    I havent seen anything that can provide enough power and not have the co2 emissions aside from nuclear so its seems like a no brainer to me.

    [ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/r/r...r_of_time.html ]
    Someday, Someway You'll realise that you've been blind
    Yes Darling, you're going to need me again
    It's just a matter of time
    Go on, go on Til you reach the end of the line
    Cause I know you'll pass my way again
    It's just a matter of time
    After I gave you everything I had
    You laughed and you called me a clown
    Remember in your search for fortune and fame
    What goes up must come down
    I know, I know That one day you'll wake up and find
    That my love is a true love
    It's just a matter of time

    Words are spoken with chords played
    Someday and Someway
    Girl you'll realise that you've been blind
    Yes Darling, I know you gonna need me again
    It's just a matter of time

    After I gave you everything I had
    You laughed and you called me a clown
    But remember in your search for fortune and fame
    What goes up must come down
    I know, I know That one day you'll wake up and find
    That my love was a true love
    It's just a matter of time

    After Fukishima? Not really.

    But if they must to keep power costs reasonable, I don't want to live anywhere near the things.

    Well, since the idea seems to appeal across the board -- what's the hold up? Why aren't we building nuclear power plants rather than debating the Keystone Pipeline and handing out fraking licenses like candy?

    I'm no scientist, but I doubt many of us live far enough away from an existing nuclear power plant not to be radiated if it melted.

    The US apparently recommended a 50 mile evacuation zone after the Fukishima accident.

    I am sure there are many, many places in the United States that are farther then 50 miles from a nuclear power plant.

    And what happened in Fukishima is about as serious as I think would possibly (worst-case scenario) happen on U.S. soil.

    it's a nuclear energy technology that i hope is / becomes actually feasible :

    i admit that nuclear physics is not my area of scientific expertise. however, everything i've read about it looks at least potentially hopeful.

    Not only would I tolerate it, I actively encourage it!
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Yes, because we all know our government is so very efficient when it comes to running and/or regulating any industry............I thought the idea was cheaper, cleaner and more efficient.............under this premise, are you certain you want the federal govt running things?

    Re: Would You Tolerate Nuclear Power For Energy Independence?

    Absolutely. Nuclear power is by far the best option to meet the power needs of the country right now. Especially if we can start building things like molten salt reactors that are much more efficient and safer than the reactors they use today.
