Yep, nothing in the world will ever equal the power, of Nuclear power. You doubt me, just ask yourself how many Solar Panels will it take to destroy Hiroshima. Or how many batteries would it take to destroy Nagasaki. And forget about the wind, just ask the Three Little Pigs about that fairy tail!

Darlington Nuclear just set a record, 894 days without stopping. That is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year long for 2 years and 166 days!

Canada’s Darlington 1 breaks record for nuclear plant operation

Unit 1 at Canada’s Darlington nuclear power plant has set a new North American nuclear record for consecutive days in operation, Ontario Power Generation's (OPG) said.

The Candu reactor set a new Canadian and North American nuclear record with 895 straight days and counting of consecutive operation. Unit 7 of Canada’s Pickering NPP held the previous record at 894 days.

Charged particles from the solar wind induce electric currents in the Earth's iron core, which keep it red hot and in rotation against the tidal drag of the moon.

The sun's energy is mostly due to the nuclear fusion of hydrogen into helium.

It is not clear where uranium in the Earth's core has originated, but it does heat the Earth as it decays, eventually into iron, the most stable element, which then sinks into the core.

Uranium has accumulated naturally from time to time in the Earth's crust in some places to a sufficient level of enrichment to go critical —

Ummm. No. The solar wind has nothing to do with the core rotation.

You are correct on the sun's energy.

We do know where the uranium in the earth came from. Supernova remnants, just like the carbon and oxygen and iron and all the rest of the more complex molecules.

And there has never been a natural supercritical event on the earth.

The world is going nuclear, and china seems to lead. There will be 8 nuclear reactors at this one, site.

The first four units at the Tianwan site are Gidropress VVER units supplied by Russia, as will be the seventh and eighth.


Tianwan Phase I - units 1 and 2 - was constructed under a 1992 cooperation agreement between China and Russia. First concrete was poured in October 1999, and the units were commissioned in June 2007 and September 2007, respectively. Tianwan Phase II - units 3 and 4 - are similar to the first stage of the Tianwan plant, comprising two Russian-designed 1060 MWe VVER-1000 PWRs. First concrete for unit 3 was poured in December 2012, while construction of the fourth unit began in September 2013. Unit 3 entered commercial operation in February 2018, with unit 4 following in December
