I've been away for a bit so can't help notice the global clean technology race that is now playing out in real times - and how this is affecting thinking/politics in UK

So apologies it's a thread alert 🧵1/11
For those fresh to this, the US Inflation Reduction Act is offering big subsidies to companies investing in (broadly defined) clean technology in USA, with benefits extending to Canada/Mexico

Which has impacted VW decision on battery factory…
The EU is also cobbling together a response be (amongst other things) making state aid clearance easier for certain investments, meaning UK is potentially a bit stranded

Which is leading to warnings like this…

“The US nuclear power industry gets up to 20% of its enriched #uranium from #Russia… France imports 15%. Framatome, which is owned by state-backed nuclear power operator, EDF, signed a cooperation agreement with #Rosatom in December 2021, two months before Russia’s invasion…”🤔
“The #Czech Republic’s energy company, CEZ, has signed contracts with Pennsylvania-based Westinghouse Electric Company and the #French company Framatome to supply fuel assemblies for its [#nuclear] plant in Temelin.”🤔 #sanctions #competition
“In #Finland, Fennovoima, an energy company, terminated a… project with #Rosatom to build a #nuclear reactor. Another company, Fortum, has hired Westinghouse to design, license and supply a new fuel type for its plant in Loviisa, Finland, after its current contracts expire.”🤔

“In five EU countries, every reactor — 18 in total — was built by #Russia. In addition, two more are scheduled to start operating soon in #Slovakia, and two are under construction in #Hungary, cementing partnerships with #Rosatom far into the future.”🤔 #sanctions #Ukraine
“… in countries where support for #Russia’s gov’t has held up, #Rosatom’s one-stop shopping and financing remain enticing. Russian-built reactors can be found in #China, #India#Iran#Armenia & #Belarus. Construction has begun on #Turkey’s first #nuclear power plant…”🤔
#Russia’s tightest grip is on the market for nuclear fuel. It controls 38% of the world’s #uranium conversion & 46% of the uranium enrichment capacity — essential steps in producing usable fuel. ‘That’s equal to all of #OPEC put together in terms of market share and power’…”🤔

Pleased to finally announce the North American release of our documentary, #NuclearNow, in theaters on April 28th. It took - off and on - nearly 3 years to pull together. This is a pressing global issue, and our goal was always to show it in as many countries as possible. ImageImageImage
I’m excited that the team at @abramorama is our domestic distributor on #NuclearNow, and @mediawanrights our international sales company; @giant_pictures is handling digital and streaming platforms; @rocofilms is handling educational sales. ImageImageImage
Additionally, @Participant, an avatar in producing films with a social and #environmental impact (#InconvenientTruth, #Citizenfour), has come onboard with @thinkfilmimpact to share the important message of #NuclearNow with audiences across the world. ImageImageImage

1/9 The economic top-institute @DIW_Berlin in Germany brought out a new study “Expansion #nuclear power without technical and economic basis”.… @CKemfert
A little thread about some unsurprising, but for some maybe remarkable findings. Image
2/9 Unsurprising is the conclusion that #nuclear has priced itself out of the market. Construction costs of current generation III+ would have to be reduced with 2/3 in order to maintain the global 10% market share in power production. But those costs are still increasing.
3/9 #SMRs of the light-water type would need production units of several thousands (per design!) to break even their disadvantage of scale, and that would need global harmonisation of #nuclear regulation. Dreams, dreams…

Nukes and #iran, what could be done to stop that (by #USA or #Israel)?
With a high chance of a kinetic outcome to the Iran #nuclear ambitions, lets see what could happen.

Allow me to boringly present the results of armchair-ing and sim using @CommandDevTeam (long thread!) :…
@CommandDevTeam Lets understand the criteria for mission accomplished. I assume the following:
a) Nuclear Material Stocks are split between two hardened and well defended Fuel Enrichment Plants (FEP)
b) These two are assumed to be the hardened underground facilites at #Natanz and #Fordow
@CommandDevTeam Natanz is located at 33°43′30″N 51°43′30″E and hardened, underground and strongly defended by Anti Air Artillery (AAA) and Surface to Air Missles (SAM).

A short thread about why windturbines are useless.

Denmark has a huge capacity of wind-energy compared to our country size. A few weeks ago a big storm went over Denmark, making the wind-turbines produce way over 100% of Denmarks electricity needs.

This pic is a actual…. Image
Screenshot of our countrys energy-situation at the time.

The entire countrys electricity consumption(3) is 4,7GW. Wind produces(2) 5,3GW.

We are exporting electricity to all our neighbouring countries that day.

But here is the funny part. Our big coal/biomasse powerplants(1) Are running at full steam, producing 1GW.

Why Are coal/biomasse powerplants running, while our wind produces way over 100% of our electricity need, you might ask?

Its because the Electrical grid…

Again on #nuclear power:

I don't believe a major nuclear renaissance is in the cards unless states step in much more forcefully than they have so far.

But nuclear energy could make an important contribution towards sustainability, and should be supported.
One of the most insane policies of the last few decades have been the premature closures of operational nuclear power plants. Any environmentalist should oppose such policies until it is clear that fossil fuels and destructive bioenergy use are dead, dead, dead.
Once we get rid of fossil fuels and obtain both energy and raw materials sustainably, I have no problems shutting down nuclear power if that is what people want and what science warrants.

But until then, keep the plants running.

🇨🇳🇮🇷⚡️ Chinese President Xi Jinping met with Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi in Beijing to discuss cooperation on infrastructure projects and Iran's nuclear program.
#china #iran #beijing #trade #infrastructure #nuclear #usa
Chinese state media, however, linked the meeting to the confrontation between China and the US, and both leaders expressed a rejection of the US-dominated world order.
Xi called for a "quick and proper resolution" of the Iranian nuclear issue and reiterated China's commitment to the negotiations to renew the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, from which the US withdrew in 2018.

1/ Energy Fuels $UUUU closed the sale of Alta Mesa today for $120M ($60M cash + $60M conv. note). We now believe our current #uranium & #RareEarths plans are fully-funded thru 2024, including Energy Fuels' investing in 4 mines to boost uranium production.…
2/ You may have missed it, but $UUUU also resumed #uranium production in Q4-2022. 162,000 lbs. of U3O8, or over 90% of US production. We're hiring/investing at our mines/mill to boost production & we plan to keep our position as the #1 US #uranium miner. #nuclear #carbonfree
3/ Today's sale also provides the CAPEX needed to install 'light' #rareerths separation at our mill in #Utah. We plan to be in production of refined #NdPr oxide by the end of this year or early next. In high demand by #ElectricVehicles, #RenewableEnergy & #defense companies.

Some further observations, calculations, and sources that led me to my conclusion:

#nuclear power stalled in the 1980s due to cheap fossil fuels and cost overruns caused mainly by the industry itself, not by nefarious environmentalists.

And: how to save nuclear power?

As a preface, I've campaigned for nuclear power since 2010. I've co-written two pretty popular books arguing the case for nuclear energy and even demonstrated in Paris.

Here's a thorium aria Eric G. Meyer originally performed in Paris metro: 2/
Let's first take a look at how we can know the environmentalists weren't the key cause, as many claim but few have bothered to study in detail?

To figure out the truth from the allegations, we need some numbers. 3/
