Will the enlightened please show us a single nuclear plant producing an Exajoule per annum or 278TWh. Still waiting. The largest is 8GW, which running all year without stop gives 70TWh. And even the largest hydro plant falls short.

I assumed you meant 1EJ in a plant lifetime because the idea of 1EJ in 1 year hasn't been done, or even close.

Right because we were discussing TwH in lifetime scales:sneaky:

You were caught with your pants down.:LOL:

No amount of back-pedaling can change that now. Its a part of history bro. You thought 20 TwH is 'exajoule' scale.:eek: Period.

That aside, the fact remains, renewables are either the highly polluting and environmentally destructive biomass or the 'spent trillions still can't produce 1EJ' wind and solar.

Why not, it is a measure of total energy output over a period. And like I said, no current nuclear plant comes close to 1EJ/Year, so it was natural to assume you meant a longer period.

Still waiting to see this 1EJ/Year nuclear plant. Can you even show me any 0.5EJ/Year nuclear plant?

I've already explained sustainably managed forestry.
