12 Nuclear Energy Production Although the national percentage of nuclear generated electricity is 19.2%, it varies from state to state. VT- 73.3% NH-49.1% TN-33.4% NY-30.6% MN-25% KS-19.7% MA-13.8% MO-9.7% CT-50.3% IL-47.8% MD-32.1% AZ-27.9% AR-24.7% LA-18.2% OH-11% WA-9.1% NJ-49.9% VA-36.3% NC-31.7% MI-26.3% GA-24.3% MS-17.7% FL-10.5% IA-7.8% SC-49.9% PA-33.8% NE-30.9% AL-25% WI-20.6% CA-15.9% TX-10.1% Percent of Nuclear Power Generated into Electricity Data: Nuclear Energy Institute

13 Solutions to Global Warming

14 Fifteen Ways to Stabilize CO 2 Emissions Of the 15 methods (wedges) proposed by a Princeton University study, 13 of them relate energy use. Implementation of any 7 would accomplish the goal of stabilizing emissions. 1. Efficient vehicles 2. Reduced use of vehicles 3. Efficient buildings 4. Efficient coal power plants 5. Gas instead of coal power plants 6. Capture CO 2 at base load power plant 7. Nuclear power for coal power 8. Wind power for coal power 9. Photovoltaic power for coal power 10. Capture CO 2 at H 2 plant 11. Capture CO 2 at coal-to-synfuels plant 12. Wind H 2 in fuel-cell car for gasoline in hybrid car 13. Biomass fuel for fossil fuel
