Are Environmentalist Stunts Obfuscating A Serious Nuclear Debate?


The Greenpeace activists who crashed a Superman-styled drone into an EDF facility near Lyon, France on July 3 pulled off the latest of several stunts designed to highlight the vulnerability of France’s ageing nuclear reactors. In a country whose energy mix is built on nuclear power, the strategy is working: the Superman incident came just before a French parliamentary report called out security “failings” at some facilities. Revelations of faulty welding at the new Flamanville reactor have since added yet more fuel to the fire.

Nuclear power looks to shrink its way to success

New mini reactor designs offer lower cost and risk than conventional technology

Everything about nuclear energy seems terrifically big: the cost, construction and decommissioning — and the fears of something going badly wrong. The future, however, may well be much smaller. Dozens of companies are working on a new generation of reactors that, they promise, can deliver nuclear power at lower cost and reduced risk.

Weekend Report- Pay Attention Moment- Time to wake up from your Summer Slumber

The Great Yellow Hope- Uranium

This is about the only sector I still feel good about as it remains undervalued, oversold and in an uptrend.  It is still coming off of its bottom, but positive fundamentals are fast catching up with this group.

Why Nuclear Energy Is Critical For Russia

As the world’s largest natural gas and oil producer and exporter, Russia plays an important role in setting the global geopolitical agenda. The recent agreement with OPEC is evidence of Moscow’s ability to set prices. However, in another field of energy production Russia captures an even more dominant position: nuclear technology.

Dr. Spencer on a rising uranium market?

June 26, 2018 – “The uptick has been in the last couple of weeks. There is a certain excitement in the market. It started late last year with Cameco and the Kazaks taking almost 15% of world production off the market. Since then there have been a couple of other transactions that have taken about 30% of uranium supply off the market. The market is just starting to react. For the first time we are starting to see an uptick in the uranium price that I think is going to be sustainable.” States Dr. Richard Spencer, CEO, President and Director of U3O8 Corp. (TSX: UWE | OTCQB: UWEFF), in an interview with InvestorIntel Corp. CEO Tracy Weslosky.

Rediscovering the promise of nuclear power

ENGLAND – At the 2015 U.N. Climate Change Conference in Paris, world leaders at last seemed to recognize the reality of climate change. But the response they are pursuing is fundamentally flawed, given its dependence on “renewable energy sources” — such as solar, hydro and wind power, as well as biofuels — that actually damage nature. Ironically, the world’s best bet to achieve the Paris agreement’s goals is to rely on an energy source that is often demonized: nuclear power.

Water, wind and solar power cannot reliably provide energy on the scale required for a modern economy.

Attention knitters: Researchers harvest uranium from the sea with a yarn “net”

An adsorbent chemical is ready for another round of testing.

Take some regular old acrylic knitting yarn, modify it with a special kind of adsorbent chemical, and wave it around in the ocean. After some time, the yarn will pick up enough molecules of uranium that grams of yellowcake, the precursor to fuel used in nuclear reactors, can be made.

It’s only a matter of time before this hated metal makes a comeback

 

In 2007, uranium was the bitcoin of its day.

Penny stocks turned into billion-dollar companies as the world rushed to invest in what seemed to be the only solution to a looming energy crisis.

Then, in 2007, the bubble burst. The uranium price has fallen every year since. Most of the companies that sprung up no longer exist. Uranium became loathed by almost all and sundry.

If Nuclear Power Is So Safe, Why Are We So Afraid Of It?

Study after study in top scientific journals find that nuclear power plants are far and away the safest way to make reliable electricity. Why then are we so afraid of them?

Many believe it’s because of the historic association of nuclear plants with nuclear weapons. But during the first two decades of nuclear power, people were more excited than afraid of it.
