Comparative Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Power Generation: World Nuclear Association




GLOBAL WARMING REDUCTION & EARTH SAFE?

for the past long time, every one in this world worried about global warming impact which is keen to pose danger to earth life.. so many step, effort and so on had be taken to reduce this global warming impact (GREENHOUSE EFFECTS) such as reduce the usage of CFC product, avoid open burning, reduce fuel consumption ( car pool ) and more. all step is taken to reduce the carbon (CO2) emission because this is the main parent factor for this GREENHOUSE EFFECTS. the question now is; why if all humans keen to reduce this global warming effects, why not they switch to power source such as nuclear power as shown above in the chart above? first, for every one info, power generation also release carbon to the air/surrounding as seen from the chart above... as for current situation, most of the power source in this world is generated through coal, fuel/gas and so on. if we take our country,Malaysia most power generation is from fuel/gas and coal. from the chart above, this 2 source are the main supplier of carbon emission to air. with such a thing, can the world reduce the impact of global warming? for sure the answer now should be no (my opinion).... so to reduce this global warming impact and thus safe our world, it is recommended that more greener technology source should be used for power generation such as nuclear power, renewable energy (e.g wind turbine and so on)..... But as can see from the chart above, nuclear power generation is much more a better choice because it release less carbon compare to wind turbine power generation....... so from here, all have to judge on which power generation type should be used in order to safe the earth from ongoing global warming scenario.......

  1. gud idea bro.... hw bout hybrid wind energy???.... if at all CO2 waste from npp is low,how about radiation and other waste from npp? will it post more danger compare to other type of power generation???

  3. Pervin: The radiation is explained in our blog topic RADIATION posted on 12/7. Hybrid Wind Energy is a good choice too. But there is only prototype available for now. To build such a turbine it takes more time n design.

  4. why don't we try using Renewable Energy only? Even Nuclear is Green, but it is still dangerous for any natural misfortune to happen. So why can't we just stick to Renewable like Wind Solar and so on..

  5. sirmkinc: sir, its good to have you here cause you opened many questions and we will try our level best to provide our ans for all that. In Malaysia, we cannot build Wind near coast, for wind turbine doesn't give much efficiency and solar too couldn't give out much efficiency because Malaysia is Cloudy. However, we could use NPP as the base load and Renewable as the Peak Load.

  6. what is base load and peak load?

  7. sirmkinc: Base load are the Supply that got to be there all the time, night or dawn. Peak load are usually the day times, or office hours, where electricity is used most of time.

    Thank u sir.

  8. sorry about the earlier comment, need to add on it. We cannot build wind turbine near coast for our wind doesn't seem strong enough to turn the turbine.
