So typically, Steve Packard sees with clarity how ridiculous are the “zero net carbon” communities
(…) Waterford is hardly unique, however. Whether it’s Buchanan, New York, Seabrook, New Hampshire or Dresden Illinois, anyone living in a town that hosts a nuclear power reactor can rest assured that they are part of a carbon-negative community. Considering that a one gigawatt power reactor can displace upwards of a million tons of CO2 from coal power plants per year, it would be hard to be anything but carbon negative!
So dare I ask, while everyone’s getting all excited about a little town in Colorado that just might maybe perhaps have a shot at being carbon neutral in the near future, where’s the love for all the carbon neutral and negative nuclear towns in the US and abroad?
