    Nuke power is just not cost efficient, we already have cheaper natural resources that can secure our power needs for at least the next century.
    Nuke power costs on average 2-3x more per kilowatt hour.

    Not to mention that almost every level of it is subsidized by the government, from fuel collection to construction.

    This does not inspire confidence in your opinions on issues, because it becomes impossible to discern what is a legitimate piece of information and what is a baseless assumption not founded in fact.
    LOL. Who owns Indian Point is irrelevant to which power company serves Westchester County and NYC.

    But it is relevent to making the assumption that Indian Point was the one that Tashah was taliking about because he said "My home receives power from a ComEd nuclear reactor".

    Even if you misread that as ConEd, you still didn't point to a ConEd reactor.

    LOL. It was a ConEd facility when I grew up there.¹

    Absolutely yes. Clean, safe, cuts ties with despot laden oil, provides radio-isotopes for medicine and engineering, forward looking.

    Properly designed reactors are safe.

    Period.

    Mayor Snorkum is watching that fool Lieberman bad mouthing nuclear power. Of course, couldn't be more typical for the left to rush out an politicize the issue.

    I think we really need to understand what is really happening in Japan before you can have intelligent discourse on this subject. Any current discussion is just amongst people that have rigid, preconceived ideas on the subject.
    '

    Not really.

    How about not building nuclear reactors at sea level where they can be damaged by tsunamis?

    How about if new reactors have low power densities making catastrophic LOCA/LOFA events impossible?

    Lots and lots of design options making Chernobyl/TMI/Fukushima impossible.

    You mean like in the Idaho National Laboratory, where all those reactors are out in the middle of the desert?
