Civil Nuclear Power Energy Renaissance Restart / Commodities / Nuclear Power

By: Richard_Mills

The nuclear renaissance, and a bull market you should be aware of, has been restarted.

State of nuclear power in the USA

The USA has 104 nuclear power reactors in 31 states. Since 2001 these plants have achieved an average capacity factor of over 90 percent, generating up to 807 billion kWh per year and account for 20 percent of total electricity generated.

Japan's Secret Nuclear Weapons Program / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: Global_Research

Peter Symonds writes: The Wall Street Journal published an article on May 1 entitled “Japan’s nuclear plan unsettles US.” It indicated concerns in Washington that the opening of a huge reprocessing plant could be used to stockpile plutonium for the future manufacture of nuclear weapons.

The Rokkasho reprocessing facility in northern Honshu can produce nine tonnes of weapons-grade plutonium annually, or enough to construct up to 2,000 bombs. While Japanese officials insist that the plutonium will be used solely to provide nuclear power, only two of the country’s 50 nuclear power reactors are currently operating.

The Big Nuclear Energy Lie / Commodities / Nuclear Power

By: DailyWealth

Matt Badiali writes: What are the Japanese doing in Uzbekistan?

For natural resource investors, it's one of the most important questions in the world. The country is a major gold producer. It also produces large amounts of natural gas, cotton, and copper. But these days, Japan has little interest in the traditional commodities Uzbekistan has to offer.

Germany's Energiewende And The End Of Nuclear Power / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: Andrew_McKillop

NUCLEAR SHOCK TREATMENT
For Ukraine and Japan, learning to do without nuclear power needed shock treatment: the 1986 Chernobyl catastrophe, and the 2011 Fukushima disaster. The combined economic cost and losses due to these "unforseen nuclear accidents" will probably exceed $500 billion over the years and the decades. Nuclear accidents are in a class apart, for long term damage capability. Above all, certainly since Fukushima they cannot be kept away from and out of public debate.

Climate Change, Nuclear Power and the Red Queen Syndrome / Commodities / Nuclear Power

By: Richard_Mills

All through human evolution we have been harnessing increasingly effective forms of energy. From human power to horse power, to wood, coal, natural gas and uranium we've been working our way up the energy efficiency ladder. In reality what we've been doing is searching for the highest energy density to make energy production more efficient.

"The release of energy from splitting a uranium atom turns out to be 2 million times greater than breaking the carbon-hydrogen bond in coal, oil or wood. Compared to all the forms of energy ever employed by humanity, nuclear power is off the scale. Wind has less than 1/10th the energy density of wood, wood half the density of coal, and coal half the density of octane. Altogether they differ by a factor of about 50. Nuclear has 2 million times the energy density of gasoline." William Tucker, Understanding E=MC2

Japan Steps Away from Nuclear Power / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: OilPrice_Com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Japan and France move away from nuclear energy, is it the endgame for nuclear proponents?

As the world slouches into the 21st century, one of the global economic realities is that more and more developing nations, much less the "First World," are competing for fossil fuel resources whose production is rising more slowly than demand.

Germany's Energiewende ,The Losers Line Up / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEuropean business news, 3 July, took a partial break from European crisis response Stability Funds,
which have no money but nicely written "forward looking" prospectuses, to look at Germany's sinking giants of postwar reconstruction and growth - the Big 4 power producer companies E.On, RWE, Vattenfall and EnBW. These are all floundering with Germany's Energiewende transition plan. RWE has the present headlines because, after spending about 1 billion euros on its Nordsee Ost wind park in the North Sea, it finds that it cannot start production because Tenne-T TSO, the local power transport (grid) operator has not built the connector to the 48-mill 295 MW windfarm 30 kilometres out to sea. http://www.spiegel.de/international/business/stress-on-the-high-seas-germany-s-wind-power-revolution-in-the-doldrums-a-805505.html

Nuclear Power Has a Bright Future / Commodities / Nuclear Power

By: The_Energy_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you asked Amir Adnani, chief executive of Uranium Energy Corp., why he was so bullish about uranium in 2007, his answer would be the same as it is today: There is not enough supply to meet demand. Investors might wonder if Fukushima has drawn the curtain on this industry, but Adnani says in this exclusive interview with The Energy Report that this is just the first act for nuclear power. Adnani is taking advantage of what he sees as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to grow his Texas-based company, snapping up properties that are now "on sale."

Poor People Will Foot The Bill For Nuclear White Elephants  / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: Submissions

Dr Gerry Wolff submits: “There is absolutely no case for subsidising nuclear power” said Dr Gerry Wolff of the Energy Fair group, responding to the recently-published draft of the Energy Bill 2012. “The proposed ‘feed-in tariff with contracts for difference’ is a blank cheque to a nuclear industry that is already heavily subsidised.”

Europe's Nuclear Exit Strategy / Politics / Nuclear Power

By: Andrew_McKillop

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt this time in April 2012 the nuclear industry has springcleaned its rhetoric and is making predictable rearguard action, claiming it isn't dead yet. What almost any honest observer will say is that just one more Fukushima type disaster will totally seal the fate of nuclear power, relegating the nuclear industry back to only the domains of weapons, medicine, engineering and research. As the Japanese government is obliged almost daily to up the estimate of costs that it and taxpayers will have to bear for the Fukushima disaster - the latest estimate is for a total of around 11 trillion yen to 2020 - Japan moves further to a probable complete exit from nuclear power. The costs were simply too high, like the risks which are perceived by public opinion as far too high.

"Beneath the Pacific Ocean's floor deep in the Japanese trench, tectonic plate boundaries slipped repeatedly, triggering one of the most severe earthquakes in recent history. The earthquake's epicenter lay off the eastern coastline of Japan near the Fukushima Prefecture. The plates' movements generated a tsunami that swiftly drove forward ranks of waves towards the earthquake-battered Japanese coast.

Nuclear plants have been reopened, and as many as 200 new plants worldwide are scheduled to come online. At the same time, uranium supply shortages loom on the horizon, making for bullish fundamentals for uranium miners. Lackey's faith in the coal sectors also burns brightly.

Why Not Thorium Fueled Nuclear Reactors Instead of Uranium? / Commodities / Nuclear Power

By: Marin_Katusa

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarin Katusa, Chief Energy Investment Strategist, Casey Research writes: The Fukushima disaster reminded us all of the dangers inherent in uranium-fueled nuclear reactors. Fresh news yesterday about Tepco's continued struggle to contain and cool the fuel rods highlights just how energetic uranium fission reactions are and how challenging to control. Of course, that level of energy is exactly why we use nuclear energy – it is incredibly efficient as a source of power, and it creates very few emissions and carries a laudable safety record to boot.

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article1950s VANITY TECH
With a terrifying sting in its tail and for more than 60 years, nuclear power has been sold as something for nothing, delivering electricity that will be cheap, clean and safe. Nuclear shills always said that, and still say that - and they have always been wrong. When a disaster happens that is so big it can't be talked down and yanked out of the media after a couple days, the nuclear shills go into quiet mode - but they always come back, like politicians saying this time things are going to change. You have to believe.
