Yeah I did notice that. can't quite grasp it.Kilkis wrote:I agree that it would pay to be sceptical about the costs quoted for nuclear in the article I linked. Everybody has some sort of bias. This is a pro-nuclear paper therefore it is probably going to present nuclear in the best possible light. I didn't reference it to show nuclear costs however. I referenced it to show wind costs compared to coal and gas. Since it is pro-nuclear I assume it would present the others as poorly as it can. In reality it presents wind as worse than coal and better than gas, i.e. not the complete waste of space that others tend to suggest.
Interestingly, one of the articles referenced in the paper you linked, Scooby, claims that reserves of conventional energy sources in the USA are infinite and will never run out.
But this only applies to about 35% of the population of China so is a bit misleading, is it not?George wrote:Here in Britain, we look across the "pond" with a superior smugness at the role of lobbyists in American politics, but it is exactly what we have all over the world now. everything we read is someones agenda. Trying to sort the wheat from the chaff becomes increasingly complex.
The only country I am aware of who has actually adopted a true policy to benefit mankind is of course China with their attempt to restrain population growth which is the biggest threat of all.
Collectively, we lambasted them for it - how dare they try to know better than us.
Meantime we shall retain our air of superiority whilst we continue to mete out aid to nuclear enabled countries who cannot feed their own people and promote the use of hybrid vehicles as we demolish 90% of the south American Atlantic forest to grow soya and sugar beet to run our cars......
