    I feel dizzy, I feel faint, the world has come to an end. I agree with CF!


    Of course, the reality is, politics won't let that happen. People get stupid about nuclear power. And there is also the reality folks do get stupid around it sometimes. Chernobyl supposedly happened because a couple of engineers got drunk and wanted to settle a bet.

    So, while I think it is a good idea, there is no way in hell we are going to see it for the foreseeable future.

    I'm pretty lib but Nuclear is the ONLY viable solution to our power needs. The ONLY way to be COMPLETELY free of foreign entanglements is to build nuclear power plants. Now here is the part that will piss off the conservatives. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give up just ONE of your IC cars for a PLUG IN electric and we can reduce our need for petrol fuel based transportation. Of course we would also enjoy MASSIVE amounts of cheap energy which MAY help keep manufacturing jobs HERE in the good 'ol US of A.

    I have an idea. How about we make cars that are beef powered. Not only will we be independent from oil, we will also take out "Public Enemy #1" in the fictitious concept of "GLOBAL WARMING". We will kill two birds with one stone... or is that cows?

    actually it was govt bureaucrats that forced a ridiculous safety (?) test on the plant, sort of like taking the oil out a running car to see how long 'til it stops. the top managers of the plant left town after they could not persuade the officials to stop the test. in a way the test was successful; they found out how long a water cooled nuclear reactor can operate without water. NOT LONG!!

    The Soviet reactors are or were not even close to ours in safety devices. Comparing a Russian reactor problem to us is ignorant at best.

    I think something as Impactful as "NUCLEAR" power plants need to be tested and further studied before we jump the wagon. One miscalculation could be catastrophic and detrimental to the livelihood of innocent bystanders who reside in immediate area.
    That's why we need to look into BEEF powered cars. I tell ya, It will fix everything! Just imagine the smell of that exaust.... Mmmmmmm Exaust.

    All attempts at building such plants are blocked by green wackos.

    They even try to shut down ones in operation like Indian Point in NY (without any plan to replace the lost power).
