Fox news has reportedly removed a video from its website with bogus content, it has gone viral and appears in numerous places on the Internet. The video has anti-nuclear groups claims that radiation levels in the water in Philadelphia are responsible for a spike in infant mortality. These kinds of bogus news stories scare parents and the truth rarely catches up with fiction.
I covered my victory in three 2010 bets with Dittmar. Michael Dittmar had four articles at the Oil Drum abd four papers in Arxiv and had a bunch of coverage at the Technology Review, Economist and newspapers. He predicted a failure to mine more uranium per year and a reduction in nuclear power generation from lack of sufficient uranium. Annual uranium mined is already over 20% more than Dittmar predicted for any year from 2010-2018. It seems pretty clear the lack of ability to mine uranium thesis is complete bunk.
2630 TWH for 2010 (over 2590 TWh I won)
53663 tons of uranium for 2010 (over 50,500 tons I won)
17803 tons of uranium kazakhstan for 2010 (over 15750 tons I won)
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) sees a decade of growth for nuclear power with only a marginal impact from the Fukushima accident. They reduced their expectations for global nuclear capacity in 2020, but the figure still grows by 27% compared to 2010.
