Is nuclear renaissance over?

Is Nuclear renaissance over?


But why it it sure now, that nuclear renaissance is over?

Mother Nature want it!

Go back to the year 1986 and study all what happened around Chernobyl disaster, a nuclear accident that occurred on 26 April 1986 at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in the Ukrainian SSR (now Ukraine).

It is considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history, and it is the only one classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale.

After the Chernobyl disaster most governments and citizens wanted to stop nuclear power plants, the Germans did it!

An American energy trading company analyzed that the failure at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant was linked to human failure and they decided to change their employment policy in recruiting only the best!

ENRON started, together with McKinsey & Company, the War for Talent, that should avoid or mitigate future disasters like Chernobyl disaster!

ENRON went bankrupt in 2001!

In July 22, 2002, Malcolm Gladwell wrote an intriguing article in the New Yorker about ENRON's failure and why the experience of older, experienced employees is more important than the talent of newly hired college graduates!

Onle five years after his articles, the global financial crisis started because the global banks had fired all older, experienced employees before!

To hire only talents and to fire all older, experienced employees, wasn't the solution as well as to continue using nuclear power plants wasn't the solution either!

In New Statesman, Nassim Nicholas Taleb wrote in "Beware those Black Swans" about the epistemic arrogance of our talent warriors and said: "My dream is to have a true "epistemocracy"; that is, a society robust against expert errors, forecasting errors and hubris, one that can be resistant to the incompetence of politicians, regulators, economists, central bankers, bank ers, policy wonks and epidemiologists."

Can we rely on our talents?


Can we believe our talents, when they assure us that nuclear power plants are save?


Is Nuclear Power Worth the Risk?


Is the price too high?


What did us cost the War for Talent?

It cost our economies over 120 millions older, experienced employees who were unemployed and we risk that 60% of all our countries will go bankrupt within 50 years because of our waste in human capital!

In A Country's Lasting Aftershocks, New York Times OP-ED CONTRIBUTORS SATORU IKEUCHI, GENICHIRO TAKAHASHI and MITSUYOSHI NUMANO explain us the problem we're faced with!

Science's Arrogance

And they introduce the problem as: "The physicist Torahiko Terada wrote in 1934, "The more civilization progresses, the greater the violence of nature's wrath." Nearly 67 years later, his words appear prescient.

Humans have become increasingly arrogant, believing they have conquered nature. We build ever larger, ever more concentrated, ever more uniform structures. Scientists and engineers think that they are responding to the demands of society, but they have forgotten their larger responsibilities to society, emphasizing only the positive aspects of their endeavors."

For the first time in the history of nuclear power plants, human failure cannot be blamed anymore!

It's an act of god that has caused the disaster, a natural catastrophe as an answer to science's arrogance and we have to listen to mother nature and to end the game!

We have no other choice!

What do you think?

Is nuclear renaissance over?

Have a great and prosperous time!
