    Stop. You don't know what you are talking about. You probably don't realize it, but you're pasting together snippets from all over your memory. Half of them probably came from works of fiction, but you don't remember the sources. Source Amnesia, is the term.

    Half the stuff we think we know is complete horse****.
    The biggest problem I see with nuclear power is that it is run by for profit corporations. This immediately opens the door to cutting corners and breaking regulations in pursuit of the almighty bottom line.How, after the recent financial fiasco, anyone can trust corporate America with anything as potentially devastating as a nuclear reactor is beyond me. It's not like we don't have a large supply of government personnel with the necessary expertise since the U.S. Navy uses nuclear power extensively and has been a pioneer in the field.

    Handled properly, radioactive waste needn't be so scary as it seems...

    If reprocessing is undertaken only to reduce the radioactivity level of spent fuel it should be taken into account that spent nuclear fuel becomes less radioactive over time. After 40 years its radioactivity drops by 99.9%,[38]
