Nuclear Power, to Tide Us Over

To the Editor:

Re “Good News From Diablo Canyon” (editorial, June 27):

You seem to believe that intermittent wind and solar can power America more cleanly than nuclear power. This is not the case. Wind and solar arrays cover vast amounts of territory, often destroying pristine wilderness areas that were home to many animal and plant species. The energy provided to the grid is weak and intermittent.

Base-load energy — energy that can be supplied around the clock — is necessary to keep electricity continuously flowing in our homes and factories and hospitals. Today, that means burning coal and natural gas and running nuclear plants. Fossil fuels must be reduced and eventually abandoned for cleaner and safer power. The only course is to back up intermittent energy from renewables with clean nuclear power.

Nuclear plants are capable of running for decades. Yes, repairs and replacements are required from time to time, as is the case with any energy provider. But Diablo Canyon and Indian Point can keep running far into the future.

If you enjoy having the lights on so that the editorial board can go to work every day, you can thank Indian Point for providing a considerable amount of electricity to New York City and its government buildings and subway system.

Imagine for a moment if you had to wait for a sunny or windy day to get New York running again.
