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

TODAY. NuScam – the sad little canary that’s scared of a tweet

NuScale, maker of the pioneering (supposedly little) Small Modular Nuclear Reactors, must have had a little hissy fit at my beautiful picture of NuScale’s SMR plunging down a bottomless money hole.

I mean, that is pretty much what is in fact happening. But I can understand that NuScale was not all that thrilled with my artwork – they had it removed from Twitter, explaining that –

This person has taken and modified our rendering without our permission and in a derogatory fashion. “

Well, that’s true. Unfortunately sometimes “derogatory” = “true”.

And “true” can be painful. NuScale is seen as the canary in the coal mine for SMRs,

NuScale and the Utah Municipal Power Systems, its partner in an SMR project planned for Idaho, announced early in January, that the target price for the power from their proposed modular reactor had risen by 53% from $58/MWh to $89/MWh.

So NuScale has a lot more to be sad about than just my little picture, and somebody else’s tweet of it. The reality is that the business prospects for all those hyped-up small nuclear reactors are looking very gloomy indeed.

NuScale, Rolls Royce and the rest of them might soon have to face up to the fact that SMRs can survive only as tax-payer funded toys for the military – nuclear submarines, military stations on the moon, whatever new follies that the macho boys think up.

    • Musk might need to be careful of US. There are thousands, perhaps millions, who think he’s a fraud. He’ll be exposed for the disgraceful creature that he is.

    This is what will happens, when there are bank runs in other major banks. Where did the money go from the banks.

    To crypto currency. To empty office fronts for phoney enterprizes, like musks boring company. He borrows money against boring company that has no new contracts. Worthless company.
    Musk Gets 20 billion a year, to put up satellites, that fall out of orbit. There is the free social media cos, like twitter that he borrowed for, and paid 44 billion for. Tesla stock has lost 50 percent of its value, since people have found out, what musk is really about.
