1) Any estimate as to when 100% penetration would happen, or 80%, or 60%., 50%, 30%....? Will this happen anytime before th GW tipping point?????????
2) Globally jobs are not supporting centralized...? Oh, Is that in China, or in India, in Africa?
Let's face it this anti-centrlization is really like a Cult. It has nothing to do with Cheaper or FF/Carbon free power. It is merely a dogma that is an end, in and of itself.
Decentralization won't even help Wind Farms, nor will it promote the concept of a super grid either.
3) The exploding and fast growing, industralizing, and fast urbanizing populations of the world don't give a damn if power centralized or not, they just want jobs and relliable 24-7 power, and it's not the kind of jobs from instaling donated PV panels either. They want to manufacture their own cement, their own Iron and Steel, their own cars, their own modern homes with electrical applliances.
4) And the Tsunami thing? Let is come. Tsunami's don't happen in Africa, Europe, or Central and Easter US. AND even where they do happen, they wouldn't endanger a MSR or Ship Bourne SMR.
More on Nuclear power:
If the US builds 8 Nuclear Plants in 8 years, this would average out to one plant per year. Each plant could physically replace a Coal Fired or even Natural Gas plant. YES, believe it or not Natural Gas produces CO2.
** We could build them even faster once we standardize a design.
