2021, May, 12, 12:25:00HYDROGEN ECONOMY & CCS
The gist of the technical case for CCS in a hydrogen economy is that, so long as fossil fuels are available and deliver a high energy return on energy invested (EROEI), it is inherently cheaper and more efficient to produce hydrogen from fossil fuels by reforming, rather than by electrolysis of water.

2021, May, 4, 12:30:00NUCLEAR POWER: INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT
"The fact that nuclear energy is a very low emissions technology is going to ensure that we have clean air, clean water and that we have plenty of open space to actually enjoy and have healthy communities."
2021, May, 4, 12:25:00NUCLEAR FOR ENVIRONMENT
The word 'clean' applies to nuclear energy in a 'holistic' way. For example, the absence of air pollution and what that means for the health of people, settlements and ecosystems. Another important benefit of nuclear energy, in contrast to some other clean energy technologies, concerns land use.
