The Difference Between a Hydrogen Bomb and an Atom Bomb

The atom bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were terribly destructive. Hydrogen bombs are over 3,000 times as powerful. Here’s why.

The lessons of Chernobyl and Fukushima: fear of radiation is more harmful to public health than ionising radiation itself

At this rate its going to take 363 years to transform the energy system. In fact we would have to add the equivalent of a new green nuclear plant every day to achieve the Paris Agreement objectives by Solar Energy Panels, Solar Panels, Nuclear Energy, Nuclear Power, Advantages Of Solar Energy, Solar Panel System, Sustainable Energy, Greenhouse Gases, Renewable Energy

Grid-Scale Storage of Renewable Energy: The Impossible Dream

The utopian ambition for variable renewable energy is to convert it into uniform firm capacity using energy storage. Here we present an analysis of actual UK wind and solar generation for the whole…

Roadmap to nowhere: the myth of powering the nation with renewables

A 100% renewable energy grid would be huge expensively and highly unreliable, argue Mike Conley and Tim Maloney in a new book. The way forward should be based on nuclear energy.

Thorium reactors may dispose of enormous amounts of weapons-grade plutonium

Scientists from the School of Nuclear Science & Engineering of Tomsk Polytechnic University are developing a technology for the creation of high-temperature, low-power reactors with thorium fuel. The scientists propose to burn weapons-grade plutonium in these units, converting it into power and thermal energy. Thermal energy generated at thorium reactors may be used in hydrogen industrial production and for desalinating water. The results of the study were published in Annals of Nuclear…

Despite two unexpected outages, the nuclear power plant near Richland, WA generated a record billion kWhrs of electricity in edging out its previous record of billion kWhs in Nuclear Energy, Nuclear Power, South San Francisco, Cloud Computing, Ux Design, Washington State, Clouds, Science, Plants

Nuclear Power Provides A Whole Lot More Than Just Energy

Like all nuclear power plants, the nuclear plant near Richland, WA provides a significant economic boon to the region, providing over 9 billion kWhs of carbon-free electricity at-cost, $690 million in economic output and supporting 4,000 jobs/year, all while continuing to break production records.

A (medium-length) primer on energy, greenhouse gas, intermittency, and nuclear

Thanks entirely to the efforts of local climate-related organizations in Seattle, I've now spoken at a handful of book stores, breweries, universities, and even Town Hall on climate and energy. Last week, I was honored to be on one such panel at a brewery in Ballard alongside Univ. of Washington oceanographer LuAnne Thompson and Governor...
