Nuclear is not a solution

Tags:   Nuclear is not a solution

Web Site:   http://www.stopclimatechange.net

Globally about one third of the greenhouse gases are caused by the production of electricity. In 2004 the worldwide 442 nuclear reactors provided only 16% of the electricity, 6% of the commercial primary energy and 2.5% of the final energy in the world. Nuclear power worldwide generates less electricity than its decentralized no- and low-carbon competitors (renewables and fossil-fueled combined heat and power). In 2004 these rivals added nearly three times as much output as nuclear power added.

Moreover, production of nuclear electricity is not carbon free, as often being claimed.

Apart from the risks (accidents, nuclear weapons, international terrorism, nuclear waste), nuclear energy is not the cheapest possibility to reduce greenhouse gas emissions nor is it the cleanest
