In a recent article titled “The New Battle Plan for the Planet’s Climate Crisis,” Bill McKibben, a radical climate activist and founder of 350.org, argued Earth is rapidly warming and immediate action must be taken to reduce human-caused greenhouse-gas emissions. To do so, McKibben advocates a massive build-out of wind and solar power, but he never mentions one of the most obvious and efficient energy sources available: nuclear.

Nuclear power providers,
In January, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the Advanced Nuclear Technology Act of 2017, HR 590, that is intended “to foster civilian research and development of advanced nuclear energy technologies and enhance the licensing and commercial deployment of such technologies.”

LeadCold and Essel Group ME have announced an agreement for a $200 million (USD) investment to build uranium-fueled power sources.
The National Development and Reform Commission and the National Energy Administration have officially issued the 13th Five-Year Plan for energy development, China Securities Journal reported Tuesday.
NuScale Power is a company with a mission – to build the first small modular nuclear reactor in America. As of now, they are certainly on track.
Last week, NuScale announced their submission of the first design certification application for any SMR in the United States to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. They did all the legwork and got all their ducks in a row before submitting, something that is critical for success with the NRC.
Nuclear power plants are typically hulking structures made using billions of dollars of concrete and steel. But one company thinks that by going smaller, they could actually make nuclear power more affordable.
