The whole idea of nuclear doesn't impress me. Look at Chernobyl and what it did to it's generation of youths. That' a catastrophic effect on what nuclear radiation can do on us. Not to be concern with the disastrous effects when it can't be controlled is a vast crime. Also, what to do with nuclear wastes? Encasing it in concrete for the next half million years isn't a solution. We need better methods of generating safe, clean and cheap energy that won't kill us all or disfigure us all and mess up the earth even more than it is all ready. The question is are we trying to serve man kind or kill it off? We need better energy alternatives not more caos to pay for.
OK, D.A.S. you are anti-nuclear. That is fine. I sure don't hear any solutions from you that will meet the very substantial energy needs of the future.
Well, how about we find some way of attaching those concrete blocks filled with nuclear waste to a cruise missle and launch them into outter space! Maybe send them into another universe/galaxy. No longer our problem:) Or send it directly into the sun, let it melt...somehow....
what if your rocket explodes before it goes where its going. now you have a widespread containment isue that has been atomised to the four winds of the globe.!
