Michel Gay: La baisse inéluctable de la production des hydrocarbures, les faiblesses structurelles des énergies intermittentes du vent et du soleil, ainsi que la volonté de diminuer les émissions de gaz à effet de serre ont ajouté une nouvelle légitimité "écologique" à la production d'électricité nucléaire.

Michel Gay: L’Agence de l’Environnement et de la Maitrise de l’Energie (ADEME), qui a publié en 2015 l'étude "Un mix électrique 100 % renouvelable en 2050 ?", aurait dû publier en même temps l’autre cas d’école «Vers 100 % d'électricité nucléaire en 2050 ?».

China will spend 22 billion yuan (US$3.3 billion) on two prototype molten salt nuclear reactors to be built in the Gobi Desert in northern China.

* Molten salt reactors can produce one thousandth of the radioactive waste of existing nuclear reactors because of deep burn. More complete conversion of the nuclear fuel.

* Molten salt reactors can have designs that are proof against nuclear meltdowns

* The chinese reactors could use thorium. China has some of the world’s largest reserves of the thorium metal.

Scott Denning, Director of Education, ESMEI, Atmospheric Science, Colorado State University: The science of Man-made Climate Change is simple to explain, serious to our way of life and solvable. We don't have to choose between progress and prosperity. Many people think: "Our well-being is based on stuff we extract from the ground." When we stop burning coal, will our descendants shiver in the dark? "We create our well-being through crativity, ingenuity, and hard work." The future is bright.
