Forum: Nuclear Power Can Mitigate Climate Change (Dr. Michael Mallory)

The growth in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is already having significant climatic impacts. Stabilization of the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will require a world wide reduction of 70% from the present level of emissions. Conservation, wind and solar energy cannot meet this challenge. Adequate energy storage technology does not exist to provide power when the wind is not blowing and the sun is not shining. Only Nuclear Power can satisfy our “base load” requirements without adding carbon to the air.  The sooner we implement this solution, the less horrific the world of our grandchildren will be. The Fukushima disaster highlights the need to do it right.  Dr. Michael Mallory (author of "Our Improbable Universe") presents.
