    I know a motel over by midway that this s*** would be an upgrade.

    WHAT THE HELL ARE WE GOING TO PUT THIS S*** IN THAT WE KNOW WILL LAST AT LEAST A FEW THOUSAND YEARS. This s*** is going to leak sometime and water, at least potable water,water that you can drink and not keel over is, or will be, one of our scarcest resources before this century is over. At least from what I have read it will be.To me, thats one big a** downside we have to overcome.
    Easy, launch the **** into orbit around Jupiter. Or pick your appropriate location in the Solar System.

    We sure are going to have to re-think the notion that nuclear power is the answer to our energy problems. Of course the right would have a fit if a moratorium was put into effect.

    We have several nukes either in production, or planned in this country, I sure hope that they donít look to shave cost by the elimination of backup power when the main power source goes down. Them suckers get HOT.

    The vast majority of the United States is not at risk for such a powerful earthquake. On the other hand, this should cause us to rethink nuclear power in Taiwan which is just as seismically active as Japan...

    No nukes and no fossil fuels? The Left is going to drag us, kicking and screaming if they have to, into the Dark Ages.

    Awesome! Can't wait!

    And this has what to do with the current emergency? It's politics all the way with you isn't it? You can't dance around with glee to the end of nuclear power soon enough can you?

    Yup, here's more lefty concern for the Japanese people.
