1/12: Will the UK #integratedreview of security & #foreignpolicy really make a difference? It was billed as a radical reset after #Brexit & does contain important innovations. But there are many areas of continuity. A thread, now we’ve had time to digest..
2/12: #GlobalBritain hyperbole was inevitable. A “science superpower”, a “#softpower superpower”, “an independent country free to tread our own path”. But to be fair, beneath the froth lies serious thought to frame international & domestic priorities.
3/12: The #geopolitical analysis is sober. A tougher, more competitive world where China looms large & old certainties no longer apply. Yet the core prescription is familiar. British foreign policy with global reach, defending liberal democratic values, rule of law & trade.

ICYMI because of the launch of Biden's $2tr Infrastructure Plan, the other big news this week was the JRC report on nuclear power which gave it the green light under Do No Significant Harm, clearing it for inclusion in the EU Sustainable Finance Taxonomy: ec.europa.eu/info/sites/inf…
It's not that nuclear power is a climate silver bullet, as silly ecomodernist bros endlessly and boringly claim. In fact, the current generation of nuclear plants has been tested pretty much to economic disruption, as I wrote in this piece in July 2019.
about.bnef.com/blog/liebreich…
The point is that nuclear power is still the largest single producer of near zero-carbon electricity in the EU, responsible for over 25% of all power. At the very least, prolonging the life of existing, safe nuclear plants must be considered a sustainable activity.

Good interview of @micheleflournoy on "The US-#China Strategic Calculus."

I just want to highlight three points she made.

1/4
chinatalk.substack.com/p/michele-flou…
1. During the Cold War, "There were people whose only job was to really understand how the Soviet leadership thought...We have to do a much better job of really understanding [#China's] calculus and how to influence it."

It's critical: we don't understand China well enough.

2/4
2. "How do we continue to reduce the number and importance of #nuclear weapons in strategy...but prevent rising powers...from ever thinking about using them?"

Also says "It's not just about nuclear weapons anymore."

It's key: the "stability question" is now more complex.

What we need is real security - my statement on today's announcement 👇
Real security will be provided by working co-operatively internationally to tackle the major challenges of our time - from climate catastrophe to global poverty, to the international refugee
crisis to health pandemics.
In contrast to this, today’s defence and security review shows Boris Johnson’s #Tories are intent on an increasingly #militaristic and #belligerent agenda.
Lifting the cap on the number of #Trident nuclear warheads the UK can stockpile
by more than 40% to 260 is totally wrong.
It is in conflict with our legal obligations under the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and is at odds with the new #UN Treaty to ban all nuclear weapons globally. It also runs counter to the example set by President Biden

Joining the administration is @genebsperling "to run point" on implementation of the #AmericanRescuePlan, announces @PressSec.
"The president finds them troubling," says @PressSec of the continuing allegations of sexual harassment against @NYGovCuomo, adding that the state attorney general's investigation of the governor "needs to be quick and thorough."
"We certainly do," replies @PressSec when asked if @POTUS believes his administration has a handle on what's happening at the southern US border.

Empezamos. Hace ya una década de #Fukushima. El 11 de marzo de 2011, un terremoto de magnitud 9 desató un #tsunami que arrasó cientos de kilómetros de la costa nororiental de #Japón dejando 19.729 fallecidos y 2.559 desaparecidos y golpeando a la central nuclear de Fukushima 1.
A las 14:46 horas de aquel viernes, el seísmo sacudió al nordeste de #Japón y se sintió en #Tokio. Con una duración de 6 minutos, fue el más potente que ha sufrido el país y el 4º del mundo desde 1900, tras los de Chile en 1960 (9,5), Alaska en 1964 (9,2) e Índico en 2004 (9,1).
Esa misma tarde, tomé el primer vuelo a #Japón, pero me quedé varado en Seúl porque habían cerrado los dos aeropuertos de #Tokio. Al día siguiente, tras pasar por Osaka, aterricé en #Fukushima cuando se producía la primera explosión en la central. Empezaba el desabastecimiento.

