Anyone else thought it was going to be about saving guns in CS?
you realize that hydropower is a limited resource? And has quite some impact on wildlife etc?
When I read the title, this was literally the last thing I expected to find here.
im an eco shark :) dudududududu
hydroelectric power is great! The downside to it is the disruption to natural habitats as hydroelectric plants almost always make use of a dam. Nuclear on the otherhand, I believe is just people not really understanding just how safe it is. They are scared by the name and automatically write it off. Here in the US, more and more Nuclear Power plants are getting shut down, and it is really sad to see, but many of the people don't consider it other than a superficial consideration, and immediately shut down the idea because they think of the disasters that have happened. Nuclear is becoming slightly more popular with the younger generations, but the start up costs of a nuclear power plant is too high to justify making the switch right now, and people cannot think past a few years in the future, so the cheaper, less potent renewables are in more favor. I understand that in Europe, especially France, nuclear is more popular, but I don't know the public's opinion on it.
electric cars are shit , if you use electric car i hate you. if you wanna drive a car go get a real car with internal combution engine, if you wanna travel around in a toy go buy a electric car and scam yourself
Nuclear and fusion energy are really the future in terms of green energy it's just getting past the stigma attached to older gen reactors (which is probably supported by oil and natural gas companies)
Cold war era propaganda and military funding destroyed the public's perception of nuclear power, super unfortunate to see (full disclosure, I work in nuclear, so I'm also biased)
Electric vehicles are definitely the future, but greater investments need to be made into batteries and more funding needs to be put into massive energy production like nuclear for them to be sustainable
Hydro is also great (I'm Canadian so I have to defend it), the downside is that sooooo much natural land and homes have been destroyed to make it practical. A lot of people don't realize how much land they take up with displaced water. I'd argue wind and solar are both better for the environment, seems to be the consensus of the engineering department I work with too.
My company is currently developing SMRs which I think are the energy generation of the near future
I think the future is a lot brighter than you're making it out to be. It's heading in the right general direction, as long as there's a shift away from fossil fuels it's a good move, I just wish the eco Lobby like Greanpeace would consider the benefits of nuclear more
It's really a shame nuclear energy has such a negative stigma attached. Personally, I think France was smart to invest heavily in it.
How exactly is solar energy not sustainable? We will have it until the sun dies, and at that point, we won’t have to worry about power at all, cuz we’ll be dead.
Solar is good here at least, we have sun for almost every day of the year
Literally the best bait in a while, props to you
People who actually think that electric cars are the future are dumb af. Literally the only way that would happen would be I was able to fill my entire batery in 5 minutes everywhere and it will never happen.
Once I did 4000km trip in a Tesla and it will never happen again. Worst trip of my life and I dont wanna know how many hours of my life I wasted while I had to wait till this garbage car is ready to go
3/8, I came prepared to defend my PP-Bizon buys in mge matchmaking on dust 2.
carbon capture ain't a real thing tho, nuclear all the way
