Why I changed my mind about nuclear power – Michael Schellenbeger

For those who have not had time to read his book, here’s the video of his TED talk three years ago, “Why I changed my mind about nuclear power”

Clearly his disillusionment with renewable energy has been a long time coming:

Environmentalists have long promoted renewable energy sources like solar panels and wind farms to save the climate.

But what about when those technologies destroy the environment?

In this provocative talk, Time Magazine “Hero of the Environment” and energy expert, Michael Shellenberger explains why solar and wind farms require so much land for mining and energy production, and an alternative path to saving both the climate and the natural environment.

Michael Shellenberger is a Time Magazine Hero of the Environment and President of Environmental Progress, a research and policy organization.

A lifelong environmentalist, Michael changed his mind about nuclear energy and has helped save enough nuclear reactors to prevent an increase in carbon emissions equivalent to adding more than 10 million cars to the road.

He lives in Berkeley, California.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

Don`t worry there is no significant man- made global warming. The global warming scare is not driven by science but driven by politics. Al Gore and the UN are dead wrong on climate fears. The IPCC process is a perversion of science.
