In a new study, James Hansen pushes nuclear power as saving more lives than it has harmed
The whole piece here.
How will this sit with Hansen’s alarmist friends? Not well, I assume, as Al Gore — the patron saint of drowning polar bears — has listed nuclear power in his latest books in a section titled “False Solutions” and writes:
There is still a distinct possibility that the research and development of a new generation of smaller and hopefully safer reactors may yet play a significant role in the world’s energy future. We should know by 2030.
But, then again, Al Gore is not known for knowing the actual science of climate science, or else he would have long ago invested his green bucks in a company that could have utilized the Earth’s internal million-degree temperatures.
