Isn't this interesting. CO2 levels have dropped under Trump and after climate change conspiracy theorists said Trump was dooming the planet after pulling out of the climate change accords that would have ruined our economy.

Can we get a Nobel prize for Trump now? Obama got one for future achievements and Trump just saved the environment.

The decline in U.S. carbon emissions was due to a number of factors, the study found, including growth in the use of renewables, the liberalization of fracking with the consequent increase in clean-burning natural gas, and America’s continued high use of clean nuclear energy, which supplies about 20 percent of U.S. energy needs.


All of those factors were already taking place even before he took office,

The coal industry still on its deathbed has probably helped to.

We need more nuclear power. I am sick of having coal plants where I live and want a nice clean nuclear plant with 90% reusable fuel.

Basically the same as what your saying HAHA this happened so it must be because of this!

cold fusion would be nice, but I don't believe we're at that stage of tech drop off just yet. but I did run across this YouTube channel today and found a lot of interesting watches and found this was as good as any to drop this off https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qZN2jt2cCU4 I haven't had a chance to view them all, but there are a lot of interesting things to view. but, it's amazing how facts are these days. so yeah, things are changing, and they are unable to hide the facts anymore, which is making them angry and toxic. one cannot delete data they do not agree with, that's not science, that's called something else entirely.

Rujikin, this is silly. No, CO2 emissions didn't go up due to Trump (though there's still plenty of time before we see how his policies affect things long-term), but there certainly isn't any reason to claim they went down because of anything he did.

Nuclear power is hardly clean, take a look at Hanford and the clean up there as a prime example and then look up the Diablo canyon power plant which is sitting on a major fault line, yup Fukashima 2.0. So no it isn't clean plus it cost a hell of a lot of power just to get it up and running that you have to get from somewhere else. Also the fuel isn't reusable you have to store it somewhere after using it so that it slowly cooks down on it's half life Yucca mountain is where we are storing our waster, can't use it for anything so it just sits there.

If you want clean you want wind and solar or hydro. But then you need a better transmission system to get power form those sites to the cities. Which folks are working on. Solar and wind also allows you to build out smart microgrids like Alaska is doing and we should be doing in Puerto Rico.

Plus there is a bunch or tech in development on the nano scale that could lead to so really interesting power systems that are all microgrids. Think infrared power conversion all your windows generate power and run your house. Zero emissions from this tech or nearly zero just the creation cost initially once you get a plant up and running that uses this to power itself then it is zero.


Also the policies that are creating this decline were not Trumps but Obama's so thank you Obama.

Its clear you are completely uneducated when it comes to nuclear power. Seriously go out and learn how nuclear power works before you try to deny basic facts/physics.

I fail to see how nuclear power is to blame for people building a nuclear power plant on a fault line. The smart thing to do would be to build another nuclear power plant off the fault line the decommission the plant on a fault line, replacing it with the new one. Build it using the newer types of nuclear plants so it can both generate more power and be safer.

Let me ask you this: Do you even know the differences between the early generation nuclear power plants that were built all over the USA and modern nuclear power plants? Can you answer such a simple question?

Nuclear fuel can be reprocessed as long as its radioactive because the radioactivity is what generates the heat. We do not need to wait for its half-life to expire in any place but a nuclear power plant. 90% of nuclear waste is reusreusable and the other 10% is just highly ionized elements below the normal radioactive elements that need time to stabilize, also got gold in there.

Hydro destroys river ecosystems, wind is unreliable and kills huge numbers of birds. Anything photonic based is only useful during the day and typically they require rare earths which are highly polluting to manufacture. Everything has its drawbacks nothing is perfect.

CO2 only went down cause that orange windbag was sucking it up on the media channels....sheesh that idiot should get off of twitter or what ever the hell social media channel he uses. Just looks like a moron with all those personal reactions, and I live in the USA

Correct while some materials that can be reused the rest goes in the ground, but this does not make it clean or safe, again I will point of Hanford Fukashima and Chernobyl and Three Mile island are just some examples of failures in these systems where large areas are rendered uninhabitable. Many of these plants are what is considered modern Like the one in Oak Harbor Ohio which thankfully didn't kill anyone when they found it's failures.

New plants aren't being built, main reason for this is we haven't been building new plants why because no one want one of these death traps in their backyards. So what do you do with the waste which is going to be around for generation? what do you do when one of them fails like the one in Oak Harbor and it goes critical? There are safer forms of power out there hydro works fine so does solar and wind. Thorium reactors would be fine they are for the most part safer and cleaner then Uranium and Plutonium reactors. But those two aren't needed for power production.

Uses of nuclear waster U233 used for making nuclear weapons we don't need more of these. DPU Depleted Uranium again used for making weapons and it appears to have a whole bunch or health risks the military hasn't been willing to talk about. X-ray machine we used refined martials to get these working. Materials like those used for x-ray machines and u233 aren't actual waste they are made for those jobs but if that is what you are thinking of the u233 we don't need and the x-ray machines can be done without power plants on a smaller scale.

Microgrids work Alaska has proven this with wind, solar can do the same thing, yes they have their drawback but it is a hell of a lot safer then using something that will kill you and pollute the environment for decades if it goes sideways. Also as I pointed out there is new tech in the work stuff that is able to generate power 24/7 they are currently working on scaling that tech up it will start to hit the market in the next five to ten years. infrared doesn't turn off when the sun goes down damn near everything makes it. The video below has the guy explain the breakthrough in nanotech power generation. Nuclear power is dead outside of needing the materials for medical tech.
