    Are these tiny, ‘inherently safe’ nuclear reactors the path to a carbon-free future?

    But it doesn't. Why?
  1.  
    What about a nuclear car?

    That's the ticket--thorium fission-powered cars.

    Seems to have been discussed at some point....by a scam artist.

    Lucky the French have plenty of nuclear power to supply the Germans.

    Lucky the Germans have plenty of renewables to be a net-exporter of energy.

    Watching the Chernobyl series has altered my feelings about fission power quite considerably. I recommend a course of Chernobyl to anyone still rooting for nooks.

    So you prefer fracking fossil fuels?

    What scares me most about nukes, is that it is no longer the best scientists and engineers design them. They have to do with the ones that could not get a job in the industries that are working on the technology and solutions of the future.

    Quite the bully aren't you? Yes absolutely. Fracking all the way. And I'm in favour of big smoky coal plants too, with blind pit ponies down the coal mines to haul the stuff. Aren't you?

    I am in favour of safe small nuclear reactors you can have buried sixty foot under your garden, that can be turned on and off at will when the wind ain't a glowing and the sun has gone bye, bye.


    Of course buried under your garden first to demonstrate how safe they are.
