Forbes: Did Tesla just kill nuclear power?


Nuclear proponents argue that humans can store radioactive waste, but not solar energy. Tesla’s Elon Musk just proved them wrong.

“We all know that the wind doesn’t blow consistently and the sun doesn’t shine every day, but the nuclear industry would have you believe that humankind is smart enough to develop techniques to store nuclear waste for a quarter of a million years, but at the same time human kind is so dumb we can’t figure out a way to store solar electricity overnight. To me that doesn’t make sense.”
