Comment on Abe: “We Need More Nuclear Reactors!” by Anonymous:

Japanese was not in recession for 23 years. In fact, it was growing even in most partsY/&§
of the nienties.
Difference is slower growth.

And also, please, it’s not a problem of technology. Tech does go on on solar as much as nuclear (heck, probably nuclear isn’t so good because of lesser and older plants). Simple truth is… some power is not so efficient as others, in terms of bucks per wh (and bucks eventually mean, for example, acres of land covered in solar panels. Desert is good for this not only because of solar irradiation, but because it’s otherwise useless land. And… there are not many nations with enough desert to spare, especially rich countries).

Nowdays USA seem to be really ready to go on shale gas (oil tech goes on as well), and I don’t think much tears will be shed in Washington when they’ll not need to give much of a fuck about some infamous oil-exporting countries. It’s not a “last resort” card, Saudi Arabia isn’t depleted at all.

    Solar, water and wind are too dependent on randomness of weather (for storage, giant batteries and inverters are far more expensive than nuclear) and also produce less kilowatts than thermal plants.

    Within 1 month the incident happened there were already rumors about human factors. I doubted it at first as there were not much proof. But records of discussions reviewed that humans did contributed to the worsening of situation.

    A country is huge. Green energy can be used at various spots to reduce the demand. It’s the general trend and is especially important in areas having high earthquake risk. Even the US is moving towards it. The goal is not to eliminate whatever type of energy but to choose the best within a defined area, not only considering the cost.
