#MIT STUDY FINDS NUCLEAR ENERGY TO BE ESSENTIAL IN REDUCING POLLUTION

MIT STUDY FINDS NUCLEAR ENERGY TO BE ESSENTIAL IN REDUCING POLLUTION A report by MIT found battling climate change would be more costly without growth in the nuclear energy industry. Struggling from rising costs and competition from cheaper energy sources, nuclear plants would need more supportive government policies, the study found. The Trump administration is … Continue reading #MIT STUDY FINDS NUCLEAR ENERGY TO BE ESSENTIAL IN REDUCING POLLUTION

#MIT Energy Initiative study reports on the future of nuclear energy

MIT Energy Initiative study reports on the future of nuclear energy How can the world achieve the deep carbon emissions reductions that are necessary to slow or reverse the impacts of climate change? The authors of a new MIT study say that unless nuclear energy is meaningfully incorporated into the global mix of low-carbon energy … Continue reading #MIT Energy Initiative study reports on the future of nuclear energy

“Should the U.S. bail out failing nuclear and wind energy producers?”

“Should the U.S. bail out failing nuclear and wind energy producers?” The key to ample supplies of energy resources rests with which are sustainable and which are not. While oil and gas may be abundant now, that does not mean these fossil fuels will be all that available in the future. Wind energy, of course, … Continue reading “Should the U.S. bail out failing nuclear and wind energy producers?”
