Nuclear against Wind Power

TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) is a small Californian nonprofit organization devoted to “Ideas Worth Spreading”. It was founded in 1984 and now their events are in Long Beach and Palm Spring as well in Europe and Asia offering live streaming of the talks. They address a wide range of topics within the research and practice of science and culture. Past presenters include Bill Clinton, Al Gore, Bill Gates, Google’s founders and many Nobel Prize winners. A website I really recommend to you if you like Science and Culture.

This time, I would like to pay attention on the video that is about Wind and Nuclear Energy. Firstly, we have the nuclear supporter, Stewart Brand, who shows to us actual data about the disadvantages of each energy source, from solar to coal energy. On the other hand, Mark Jacobson, focus his speech on the nuclear problems and then, on the advantages of the Wind power.

I love both presentations, but in my opinion Steward Brand lost this debate because he didn’t focus on his opponent, the Wind Energy. Anyway, it is interesting to hear both opinions.
