Nuclear waste is fed by the UK energy

Nuclear waste is fed by the UK energy Facts

David King predicts that the world's uranium reserves will dry up as early as 2023, if all designed nuclear power plants will be built around the world. Therefore, the UK will have to rely on local resources to provide the country with nuclear fuel. Reducing carbon emissions will not be possible if the country will use the stock of plutonium.

Chief scientist of the country reports that in conditions of increasing power consumption and the need for mid-century to reduce emissions by 80%, the only solution is seen in the use

Small volcanoes cool the Earth

July 6. Products of volcanic eruptions that do not reach the stratosphere once, after a while there is still carried by atmospheric currents and begin to reflect the sun's rays.

Scientists have shown that even small volcanic eruptions have a significant impact on the climate, saturating the upper layers of the atmosphere of their emissions. The study is published in the journal Science.

Previously it was thought that only large volcanoes that could throw ash particles directly into the stratosphere affect climate in the long term. Sulphur dioxide (SO2), one of the main products of volcanic activity, forms in the
