The Good, the Bad, and the Nonsensical Approach to Nuclear
In January 2017, two actions took place in New York that could significantly affect the energy system and policy of the state. The first was the signing on January 9th of an agreement to close the Indian Point nuclear […]
California currently uses 32% renewable power with a mandate for 100 percent renewables by 2045. Capital cost for utility scale solar is about $1.00 per watt and falling with zero fuel costs.
New nukes are several times as expensive plus fuel plus waste treatment with ever-rising costs.
We do […]
Fukushima prefecture in Japan is the site of a 2011 tsunami and nuclear accident after a major earthquake off the east coast of Japan. Despite the very minor release of radiation into the atmosphere, the disaster has had profound effects on the lives of the local citizens. Dr. Davies will share field notes and invite […]
