The Bond pieces states: "...Nuclear power generation thus creates
over 8 tons / GWh of power that is
delivered - much more than renewable energy sources."
Rod is correct...we should be so lucky with other types of
hydrocarbon fuel. No one will will any arguments on CO2 emissions
against nukes. It's a stupid way of arguing. And, actually, it's also
true that there are types of "renewable" like bio-mass, wood chip
recyling, corn-to-alcohol that produces tons of CO2, more than
anything comparable to nuclear in the example given by Bond.
The dangers of nuclear energy: in it's mining, generation and waste
(not to mention potential accidents) are what needs to be discussed
and examined (and re-examined) to have a serious analysis.
