Correction to what I say at 17 minutes 29 seconds: It is 3 meters in diameter and 20 meters in height (not 3 meters in diameter and 20 feet in height). I’m sorry! You can support us on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/Sabine Is nuclear energy good or bad? In this much-requested episode, I’ll round up the most up-to-date numbers on the state of nuclear power and break down its pros and cons. We will also see what new technological developments offer: molten salt reactors, thorium reactors and small modular reactors. I learned quite a bit while working on this video and I hope you find this summary useful. The table I show at 3 minutes and 16 seconds is from this IPCC report https://www.ipcc.ch/site/assets/uploads/2018/02/ipcc_wg3_ar5_full.pdf The article by Muellner et al that analyzed the 6 minutes 43 seconds is here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0301421521002330 The figure I show in 7 minutes 22 seconds is from the State of World Nuclear Power Report which you can read here: https ://www.worldnuclearreport.org/IMG/pdf/wnisr2021-lr.pdf The article from 2013 that I mention at 8 minutes 51 seconds is this: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/es3051197 The 2016 article on the Death Toll of Nuclear vs. Renewables that I mention in 9 minutes and 22 seconds is here: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0959652615009877 The WHO/Chernobyl forum estimate for the number of deaths from the Chernobyl accident is from this report: https://inis.iaea.org/collection/NCLCollectionSto re/_Public/36/093/36093263.pdf The quote I show at 14 minutes 36 is from this report: https://w ww.iaea.org/publications/13550/world-thorium-occurrences-deposits-and-resources (sorry for the weird audio quality there) The Nature article on the thorium reactor in China that I show in 15 minutes and 28 seconds is this: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-021-02459- w And finally, the science news that I mention in 17 minutes 46 seconds is this: https://www.science.org/content/article/several-us-utilities-back-out-deal-build-novel-nuclear- power-plant Many thanks to Jordi Quesque for helping with this video http://jordibusque.com/ 0:00 Intro 2:30 Climate Friendly 6:04 Non-renewable 7:05 Expensive 8:22 Dangerous 12:13 Fast Breeders 13: 42 Molten Salt Reactors 14:22 Thorium Reactors 15:43 Small Modular Reactors 18:00 Summary 21:12 Message from the sponsor #science #technology #nuclear #climate .
