Mentioning anything with Russia right now elicits a feverish response and rightly so, but I’ve just been so quietly happy about the news that a reactor was loaded with recycled nuclear waste for the first time. In the long run, this is really good news neimagazine.com/news/newsrus…

It’s not often that personal preference happens to line up with the environmentally sound decision, but when it does that’s the good shit
A common misconception is that dense cities are bad for the environment The truth is.. cities are environmentally friendly People living in cities generally cause less pollution per person than people living in the suburbs or in rural communities

Hey, you know how else the Czech Republic is kicking Florida’s ass?

Maybe a little unfair, as Florida has nuclear too, but like 70% gas is a terrible use of budget.
Moving from London to Melbourne makes this restaurant name scan very differently

I of course felt extremely defensive about this tweet, because my own main reasons to be into nuclear are all environmentally driven and it feels like all renewables advocates are not taking the climate crisis seriously enough. BUT, of course he has a point
I think a lot of the "No renewables, only nuclear" Twitter bros don't even care about nuclear. What they want is to keep using fossil fuels. But they hold up the idea of nuclear as a talisman to ward away people who want renewables.

For me, it's most clearly exemplified by the myriad of right-wing governments that while they are in power do absolutely nothing for the environment, but the second they are out of power they claim that oh they are so pro- nuclear and how important nuclear is for the environment

Can you tell that I just moved to Australia?

Or like with the new South Korean government, increasing nuclear capacity - great! But then cutting renewables, leaving the amount of fossil fuel use intact. Just nonsense.

People who advocate all renewables systems are not rising to the level of the challenge, but I see lots of people who spend so much time bashing renewables that you start to doubt their motivations. That's fair to call out.

I'm in Australia now! Where are the nuclear Aussies at? I've got @BenPHeard, @OskaArcher, and @TDlisle (sorry for outing youse as Australians) Who is in Australia that I should know and meet?

Very interesting responses, in that so many of them are aimed at projects that were shut down. It reminds me that I'm in a totally different information bubble than other climate activists, I mostly hear and think about supply, increasing the supply of clean energy as a solution
I'm compiling a list. What are the biggest/ best climate victories you can think of? Outside US is bonus. Thanks!

While I agree that a lot of these pipelines and mines and airports are not good for the environment, I just don't see them as very substantial victories because they don't eliminate the demand problem

"The Land of Giants" design proposal for Iceland's electrical pylons. Man I wish there was more of this in infrastructure everywhere

I love how most nuclear content on Tumblr is dorky jokes about uranium, almost no hostility in sight. The next generation is going places!
