  • I hope you guys are memeing because getting passionately mad over guy branded stuff that we just find kinda neat is a new level of stupid I haven't been exposed to yet. I want my asshole to smell like mint, so I buy dude wipes. I want canned water to cut down on plastic usage, so I buy liquid death. I want a burger that's not made of animals so I buy a beyond burger. Beyond what? I don't fucking know I just want a burger.

    It's not that deep.

  • A renewable energy transition that doesn’t harm nature? It’s not just possible, it’s essential
  • If they last for decades, why is there so much ewaste for specifically photovolatic cells? Theoretically lasting decades, sure, but they seem to have a high chance of breaking.

    I don't think there's a single real world instance of a city having batteries being able to sustain the load for the night without any added generation. That would be newsworthy and a massive win for renewables. They might get there eventually with sodium based batteries but that has yet to be seen.

    If solar panels were discarded less and battery arrays could be cheaply made so that nuclear and coal weren't nessesary, I'd agree with you, but I haven't seen either of those things. They're "likely in the future" but by that time, we could make another nuclear power plant.

    And all this without even considering fusion, which in my humble opinion, would replace renewables.

  • A renewable energy transition that doesn’t harm nature? It’s not just possible, it’s essential
  • If you use the metric of LCOE, sure, throwing a bunch of cheap solar panels all over the place can just barely be cheaper than the cost to produce them. However, the article even admits this doesn't include the nessesary use of batteries for renewables, assumes battery technologies will get cheaper and better, while disregarding alternatives. I have to still stress that even if I concede the point they're almost the same where solar just barely wins, the waste is nowhere near the same. The need for batteries is nowhere near the same. These are hurdles solar still faces that nuclear doesn't need to solve.

    Photovolatic panels still generate thousands of times more waste than anything I've seen from nuclear and we don't have cheap enough batteries to be able to make arrays to support entire cities the way a nuclear plant can and does.

    I get why renewables are attractive but I still don't see the downside to nuclear. The only valid point I've been given is "time to build" which yes, we should have started thirty years ago. Why not right now?

  • A renewable energy transition that doesn’t harm nature? It’s not just possible, it’s essential
  • The cost and waste per GW/H of power is also staggeringly different. Even if we took spent reactor parts into account for waste and calculated the cost, would it fall short for solar or wind? I haven't seen any data that would suggest renewables could compete with nuclear in terms of power generation per waste or cost, let alone beat it, but I'm willing to examine anything you put forth.

    In fact, I've only ever seen the opposite. That nuclear has a superior ratio in nearly every metric and that's not considering where fusion could end up taking us.

  • 390,000 metric tons since nuclear was started. In 1954. It wouldn't even register a .5 on this chart.

    It's fucking insulting you know so little about what I'm talking about yet still disregard it. I shouldn't need to hunt down something that should be readily apparent yet here I am.

  • It wouldn't show up because nuclear waste is beyond miniscule and nearly every atom is accounted for. No other industry can claim that.
