Chine to drop solar, push nukes

Asia Pulse reports:

China will accelerate the use of new-energy sources such as nuclear energy and put an end to blind expansion in industries such as solar energy and wind power in 2012, Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao says in a government report published on March 5.

China will instead develop nuclear power in 2012, actively develop hydroelectric power, tackle key problems more quickly in the exploration and development of shale gas, and increase the share of new energy and renewable energy in total energy consumption…

  1. That should free up a lot more rare earth resources for use in *productive* industries, such as cell phone manufacturing.

  2. The Chinese figured it out!

    The nucleus is where energy is stored as rest mass, generated by the force of gravity doing work against the repulsive force between neutrons in the cores of galaxies, stars, some planets and all atoms heavier than about 150 amu (atomic mass units).

    That is the energy source that world leaders tried to hide for the past sixty-six years (65.667 yrs), since Hiroshima was vaporized by that force on 6 Aug 1945. The rest of the story is documented here:

  3. With this attitude, the Chinese have a bright future. It makes sense to go with hydro, nukes and thermal generation. They work 24/7. Solar goes to sleep at night, and wind generation works only when the wind blows. Don’t tell the liberals; it will only confuse them.
