The Energy Return of Nuclear Power
Check out this recent post on The Oil Drum:
Storm Van Leeuwen this, Storm Van Leeuwen that, Storm Van Leeuwen the other thing. Since Storm Van Leeuwen said this, obviously that’s the facts, and that’s that.
But just in case the author had any credibility left over after writing that, it seems they threw in a Caldicott citation just for good measure.
Here are some of my favourite websites which deal with the energy analysis of the nuclear fuel cycle – suffice to say that every single one of them is pretty damning of the Van Leeuwen and Smith study.
Everyone should feel free to post a comment over there with your thoughts on the data used, and the conclusions drawn from it.
