CE3D (‘seed’): Clean Energy for Everyone, Everywhere, on Demand

There’s lots of talk lately about pairing nuclear power with wind and solar for a carbon free energy future. Many political 'leaders' call for phase-out of fossil fuels and favors to unreliable electricity providers to mitigate climate change. But is that the correct goal? According to the OFRA/CRED International Disaster Database, climate-related deaths have declined 10-fold over the past 100 years, mainly in countries with sufficient energy to build resilient structures and to enable immediate medical response when disasters strike followed by robust economic recovery.

Let’s shift the focus from reducing energy consumption to addressing the needs of billions of people who, for lack of cheap and reliable fuels, are the most vulnerable. Our standard of living increased dramatically with use of energy dense fossil fuels that powered the industrial revolution. We need to take the next step, toward emission-free nuclear, the most energy dense and reliable fuel available.

We will examine the question, how will nuclear help us accomplish CE3D.
