I responded to one of Musk's tweets the other day that in order to support EV's it would take more nuclear plants. I just read one of his tweets today calling to start up nuclear plants and build more.

Countries should be increasing nuclear power generation! It is insane from a national security standpoint & bad for the environment to shut them down.

Excellent suggestion, he needs to cut you some stocks for the tip!


I'm not keen on going electric, needing a charge station, etc, especially here in "roll the dice for who gets electricity today" land

I find it funny that 20 years ago, nuclear energy was baaaad. The green people were 1000% against it, but..... now that those same green people realize that there will never be enough solar and wind generated electricity to meet their needs, they have decided that nuclear energy is green.

All they are is a bunch of dumbasses!

similar thing with shopping bags - 40-50 years ago paper bags were bad, using up too many trees, chemical polution, etc. Now plastic is bad, let's use a renewable resource.

I agree 100% with Musk. We should get 100% of our base load from nuclear power. People wring their hands about nuclear power but ignore the environmental costs of all other forms of electricity production. A modern nuclear plant is to an old 50’s-60’s nuclear plant as a model T ford is to a brand new 2022 car. A modern nuclear power plant is extremely safe and clean. I lived just a few miles from a coal fired plant for a few years and the ash falling on my truck was heck on the paint. I wonder what else the ash was hurting ? I’m not a anthropomorphic climate change believer but pollution is a real problem and nuclear power is the cleanest and most reliable power source available. We mine the least , transport the least , have the highest reliability with nuclear power.
As for electric cars I think they’re an unworkable substitute for petroleum powered vehicles.

There still is no safe way to store used rods used in the reactors

Nothing wrong with coal or natural gas generation either.

We've been storing them safely for fifty or sixty years now. Zero impact on human health or the environment. The total volume encompassed by all the spent fuel ever generated is so inconsequential you have to wonder why people aren't embarrassed to complain about it.

Molten Salt Reactors would be the way to go. Smaller, less expensive and much safer.

Exactly right RufusG. We could reduce the spent fuel waste even more if used reprocessed mix oxides. The proposed storage in the salt deposits was a good safe plan and should be implemented.

This might be an even better option but it’s not really viable at this point. We should be building plants now ! Fossil fuels should be used for transportation.

Respond to another one and state that "in order to support EV's, it would take daily carnal activity between my wife and me". Hey! It's worth a shot.

Why not use all forms of energy all at the same time? Just what you need, whatever.
