TEDx Talk: Michael Shellenberger explains why nuclear power is cleaner, safer, cheaper, more reliable, and more environmentally friendly than solar power and wind power

This 18 minute TEDx Talk by Michael Shellenberger is one of the best pro-nuclear power, anti-solar power, anti-wind power arguments that I have ever heard.

He cites a huge number of statistics to show that compared to solar power and wind power, nuclear power is far better for the environment, far cleaner, far better for animals, far safer for humans, far more reliable, far cheaper, and has a far smaller environmental footprint.

    But it’s not safer than deep geothermal.

    Great video. Makes a very compelling argument in support of nuclear. I would propose if we are concerned about waste, we just build the world’s largest nuclear waste facility below the White House and Capital Hill. That way we can be absolutely certain it will be built correctly and be completely safe.
