    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Seems futile to depend on a power production process that has the capability of wiping out the entire population it's suppose to be helping.

    Seems ****ing stupid, really.
    Ah. You MUST be referring to the reliance in Tokyo on charcoal braziers to heat homes and prepare meals before the 1920s earth quake. That power source burned Tokyo to the ground after a major earth quake. The Japanese no longer cook food and hence the rise of sushi as a dietary fad.

    Only for the ignorant who don't want to expend the effort to understand the concepts.

    Everyone who isn't a thirteen year old anarchist is aware that the government has a specific function to perform, pertaining to the protection of the individual from physical attack, financial fraud, and libel and slander.

    However, I don't have much more confidence in the govt. either. For other reasons.

    If someone like the Dalai Lama, or whoever, took over operation of nuclear power, some group who took their safe operation as some kind of "sacred mission", I think that might work. I think Heinlein wrote a story along these lines.

    Nuclear power could save us all, if corporate greed or govt bureaucratic incompetency didn't kill us all first.

    Therefore I voted other.

    Nuclear Jedi, anyone?
    Just curious, how much nuclear waste was released by BP last year?

    Ok, so how do you have a free market nuclear power plant?

    MAN! That is one damn ignorant geophysist. He didn't expect a major fault ripping earthquake from the Pacific subduction zone off the coast of Japan, the most tectonically active place on the entire planet? You'd figure a Norwestern geophysist would know more about the planet than most people pick up from the Discovery Channel, but looks like geophysics diplomas are handed out to the needy like welfare checks.
