To All:

Nuclear energy -- another interesting engineering topic.

In my opinion, nuclear energy has been out there making a significant contribution in the power generation arena.

Unfortunately, there have been a few operational disasters putting on hold the present and future role of the nuclear energy.

As we know, mankind needs more and more energy -- energy demand keeps increasing.

In addition to an increase for the power generation capacity, global warming is becoming a problem that needs to be addressed in one way or the other.

Furthermore, there has been some talk about hydrogen economy.

Presently, there is a new idea about the future role of nuclear energy. As a matter of fact, nuclear energy could help meet the demand for additional power generation with no emissions and provide initial push in hydrogen generation with a low capital cost in comparison with other options.

The bottom line is that it comes down to using a mix of the "proven" technologies that are available and feasible in order to meet the energy demand.

So I would like to find out what you think about the nuclear energy and its new proposed role and significance in the meeting the demand for additional power generation ...

Forget fission. Fusion is the new Future.


And I am convinced it is real. Good timing, too. Global cooling is about to become real, also. Real BAD.
