    Pilgrim nuclear plant in Plymouth needs to be shut down – because they are running out of space to “store” the radioactive waste. There IS NO SOLUTION to this!

    Nuclear power is the stupidest way we can think of to boil water. Why are we being stupid?

    Innovations in all
    areas of sustainable energy supply and energy consumption are among the most
    effective tools we have to fight the negative consequences of climate change.
    Existing technologies allow us to substantially reduce greenhouse gases in
    the U.S. by increasing energy efficiency and saving energy, leading to a
    sustainable use of resources. Intelligent climate solutions with clean energy
    provide ecological benefits as well as economic advantages.

    What’s with all these intermittent nuke plants? We’re going to have to go to the expense of rolling out more renewables now to back them up.

      You know they don’t reduce CO2 emissions at all because they all have to be backed up.
