<big>25-Year Study of Nuclear vs Renewables Says One Is Clearly Better at Cutting Emissions</big>
Via Science Alert (2020)
''Based on [https://www.nature.com/articles/s41560-020-00696-3 an analysis of 123 countries over a quarter of a century], the adoption of nuclear power did not achieve the significant reduction in national carbon emissions that renewables did – and in some developing nations, nuclear programmes actually pushed carbon emissions higher.''
''The study also finds that nuclear power and renewable power don't mix well when they're tried together: they tend to crowd each other out, locking in energy infrastructure that's specific to their mode of power production.''
''Given nuclear isn't exactly zero carbon, it risks setting nations on a path of relatively higher emissions than if they went straight to renewables.''
''"The evidence clearly points to nuclear being the least effective of the two broad carbon emissions abatement strategies, and coupled with its tendency not to co-exist well with its renewable alternative, this raises serious doubts about the wisdom of prioritising investment in nuclear over renewable energy," says Benjamin Sovacool, a professor of energy policy at the University of Sussex in the UK. "Countries planning large-scale investments in new nuclear power are risking suppression of greater climate benefits from alternative renewable energy investments."''

''Bill Gates sees nuclear energy as a potential solution to lowering carbon-dioxide emissions around the world, and he has spent the past decade funding new ways to produce the energy in a safe, affordable way.''
''About 10 years ago, Gates cofounded a company called TerraPower to build new kinds of nuclear reactors.''
''TerraPower is developing a line of reactors that use a molten-chloride coolant, drawing on a decades-old, but still unused, invention to lower costs and reduce waste.''
''The most common reactors use light (or regular) water as a coolant...''
