Rolls Royce Small Modular Reactor. Energy Revolution or delusional distraction?


Just Have a Think 366K subscribers

Nuclear power has been around for decades but it's never achieved the global dominance of the energy sector that its creators envisioned. Now, as the world moves away from fossil fuels, the nuclear debate is firmly back in focus and Small Modular Reactors are being touted as the only zero carbon baseload solution to our climate crisis. Rolls Royce say they'll have their design operational within ten years. Can they do it, and do we want it?

Agelbert COMMENT:
I agree 100% that SMRs are a costly distraction. That said, I do believe that SMRs can be useful to human civilization. I will explain below, but the critical issue before us is cleaning up our biosphere by powering our civilization EXCLUSIVELY with Renewable Energy technologies that produce no pollution whatsoever in the process of providing energy. SMRs, like Hydrocarbon fuels, BOTH pollute when they provide energy, so they BOTH must play no role whatsoever in our civilization's energy providing infrastructure.

🦉 However, off planet SMRs have great potential to help our exploration of space. IF, and that is a rather large IF, SMRs can be 🚀 launched safely on journeys to other planets and/or asteroids to provide reliable 💫 uninterrupted power to a manned, or remote controlled, base for many decades, it would definitely help in the exploration of space and exploitation of rare mineral resources in the solar system, as well as aiding in the scientific 🧐 study of our off planet neighbors.

🤖 The moon is a great place for SMRs; Mars too.

SMRs on Earth ☠️? 📢 fuggedaboutit!
