Description

Planet Earth is presently headed toward CO2-driven thermal extinction of large land animal life forms. This process can potentially be stopped, but only by parties who understand the relevant physics and who act promptly. In this presentation, I will indicate the nuclear fuel issues that must be addressed now to limit further injection of CO2 into Earth’s atmosphere and then I will review the corresponding nuclear hardware requirements.    

Immediate major changes in government policy are required, particularly with respect to all aspects of funding and reprocessing of used nuclear fuel.

You may be eligible for 1 CPD hour.

Charles Rhodes, P.Eng., B.Sc., M.A.Sc., Ph.D.

 

Charles Rhodes, P.Eng., B.Sc., M.A.Sc., Ph.D., is the Chief Engineer of Xylene Power Ltd. and FNR Power Ltd. (Formerly known as Micro Fusion International Ltd.) Dr. Rhodes has more than 50 years of physics and engineering experience that includes development, manufacture, installation, operation and maintenance of: distributed energy control and mechanical equipment monitoring systems for major buildings, thermal energy storage systems, pipelines, high efficiency boilers and grid connected behind-the-meter electricity generation systems.

Dr. Rhodes has been an intervenor and expert witness in Ontario Energy Board (OEB) electricity rate hearings. He has also been an expert witness in Alberta Energy Board (AEB) hearings relating to wind generation and buried sour gas pipe lines. He has supported various parties in interventions relating to interprovincial and interstate pipelines.

Other work by Dr. Rhodes has been in the areas of engineering education, engineering management, corporate management, power line carrier, RF, VHF, and UHF communication systems, microcontrollers, microprocessor and microcontroller programming for real time control, electricity and heat metering, electricity rate and regulatory issues, wind generation, fluorescent lighting, solid state device fabrication and characterization, high vacuum systems, cryogenic physics, semi-stable plasmas, nuclear waste disposal, fast fission and fusion reactors, biofuels and the physics of climate change. Much of his recent work has been related to liquid sodium cooled modular fast neutron reactors for mitigation of climate change.

Dr. Rhodes has broad experience that spans almost all aspects of energy.
