Re: McCain: no global warming action until the left supports nuclear It's nice to see McCain continue to support nuclear power so definitively, and I am glad to see the author puts CO2 emissions on the same scale as nuclear

US Nuclear Power Performance According to data recently published by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), US nuclear plants produced 789,017,000 MWh of electricity last year.
Radiation Release at WIPP Details are still rather sketchy, but there appears to have been some sort of radiation release from the WIPP transuranic waste repository in New Mexico. See
Germany's Pursuit For More Coal We know that Germany's huge build-out of renewable solar and wind power capacity is not enough to make up for the shut down of half of their nuclear power
Re: Pro-Nuclear Candidate Wins In Tokyo Leslie Corrice has a commentary on his Hiroshima Syndrome blog dated February 10 and entitled, "Japan's Press fails to make nuclear energy a major election
Pro-Nuclear Candidate Wins In Tokyo In the recent election for governor of Tokyo, the pro-nuclear power candidate has won. This is a boost for the prime minister's plans to restart some of the
Re: Fukushima #4 fuel movement resumes It is interesting that report attributes the root cause to the inexperience and negligence of the crane operator. That would not fly at most places today. An
Re: Exelon's 2013 Performance Even with a 94% capacity factor, Exelon may still decide to close two plants by the end of the year. The Clinton and Quad Cities plants (three reactors total)

Re: Fukushima #4 fuel movement resumes I found the following article from NuclearStreet from a month ago. According to this, the damage happened "from plant operations years earlier".
Re: Fukushima #4 fuel movement resumes It looks to me like typical damage from moving the refueling crane sideways before the bundle is fully out. As far as one can tell, it's only damage to the

Re: Fukushima #4 fuel movement resumes The number of fuel assemblies moved is up to 264. One interesting new development is that evidently some of the assemblies have some damage to them. See link
Re: Ocean Nuclear Synfuel Production French shipbuilder DCNS has a concept for underwater nuclear plants to be placed on the sea bottom. See article linked below from World-Nuclear News.
Re: Ocean Nuclear Synfuel Production Nuclear synfuel production at sea could provide all of the fuel needed for both rich and poor nations by simply shipping methanol to their ports. Marcel
Re: Ocean Nuclear Synfuel Production Since small floating nuclear reactors have to be tugged away to a central coastal location to be periodically refueled, they would be pretty easy to be
Re: Ocean Nuclear Synfuel Production Of course the petroleum industry receives the most government subsidies of any energy industry in the US. which dwarfs Federal bucks for the nuclear industry
Exelon's 2013 Performance Exelon's fleet of 17 nuclear power reactors operated at a capacity factor of 94.1% in 2013.
Re: Ocean Nuclear Synfuel Production It's not a good idea. Offshore wind is bad enough. It's not easy to service power plants even a few kilometers from land (cost, transportation of personnel,
Solar is up to 0.2% in the US In 2008, according to EIA, the U.S. got 864 million kilowatthoursùor 0.02 percent--of its 4,119,388 million kilowatthours of electricity from solar thermal
Re: Ocean Nuclear Synfuel Production I am not unalterably opposed to nuclear power. In spite of its clear problems, it still seems to be safer than its alternatives. However, I'm not completely
Re: Ocean Nuclear Synfuel Production If it's economically feasible and the lives of the general populace of the world is improved, I'm all for it. I don't see a problem with the latter.
Ocean Nuclear Synfuel Production ...what if we deployed some floating nuclear reactors far out to sea-- far away from the coastal environments of any town or city and the licensing headaches
