Energy Outlook on Long-Term Planning

From Energy Outlook:

We face huge, complex problems across the entire energy spectrum, and although they will lend themselves to patient solutions, there are no quick or cheap fixes. Oil isn't a bad place to start, but this can't be done in a vacuum, without understanding and accounting for all the knock-on effects. Otherwise, we risk making the broader picture worse, particularly in the area of greenhouse gas emissions. Whether our long-term personal transportation will be based on plug-in hybrids or hydrogen fuel cells, we require a comprehensive strategy for the natural gas, renewables, coal and nuclear power that will generate the electricity and hydrogen upon which they will depend.

One necessary gobal plan to limit the nuclear waste materials being created for mankind use of nuclear power plants is to ask the USA to resrrict the on going use of the PWR reactor to supplying nucleat fuel material to the miltary and then the balance of power for civilan use,to be generated by HWR's- Candu type heavy water moderated, natural uranium fuel reactor,. an enviormental friendly combination. The USA military should not be allowed to demand that all reactors be PWR's and keep on creating nuclear waste and dumping it the deserts etc of the USA>John Dyke
