    Yawn okay whatever. That would have my point of discussion in the first place. I most lilely would have used frontline and other sources. But seeing you just want to go on the attack I'm not going to bother.

    Do you have sources that show radiation leaked and was a danger to plant, animal or humans?

    By all means, let's see it. I've looked, never found a credible source that said TMI was a danger to anyone or caused any harm.

    Those who bash Obama for expanding government are essentially hypocrites when they call for more nuclear power, but at this stage, I'm frankly amazed if anyone has any part of their ideology logically consistent.

    Except you of course right?

    And if you removed much of the stupidity with eco-nazi's filing a million and one lawsuits against nuclear plants being built it wouldn't cost nearly as much, and there would be FAR LESS NEED of Government.

    In the future, you really should make a half decent attempt to make it look you even bothered to open that link. It's pretty clear you assumed what you wanted, didn't even do any work and went off on a knee jerk response.

    I'll give you another try before I bust your chops.

    Put some effort into your posts for a change.

    Initial investment is high due to many things.

    Regulation (at least they ended the double license BS).
    Lawsuits
    Over all long term construction (three years to build a GIII plant) assuming all goes well.

    The ROI for Nuclear power is longer then an oil or coal plant, but the long term operation is financially secure.

    There is no 100% certainty in ANYTHING, but I agree with you the chances of a Cherynobyl are VERY THIN, we have safety protocols in place to prevent much of what happened to that place.

    I will say though Nuclear power is the way to go.

    While I will not say we are within 100% certainty preventing a nuclear disaster I will say that nuclear safety technology even since three mile island has increased considerably to the point I wouldn't mind a nuclear plant near my home.

    I applaud the republicans pushing this.

    Sorry but while I criticize Obama for the bailouts and such, government spending in nuclear is a MUST.

    Nuclear power is the way to go as well as refining nuclear waste.

    The main reason we don't refine our nuclear waste is it can be seen as prolifering nuclear weapons.

    I think we should implement refining nulcear waste with U.N watchdogs because we know those ****ers won't let anything go past the U.S.

    Nuclear energy is the future, we can use the same rods for about a year and a half, now that is efficient. And if we actually put money into it I bet we can make nuclear much safer and more efficient.
    If I had a billion dollars?

    Actually can use the same rods for about 6 years (3 cycles of about 2 years) IIRC.

    I think the major holdup right now on Nuclear is the storage of the nuclear waste and the way it is transported and of course where the plant is located.
