Not Uranium fission. Which produces Plutonium, the most toxic substance known to man – which it sprays over the surrounding continent every 25 years. Remember Windscale, 3 Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukishima.
Fukishima would not have lead to the early deaths of 29 million Japanese is 90% of he safety recommendations after Fukishima has been done.
We now live in a time of global terror. To stop the greatest terrorist incident ever, all existing nuclear plants need to be reinforced, to with stand a collision of a microlight packed with high explosives, hitting the nuclear core building.
Nuclear power will not, as this would cost too much! How many 100s of million of people need to die, before they make their existing plants secure?
This would increase the cost of a new plant from 18 billion, to 34 billion. Beyond the reach of even Chinese bankers.
Then the plant would need insurance of 100 billion. No insurance above 1 billion is available. Then to properly render the waste safe – rather than just frond storing it – to pass on the cost to our great, great grandchildren; would increase nuclear electricity to 2.50 – compared with just 10 cents for burning Fossil Fuels.
National governments should not to commit to over priced power for 25 years. But the lack of valid insurance will ensure the plant can never start up. So the Chinese have paid to build it – but it can never start.
So e.g. the UK government will never have to buy the over priced power.
Take Hinckley B – please, the UK does not want it. It had planning consent until 1990. As a joke EDF got its own engineers to extend planning. No. A new planning application can only be made by engineers with no nuclear connection. EDF did not bother.
So it has been operating for 26 years with no valid insurance. So the Power Station regulator had the legal imperative to issue immediate stop orders in 1986.
It did not. So the regulators and plant managers get the same legal tariff. 10 years in jail and a 10 million fine for each year of illegal operation.
That is 3 billion, and 3 millennia in jail: shared by ALL the plant and EDF managers.
And the plant must be bulldozed into the ground. Any Hinckley C would be a green field development, subject to a 100 million Royal Commission. Question 1 'Do you have sufficient insurance'
'Panning denied'. Even the Queen obeys planning. Sizewell B was constructed by the UK government, so as Tony Blair privatised it – it ceased to be legal. So should have been stopped 2004. And again, totally dismantled, and converted into farm land.
EDF have aught to circumvent planning – which is a crime. There is no legal planning extension on Hickey Point. So the plant must STOP. 2004. And AL the plant mangers will die in jail.
The flouting of panning is enough on its own, to grantee Hinckley C will never get an operating licence. Hence PDF sold British nuclear to the Chinese.
They remained as part of the consortium, which again grantees planning will be turned down. There is no way that Hinckley C will ever be allowed.
And no way Theresa May or any PM can ever consent to it. Margaret Thatcher exceeded her power – Sizewell was never correctly insured.
There is a simpler way. Lightening turns oxygen and water into helium, light, X-ray, sound and heat. It does Molecular Nuclear Fusion
The H ions bond with the free eletrons, to form neutrons. These bond with O ions, to cause tehmt to under go repeated nuclear fission, into 4 hydrogens. The hydrogen ions then fissiopn into heat, light, sound and X-rays.
And all the physics was sorted out in the 1950s. 64 times more heat than hyper toxic nuclear fission from enriched uranium. No solid waste. And free power.
U fission always said nuclear fusion would blow them away. Every 3 minutes around the Earth, a lightening strike does Molecular Nuclear Fusion
2 H2O+TU+O2->He+O3+E2+X-ray He, light and X-rays are only prodcued by nuclear fission, or here nuslear fusion of H ions. Every 3 minutes around the Earth. For free. Set up by heavy rain, that iself does Molecular Nuclear Fusion.
The 1.5kn partial steam plasma releases 2.5x1030W. More power than man has every released – including via atomic bombs.
The Natis stumpled on it, as they exploded hgih explosive in water. And greated a massive hole in Poland. Full of shocked Quartz: only produced by the most violet reactions. That vapourised all the 'scientists' – thank God.
So they had nuclear fusion, before the Americans had made the atomic bomb.
So a 50x1cm steam plasma tube will produce 1.2MW of heat, that will generate 200kW of power. Enough for 300 power users.
And the system will cost only $2,000, rather than 34 billion for a toxic uranium fission plant. No toxic waste. Not even any life enhancing CO2.
Man's daily additional 0,00004% CO2 has increaseed crop yields by 15 since the indistrial reviolution.
Thought there is still only a pre-industrial 2 parts per million left in the afternoon air. Man has increased the growing day by 10 seconds. No possible weather effect.
Hence the climate warmed until 1995, and will next warm in 2023. Totally naturally, with a static 2ppm CO2 in the air.
200Ppm CO2 in the global air? Biological non sense. Ask a High School biology teacher. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump know this sceince. Yet stil lthety talk about Climate Change, paid fiction from nuclear power.
