In Perspective, Planet: Small-scale local nuclear electric power plants using recycled fuels!

I would imagine that this project is popular in Canada which, first, is major producer of Uranium, second, has remote communities for which building a power line may not make economical sense and, third, may not enjoy as much sun as countries on lower latitudes.
Ultra Safe Nuclear is actively developing new projects globally in communities showing overwhelming support for clean power from advanced nuclear reactors.

Again Peter,

What are the arguments against this by naysayers, environmentalists and other opponents?

....or perhaps this is like “Apple Pie” , “Motherhood” and bonuses for Christmas with everyone agreeing how wonderful it is?

Who the f..ck is Peter? This is supposed to be an objective view of a technology and up until a few days ago you new nothing about so how would I know their views? I really don't give a shit what they think. The fact is green machines like solar power and windmills can not break the law of physics. They have a very poor EROI and investing in such crap is just plain dumb and a waist of valuable resources. They require a 10 fold increase in extracting material from the earth to produce the same amount of energy as fossil fuel. How can that be good for the environment do you have any idea how much material has to be moved and processed to make one battery for an electric vehicle? Green machines come with some pretty significant environmental baggage of their own but most folks don't realize that.
