Do we need nuclear energy to stop climate change? More and more voices from science, environmental activists and the press have been saying so in recent years - but this comes as a shock to those who are fighting against nuclear energy and the problems that come with it. So who is right? Well - it is complicated.

  • Saving electricity for later use isn't worth it at all. Way too much money and resources would be wasted on storage units and facilities. Nuclear is the best way to go, fusion isn't happening anytime soon and we already have great ideas on how to make nuclear clean and safe. If only we wanted, we could completely stop producing electricity with fossil fuels in just a matter of years. But that's not gonna happen because it requires us to invest money which we find more valuable than a clean planet only because we haven't really yet experienced the disasters of global warming on our own skin. Seeing others suffer in less developed parts of the world doesn't quite hit us the same way to start investing until we feel it all ourselves. And by then, it could be too late to do anything without major wars and suffering over resources that could either destroy us completely and turn humanity into a failed species or delay our progress by thousands of years. I believe that's just the natural way of things which all civilizations in the universe face themselves with.

  • Thank you for confronting the hard truths associated with the shift from fossil fuels, its not done enough. It's falsely sold that's renewables are magic and can do no wrong. It's not talked about enough that the rapid shift can have severe consequences in standard of living. It's an incrediblely hard problem to solve, our energy.

  • My problem is not with nuclear per se. We are pretty good at designing reactors these days. In areas where using renewables is difficult so not good for wind, hydro, geothermal, solar nuclear might have a place. HOWEVER. There is a high amount of regulatory capture that enables cutting corners on safety. Most of the time this will probably be okay but on occasion it will almost literally blow up in our faces. Mistrust of humans to responsibly operate nuke plants.

  • The real problem with nuclear isn't the tech, but the people pushing for it, and the way it's extracted. For one, nuclear fuels are mined and processed by giant corporate players, who would stand to benefit from a swap to nuclear. They can monopolize the fuel source and charge for it whatever they want, with little regard for any economic or moral principle beyond short term gain. You can easily see this in how Rio Tinto leaves the areas in which it mines ecologically devastated and rife with civil conflict. Nuclear fuels are extracted at the price of human lives. As for who ends up using these fuels? You're gonna love this one: Critters like the Koch Brother(s)! They've been shilling and lobbying for nuclear, which, again, can be monopolized, for decades, the same way they've been shilling and lobbying for fossil fuels. Does anyone in their right mind really thing that new nuclear reactors will be well-regulated when the self-same corporate parasites that gave us the climate crisis are in charge?! Which brings us to, storage, intermittency and grid stability. These are talking points routinely flung around by corporate lobbyists as to why renewables are very, very bad. Thing is, those selfsame points apply to fossil fuel and nuclear plants. Those have malfunctions. Or supply chain shortages. Or other countless problems that cause them to shut down. And just about every time it's renewable sources that pick up the slack when nuclear and fossil fuels kick the bucket. Remember Texas? Which is run on both nuclear and fossil fuel, with only a barely-double-digit energy contribution from renewables? Well, when the recent blizzard hit, Texas' renewables outperformed all other sources in terms of reliability and proportional output, exceeding the power grid operators' own projections.

    • @Mike Haynes See, this is where you've been suckered in by libertarian nonsense. Energy is kept reliable and low-cost by governments, not corporations. Governments, either state or local, use the power they have to bargain with power producers and negotiate low prices for the consumer, admittedly offsetting those prices with corporate welfare. Energy production is massively state-subsidized, but price-regulated. The moment you liberalize the market and allow corporations and "competition" to decide the price, it skyrockets. Look at Germany a couple decades ago. Look at Australia this last decade. Look at Romania these past few years. At people getting four digit power bills in Texas. Corporate ghouls will drive the prices as high as they can because it's not a commodity people can go without. And speaking of Texas, as for "reliability", Texas officials **sued to keep ERCOT deregulated** while subsidizing it with taxpayer money. It allowed corporations there to do whatever the balls they wanted with minimal standards while benefiting from corporate welfare. So what did they do? They killed people. And it's not manslaughter, it's murder. They knew full well the damage a flash freeze could do to their equipment after the one ten years ago, and decided that profits are more valuable than human lives. And it's these murderous corporate parasites you're eager to entrust the new power industry to? The same ones that got us into this mess? The ones that, pinky-promise, won't make uranium mines that poison a whole region (anymore) nor have reactors that spew waste at the drop of a hat? Please, stop being so naive.

  • 3:42 Yeah, that sounds all well and good but since Ringhals 1 and 2 was shut down in December 2020 and 2019 respectively we had to import electricity generated by fossil fuel and fire up the auxiliary generators that run on diesel to you know, meet demand due to it being winter. So that power plant runs at most at half the capacity now.

If you didnt know, bats are incredibly important for fruiting plants to pollinate (and other plants). Solar (depending where you get them but most use the cheap solar bc cheap) have very toxic chemicals that can seriously damage things like the water table and general soil health if they are damaged and leak those chemicals. I dont even need to explain why that is bad. Nuclear is becoming and has been the best and we should be using it. Its just better. But yeah its very hard to transition and it needs to be slow.

By current trend either the fossil fuels run out or global warming becomes too dangerous ; then humanity will shift towards it. We humans are really the most intelligent+foolish species on earth.

  • Only opinion I have is this. JUST DO IT! Renewable energy and nuclear energy cannot do the jobs alone. And while it's true nuclear energy is responsible for nightmares from the past, that's only because the nuclear energy was weaponized. If it was instead used to push fossil fuels out of the picture we'd already see a vast change in our climates. The truth is this, we best take action, and we best do it soon. Because climate change is not a good thing, and can lead to global extinction. Our governments and our society need to be persuaded that nuclear and renewable energy sources are the future, and it does not matter if they like it or not. Fossil fuels are doing nothing but harming the planet. And we risk the wrath of mother nature the longer we use it.
