Anna Power Station in Louisa County, east of Charlottesville. The plant employs about 915 people who earn an average salary of $90,200.
John Shanahan, civil engineer, President of Environmentalists for Nuclear - USA: Who does not like plants, animals, people and nature? Where do we come from? Through all the processes of life, we come mostly from carbon dioxide in the air and rain water. Here are some answers, some photos of life and some questions about the future.
Radiation and the value of human life (James Conca - author, Jerry Cuttler, John Dale Dunn - comments) USofA Canada24.Jul.2018
James Conca, Ph.D. Earth and environmental sciences. Jerry Cuttler, D.Sc. Nuclear science and engineering, John Dale Dunn, MD, JD: LNT assumes, in contrast to almost all data on living organisms, that any radiation is bad and there is no threshold of radioactivity below which there is no risk, even Earth background radiation levels. Following ALARA means that we should protect everyone from all radiation, making doses as low as we possibly can, even if it costs billions.
