Dr David Lowry corrects the false argument about nuclear power being “carbon free”


David Lowry’s Blog 28th Dec 2019, David Lowry letter to FT. Your correspondent Dr John Law from the Clean Energy Revolution organization makes a very similar erroneous argument as he did three months ago in an earlier letter.Both repeat the false arguments promoting presumed low carbon emission benefits of nuclear power deployment made by Dr James E. Hansen and his colleagues in another recent letter you published.
Dr Hansen is a brilliant analyst of the atmospheric climate change problem, but his suggested solution of more nuclear power is demonstrably misguided/ Both old nuclear power plants as mentioned by Dr Law, and new nuclear plants advocated by Prof Hansen require uranium fuel.
Uranium is energy intensive in its mining, milling, enrichment and fuel
fabrication, all carbon emission-rich processes.
