The Elephant Under the Rug: Denial and Failed Energy Projects
There is something gut wrong with tis proposition, Only 10 fillups? I want to discredit Hydrogen as much as the next EV lover but something is fishy about this argument.
I read the article and skimmed the source page. The New Atlantis » The Hydrogen Hoax
I guess the numbers are there but what about the working stations like the one Jamie Lee Curtis fills up at? I think they are manufacturing the Hydrogen onsite. Maybe piping it from a nearby facility.
The author lost a lot of credibility with me when he started going on about nuclear power.
At Chernobyl a real meltdown did, in fact, occur. It was terrible, it was probably about as bad as a nuclear plant accident can get. There's no way it "could have been much worse". And yet. . . Compare with the number of people who've died in industrial accidents involving coal mines, natural gas pipelines, oil refineries, and the rest of the fossil fuel industry. Consider also that Chernobyl was an outdated, poorly designed and horribly run plant, and that valuable lessons were learned from both Chernobyl and TMI. . .
There is no "group denial" involved in the nuclear renaissance. The memories of TMI and Chernobyl haven't been casually, unthinkingly brushed aside. Those were painful lessons, but they don't logically lead to an abandonment of nuclear power.
