This is a work in progress. Whatever we decide, we need to make up our minds, and fast. Carbon fuels are killing us, and killing the planet as well.
And good planets are hard to come by. If you think you can run the country on wind and solar, more power to you. This exercise has real-world application. The MW megawatt Vermont Yankee nuclear reactor was recently shut down.
Regardless, the energy generated by these reactors will have to be replaced, either by building more power plants or by importing the electricity from existing facilities.
The key question is this: What will it take to replace a reactor that delivers MW of baseload constant power with wind or solar? Org has a detailed proposal to power the entire country with renewables by Costs are offset by the increased economic activity from building and operating the plants.
Other major offsets derive from health care savings, increased productivity, lower mortality rates, reduced air pollution and global warming. But since these offsets also apply to an all-nuclear grid, they cancel themselves out.
Both systems are at the low end of the long-term cost projections for renewables. No form of energy production is, or ever has been, completely safe. Down through the centuries, countless people have been injured and killed by beasts of burden.
More were lost harvesting the wood, peat and whale oil used for cooking, heating, and lamplight. Millions have died from mining coal, and millions more from burning it. America loses 13, people a year from health complications attributed to fossil fuel pollution; China loses aboutAlthough hydroelectric power is super-green and carbon-free, we too easily forget that in the last century alone, many thousands have died from dam construction and dam failures.
Even solar energy has its casualties. In fact, more Americans have died from installing rooftop solar than have ever died from the construction or use of American nuclear power plants.
Some people did die in the early days of uranium mining, but the actual cause was inhaling the dust. Proper masks lowered the casualty rates to nearly zero. Only three people have ever died from the actual production of American atomic energy, when an experimental reactor suffered a partial meltdown in And for all the panic, paranoia, and protests about Three Mile Island, not one person was lost.
The worst dose of radiation received by the people closest to the TMI plant was equal to one half of one chest X-ray.Presently in Philadelphia, Melissa Rose has been writing and editing since She was awarded the Phillips Foundation's Young Journalist Scholarship as an undergraduate at the University of North Texas and she holds a Master of Arts degree in English from Rutgers University.
