The discussion about the benefit of nuclear power for the global climate is kinda broken on both sides. Supporters keep claiming that nuclear power is “free of CO2”. The other side brings up claims like “nuclear power has a higher CO2 output than coal powered plants”. Both arguments are nonsense.
The public discussion about the change of climate is quite active. Usually, the central question is how we can reduce the CO2 output. Another question is mentioned rather seldomly: Can’t already emitted CO2 just be stored away so that it can’t do any harm to the climate?
