You seem to be trying to tell me the sky is purple, when I can see for myself it is blue.

Nuclear provides 6% of PRIMARY ENERGY - that is the energy input INTO the generating systems. Of that 6%, 2/3s is wasted as heat in process of converting the heat from the fission reaction into steam to produce electricity.


The "problem" with your sentence, is that every other form of energy, coal, NG, nuclear, use the same methods of generation. So you're saying that they all do that. That has to be the biggest load of bull I have heard in a long time.

Along with the fact that you seem to think that people who do these studies include power that never reached the customer. You're going to be the one to unmask them. That's arrogant.

Lastly, you're going to tell me that the only people who don't are renewables. That's delusional.
