... Reduction Act was signed into law. Like the ITT crew discussed in previous episodes, it has nothing to do with inflation and everything to do with transitioning our country to unreliable energy. They ask the question “Why does the left rejectNuclear power?” Also, the World Economic Forum, the biggest advocates of The Great Reset, seem to be scared of us. The ITT crew speculates as to why that is.

...tory. US and global impacts on scenery, habitats, wildlife, and air and water quality would be devastating.
Thankfully there is a second nuclear option. If Team Biden-Harris is determined to eliminate fossil fuels, it could do more to promotenuclear power. So could Africa – and Europe, Asia and the rest of the world. Nuclear technologies are advancing rapidly, and modern nuclear power plant designs are vastly superior to (and less expensive than) any built previously.
Generation 3 and 4 plant...

California’s big challenge is not an environmental way of replacing its last nuclear power plant at Diablo Canyon destined for closure in 2024, but how to stop fueling the growth of poverty and homelessness. The bigger problem that will thrive in perpetuity, is the growing homelessness caused by continuously increasing the cost of electricity onto the less fortunate.
With California already having the highest cost of electricity and fuels in the country, the wealthy and middle class have more ...

From the study:
[The] loss of zero emission generation from the retirement of four nuclear power plants in Illinois would result in the following cumulative health-related impacts and costs over a ten-year period:
Between 1,200 to almost 2,700 premature deaths;
Over 30,000 additional asthma attacks and other respiratory symptoms leading to limited daily activities; • Almost 140,000 work loss days;
$10 to $24 billion ($1 to $2.4 billion per year) in monetized damages due to increased air...

Several cities in and bordering Utah have formed a coalition to purchase nuclear power from a small modular reactor being planned at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL), triggering the next phase in its development.
The coalition, called the Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS), has agreed to purchase more than 150 megawatts of electricity from INL’s project.
That amounts to enough electricity to power more than 150,000 homes. With the purchase agreement in place, INL will now focu...

When drug companies try to sell you a particular cure for what ails you, the television ads typically consist of 10 seconds of saying how good the drug is and 20 seconds of disclaimers and warnings about possible negative side effects. If only renewable energy companies were that honest!
To my great annoyance and disgust, a power company in Texas promises the state’s electricity users can choose a plan that delivers electricity 24 hours a day powered by the sun. Solar power.
