    no mention of where the adequate supply of high-grade uranium is going to come from.

    there isn't enough already, let alone for an expanded nuclear industry.

    Why doesn't the U.S. look to France for solutions and implementations when is comes to nukes?

    Don't bother, Z-B.

    This country will never use anything but oil because the oil companies own this country.

    Out west, we've huge expanses of dirt where nobody will give a fuck.

    Modern nuclear plants, properly regulated and with safety regulations strictly enforced, are safe. Sure, there's always a risk, but drastic improvements have been made since 3 Mile Island.


    There are only two snags: Making sure we have enough American sources of nuclear fuel and killing Republicans who keep putting CEOs and VPs of oil companies into political office.

    I have one in my back yard. They just built a huge outlet mall right in the shadows of it. Not a deterrent to living or shopping here. This dang town has exploded with growth in the past 10 years or so.