11 March 2021 marks the 10th anniversary of the #Fukushima nuclear accident. Due to Fukushima, Germany reinstated in 2011 the nuclear phase-out decided in 2000, after a short 10-month-period of abandoning it - and the #Energiewende became political consensus. A thread on FAQs: /1
To start: Where do we currently stand in the #nuclear phase-out in DE? Since 2000, 13 nuclear power plants have been shut down, 11 of which since 2011. Six more will follow by the end of 2022. So far, we have achieved a good half of the nuclear phase-out. /2
Now to the FAQs:
(1) How has the share of nuclear power changed since 2011? The share of #nuclear power in the #electricity mix in DE has halved from 22% (2010) to 11% (2020), while the share of #renewables has more than doubled from 17% (2010) to a full 45% (2020). /3

🇮🇱The @IDF will expand the scope of intelligence on the nuclear.
Defense minister @gantzbe ordered an expansion of the intelligence gathering. Acc to security sources, the aim is to expose violations of the #nuclear agreement away from the eyes of the @AIEAWorld inspectors. 1/4
PM @netanyahu divided the activity into a strategic level, which will examine developments between the #US and #Iran, and into two professional levels headed by senior members of the defense establishment. 2/4
A similar request was made by PM #Netanyahu to #Mossad chief, Yossi Cohen, arguing that the purpose of expanding the scope pf intelligence, would be for intelligence and operational needs against #Iran in the future. 3/4

"For the EU hydro is projected to increase with global warming and nuclear to decrease...increased #hydro in northern Europe and a decline in hydropower and #nuclear power in southern Europe due to lower water availability for direct production and cooling of river-based plants..
"In northern Europe substitution effects, i.e. increasing availability of cheaper #hydropower, could result in lower production costs, while they would increase in southern Europe."
"#Wind and #solar production are not affected significantly by global warming. Improved cooling technologies have the potential to strongly reduce the negative effects of water scarcity, particularly for nuclear plants in southern Europe."

2/ Bottom line: New #Uranium mines needed, especially in back half of this decade after idled mines restarted. #U3O8 price tailwinds are depleted reserves, lack of investment, increasingly restricted supply, mounting uncertainty over timely arrival & cost of new mined supply../3
3/ #Uranium Price headwinds are reduced #nuclear demand from potential early reactor retirements, lower costs for (re)emerging mines, stalled utility buying due to market uncertainties, competition from other energy sources. Utility concerns continue to delay procurement .../4

#Iran's Deputy FM Araghchi: The body of evidence shows that #Biden team has not been able to reach a conclusion & an alternative policy on the #JCPOA... They do not seem to have been able to overcome their internal challenges and reach a single united policy on the #nuclear deal.
#Iran's Deputy FM Araghchi: #Europe was unable to compensate the withdrawal of the US from the #JCPOA... The survival of the nuclear deal has been due to Iran's policies in the past 4 years. Just in one case Europeans stood against the US in the UNSC.
#Iran's Deputy FM Araghchi: Implementation of the Additional Protocol will be stopped... As a result, there will be a new situation... @IAEAOrg Director General @RafaelMGrossi asked us to visit Iran & his visit is aimed at establishing a new order in Iran & IAEA cooperation.

@JesseJenkins @ERCOT_ISO spokesman says 34 GW went offline. "Majority" were thermal—#gas, #coal, #nuclear. "We don't know exactly why, but ... we'll figure out why that happened."
@JesseJenkins @ERCOT_ISO I'm awaiting @ERCOT_ISO clarification on precisely which generators/capacity went out or are still out, and how #wind and #solar capacity is factored into or compared as basis of total outage. 34 GW is a lot—ERCOT total installed capacity at 2020-end was ~77.2 GW.
@ERCOT_ISO @ERCOT_ISO: "Most of those generators that went offline ... last night, were either—there a few additional wind generators that went offline during the night—but the majority of them were thermal generators, like generation fueled by gas, coal, or nuclear"

As most of people who follow my tweets know, I'm very bullish on #uranium, and I think a LT bull market has begun.

That said, I want to remind that we're still at the very beginning of the journey, and that it is very important to acknowledge that there will be local tops and big retracements ahead of us on this journey. Depending on the co, -20% even -50% retraces will happen for sure.

The main catalyst on the sector for mining companies is still staying put as the spot/lt contract pricing is neglecting the fundamental supply distruption.

.#Germanium was discovered #OnThisDay 135 years ago!
Clemens Winkler came upon this chemical element in 1886 as he was analysing the composition of argyrodite, a rare mineral found at a silver mine in Germany.
He named his new discovery after the Latin word ‘Germania’, the namesake of Germany. Fifteen years before, Dmitri Mendeleev had predicted its existence based on the gap between silicon and tin, which he noted in his newly created Periodic Table of Elements.
Highly sensitive to ionizing radiation like gamma & #Xrays, Ge plays an imptt role in the IAEA. One of the tools our inspectors use to verify enrichment levels of uranium is a detector w/ Ge crystals. These, when cooled to -140°C, can detect gamma radiation released from uranium.
