The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

A hopeless pursuit? National efforts to promote small modular nuclear reactors and revive nuclear power. 

This article examines national efforts
in three countries, Canada, the UK, and the United States, which are
pursuing SMRs vigorously and where the government has funded their
development generously.

We compare the different strategies and foci of
these national strategies, analyzing the various forms of support offered
by the separate agencies of the government, and the private companies that
are trying to develop SMRs.

We also offer an overview of the different
types of reactor technologies being pursued in these different countries.

Following these, we outline the main challenge confronting SMR
technologies: their ability to generate electricity in an economically
competitive manner, highlighting the problems resulting from economies of
scale being lost. By examining the experience so far, we find that even
designs based on well-tested technology cannot be deployed till after 2030
and the more radical designs might never be.

  1. The queen in the UK has numerous investments in nuclear. She likes small reactors. So do the Tory crooks.
    The queen pushed to hard and caused windscale. She is partly responsible for nuclear testing in Australia.
    Montebello Islands, Emu Field and Maralinga. Some of those tests used Cobalt 60 seeded bombs. How barbaric! Like the green run at Hanford! The queen in the UK has numerous investments in nuclear. She likes small reactors. So do the Tory crooks.

    The queen wants to give andrew millions to protect him from pedophile charges sad world
    They knew what they were doing!
