The myth that we need nukes and coal for baseload power

This article is a good attack on the myth that we need nukes and coal for baseload power.

Busting the carbon and cost myths of Germany's nuclear exit

Damian Carrington, Berlin - Wednesday 23 May 2012 08.15 BST

Critics of the atomic phase-out said energy emissions, costs and imports would all rise. They were wrong.

With the UK taking another step towards supporting new nuclear power on Tuesday – at either no extra cost to the consumer if you believe ministers, or substantial cost if you believe most others – it's worth taking a look at what actually happens when you phase out nuclear power in a large, industrial nation.

A nuclear-free future: if Germany can do it, why can't we?


Camilla Berens argues that the road to sustainability needs to be built by pioneers not procrastinators


The Energy Report - 100% renewable energy by 2050

This report is a WWF and Ecofys collaborative work which shows that all of the world’s energy needs could be provided cleanly, renewably and economically.

It demonstrates that by 2050, power, transport, industrial and domestic energy needs could be met overwhelmingly from renewable sources vastly reducing anxieties over energy security, pollution and not least, catastrophic climate change.

The report also investigates the most critically important political, economic, environmental and social choices and challenges and encourages their further debate.

The Energy [R]evolution

Report by Greenpeace International, June 2010

In this scenario, an ambitious energy efficiency program along with massive development of renewable energy happen in parallel, so that by 2050, the global energy system is 95% powered by renewable energy. Energy will move towards a decentralised system using local renewable sources such as wind, solar and geothermal.

Zero Carbon Britain 2030

zerocarbonbritain2030 is a positive, realistic vision for an energy progressive society free from fossil fuels. It provides political, economic and technological solutions to the urgent challenges raised by climate science. It explores the synergies between sectors to create the first fully integrated solution to climate change.

Renewables and energy saving can deliver more carbon savings than nuclear

Neil Crumpton, until recently Friends of the Earth’s anti-nuclear campaigner/energy spec­ialist, has produced a “carbon-negative” non-nuclear UK 2050 energy scenario. The proposed infrastructure would have the potential to go beyond low-car­bon energy technologies should climate protection policies re­quire it. Neil will soon be em­ployed by the Bellona Founda­tion to set up a Bellona UK to progress such far-reaching energy and climate solutions.
