Four Nuclear Myths: A Commentary on Stewart Brand's Whole Earth Discipline and on Similar Writings


AUTHOR: Lovins, Amory

DOCUMENT ID: E09-09

YEAR: 2009

DOCUMENT TYPE: Journal or Magazine Article

Some nuclear-power advocates claim that wind and solar power can't provide much if any reliable power because they're not "baseload," that they use too much land, that all energy options including new nuclear build are needed to combat climate change, and that nuclear power's economics don't matter because climate change will force governments to dictate energy choices and pay for whatever is necessary. None of these claims can withstand analytic scrutiny.

DOCUMENT ID: E06-04

YEAR: 2006
