    So basically the government will recoup enough to fund 10 whole days of its current spending over a decade while increasing the costs of oil companies doing business, who will then pass it on to their customers.

    Yeah, that's a great fucking idea.

    Well, these aren't subsidies. That's a lie, but nonetheless, these tax breaks should be repealed. They are unfair.

    Listen folks, the worlds future energy source will be nuclear.

    Nuclear fuel is a substance that is used in nuclear power stations to produce heat to power turbines. Heat is created when nuclear fuel undergoes nuclear fission.

    Now that the uranium is in a gaseous form, it is easier to work with. You can put the gas into a centrifuge and spin it up. The centrifuge creates a force thousands of times more powerful than the force of gravity. Because the U-238 atoms are slightly heavier than the U-235 atoms, they tend to move out toward the walls of the centrifuge. The U-235 atoms tend to stay more toward the center of the centrifuge.

    Centrifuges are the key to our energy future. We need all the centrifuges we i.e. the world can get our hands on to make the fuel we need to power the world's future energy needs.

    Don't let Israel's fear mongering distract us from our true needs.

    We, i.e. the world needs Iran's centrifuges to help produce our future energy needs

    Do you agree, yes/no and state why?
