Michael Shellenberger, Founder-President of Environmental Progress: Global demand for electricity is set to rise 70% over the next 25 years. Technological advances mean that new nuclear reactor components can increasingly be mass-manufactured in factories and shipped around the world for reassembly on site. What’s at stake is a market worth $500 to $740 billion over the next decade and hundreds of thousands of high-skill and high-wage jobs. Such an effort will require new regulations. It makes no sense to regulate jet planes the same way we do propeller planes, yet that is precisely how the federal government treats new nuclear reactor types. This new Atoms for Peace effort could inspire and unite the country and the world around something almost everyone wants: cheap, clean energy.
A wonderful video about 50 years of progress in Korea with nuclear energy and nuclear science. Now Korea is helping other countries. In this case, Jordan. Jordan is making tremendous and very necessary progress establishing an excellent program in nuclear energy and nuclear science at Jordan University of Science & Technology, JUST, and building the Jordan Research and Training Reactor, JRTR, at JUST in Irbid. Nuclear engineering students from Jordan have worked with Go Nuclear, Inc. and Environmentalists for Nuclear - USA since 2011. Two nuclear engineering students, Mutaz Shannag and Lujain Khalayleh, are on our International Board of Advisors.
Michel Gay: Le temps est venu de développer largement dans le monde une nouvelle source d’énergie: (a) sûre et moins polluante que les combustibles fossiles, (b) ne libérant pas de gaz carbonique, (c) ne gaspillant pas les bases chimiques dont nos descendants auront besoin, (d) peu encombrante et puissante, (e) disponible et abondante.
Michel Gay: On 15 December 2016 in Marseille (FRANCE), Michel Gay was honored to receive the Yves Chelet Prize awarded by the French Nuclear Energy Society (SFEN). The Yves Chelet Prize rewards "the author of objective and educational media works for the dissemination and promotion of nuclear science and technology".
Dhruv Dharamshi: This is an award winning student paper at the World Nuclear University, Nuclear Olympiad, 2016. This paper addresses using nuclear energy in the fight against climate change. Dr. Theodore Rockwell pointed out that nuclear energy will be very important for humanity for climate change from all sources. Many scientists consider the main sources of climate change to be the sun and other natural sources. This is an outstanding student paper. It advocates employing nuclear energy for many serious challenges for humanity, nature and the environment, not just man-made carbon dioxide.
