It is obvious
that our present 113 nuclear power plants would have to be increased more than
10 fold in order to supply present total
The oxides of nitrogen (NOx) have been labeled a dangerous pollutant and are probably a Greenhouse gas. However lightning also makes NOx and this has been consided beneficial in causing more plant growth. High efficiency engines with higher compression ratios make more NOx. If we consider the Agricultural benefits of NOx, the need to reduce CO2 production, and the need for energy conservation is it not true that the pollution aspects of NOx should be ignored?
