    The rest of your post goes off on such an off-topic tangent, that I won't bother responding.
    my wording was careful, I did not actually call you an idiot, just led you down the path where you decided to infer that you are included in that category...

    By mentioning it in a post about spent nuclear fuel, which others did not understand (I understood, but my focus group was not as... um... focused).

    Re: PetroChina buys entire Alberta oilsands project

    If there is any one point I think is important related to energy issues, it is this...

    we in the USA already have the knowledge and techology to get off the Arab oil teat.....we don't need to stop importing oil from our friends and neighbors, just our enemies. We can devestate the economies of several middle east countries just by not buying from them.
    Effliciencies, aka conserving, not so much by using less but by WASTING less, can cut our energy consumtion drastically.
    then there is the cultural shift, as in the Jimmy Carter days....driving slower, driving less, wear a sweater, etc. DO work.
    The energy bills in my household are considerably less than many of my neighgors because they won't make the effort. One of my AZ neighbors pays about $700 per month during the summer because his wife wants their house cold, not just cool.
    Reporters and politicians are the least reliable source of information on energy topics..

    Well, you either made this up or simply spoke out of ignorance:

    Yes, he and his State Department have the power to kill the pipeline. Congress CAN NOT override the decision.

    Thought you claimed to be an expert on nuclear issues.

    Spent fuel rods are kept in pools of circulating water to keep them cool. Even though spent, they still radiate considerable heat. If the pumps fail, water no longer circulates, the water heats up and begins to boil off exposing the fuel rods to the atmosphere.

    That's what happened at Fukishima.
