Quite interesting. I have a few questions though. The comparison chart doesn't include any renewables, which are becoming cheaper and cheaper. I'm assuming this is because nuclear are base plants and compete more directly with coal and gas, however this typical scenario is evolving fast as well (with storage and smart grids). Second, I viewed the website on mobile so maybe I didn't see it, but what about nuclear waste and the supply of uranium. Both of these are often very carbon intensive or environmentally and socially dangerous. I'd like to have a more detailed account of this. I'm excited someone is still interested in nuclear because I think there's potential there but we need to be 100% open about the costs and benefits. Wish we had a maker here 😆

I think this is so cool. Transatomic is building new types of nuclear reactors that use molten salt (as opposed to light & heavy-water reactors used today). Molten salt reactors can run at higher temperatures & more efficiently than water-cooled reactors (which means more electricity!). 🏭🔋

What humanity really really needs is westerners to fork over uranium/plutonium access.... to countries with higher melanin counts....
Half the waste does not make this "Green tech". What´s the PH policy for misleading labels?
