Sun 13 Nov 2017. An international team of scientists suggests that the world must ramp up energy production by nuclear power if we are to succeed in warding off the worst effects of greenhouse gas emissions on climate change. The team suggests that beginning in 2020 we could achieve an annual electricity output of 20 TW without needing to develop carbon dioxide trapping and storage technology for the tens of billions of tons of emissions that would otherwise drive global warming to catastrophic levels. Recent research suggests that it should be physically and economically plausible to multiply by a factor of fifty the production of nuclear energy by 2100, leading to a complete elimination of fossil fuels wherein 60% of electricity demand is met through nuclear and the remainder through sustainable technology.

Wed 9 Nov 2016. Scientists propose technique to immobilize radioactive waste for millions of years by keeping it in glass. Researchers have searched ways to immobilize waste, particularly iodine-129, which has a half-life of 15.7 million years and can disperse rapidly in air and water, making it crucial for its safe storage and disposal in underground geological formations. The research may eventually lead to ways to safely dispose highly radioactive spent nuclear fuel, which is currently being stored at commercial nuclear power plants. More
