Climate change was a topic of discussion among the leaders of the world’s biggest industrialized countries at the G8 summit meeting in Japan in July. That talk was spurred by the CEOs of about 100 leading companies who demanded action to stem climate change. They recommended ways to tackle global warming, submitting their ideas to the G8.

Nuclear energy was included on their list of solutions. Nuclear power is again being seen in a positive light, and not only because it could play a vital role in reducing carbon emissions and arresting climate change.

We Could Power All 50 States With Wind, Solar and Hydro

^"The big oil, gas, coal and nuclear companies claim that we need those energy sources in order to power America.
Good news: it’s a myth.
Mark Diesendorf – Associate Professor and Deputy Director, Institute of Environmental Studies, UNSW at the University of New South Wales – notes:
The deniers and scoffers repeatedly utter the simplistic myth that renewable energy is intermittent and therefore cannot generate base-load (that is, 24-hour) power.
Detailed computer simulations, backed up with actual experience with wind power overseas, show that the scoffers are wrong. Several countries, including Australia with its huge renewable energy resources, could make the necessary transition to an electricity generation system comprising 100 per cent renewable energy over a few decades.
Fukushima’s Catastrophic Aftermath: The Dangers of Worldwide Nuclear Radiation
“Should the public discover the true health cost(s) of nuclear pollution, a cry would rise from all parts of the world and people would refuse to cooperate passively with their own death.”
“Claiming nuclear production of energy is ‘clean,’” said Bertell,“is like dieting but stuffing yourself with food between meals.”

Whatever they decide on, it will probably be expensive. Then where are the jobs going to come from?
