    This shouldnt be a problem in several states. The federal government owns a few million square miles of land across the country. Much of it not in use for anything we couldnt live without.

    Of course I favor nuclear power. We need clean energy sources, and we need to move away from fossil fuels. The planet won't survive without nuclear energy, so we'd better figure out how to get it right.

    You may be right but I do know Yellowstone, albeit in northern Wyoming, is in fact a massive caldera, one of the largest volcanoes in the world.

    And, of course, the problem with positioning power plants in Montana or North Dakota is that a significant cost of electricity has a lot to do with transmission distances. Not a lot demand in the immediate vicinity of Montana and North Dakota.

    I support a solar, wind, geothermal, hydro and tide supported energy economy.

    In the long term, a few decades down the road we'll perfect nuclear fusion, which uses heavy water, and doesn't pollute to a large extent either. Plus it's overwhelmingly efficient. It's just a matter of getting us to that point. Therefore, I'd prefer if large rebates were given to people to buy solar panels for their own home, while the government can exploit the other methods I listed.

    It's not perfect, but the US has such amazing renewable energy resources.

    Once-in-a-generation magnitude caused this? Reminding us once again that some “just once” outcomes are enough not to do something at all.

    To a degree. On the other hand, many of our other sources of energy also run into similar public relations problems. Yet, we cannot exactly trap the Genie, now can we?

    Yellowstone isn't expected to erupt for another, I believe, 750,000 years or so.
    I think we'll be good.


    In favor of nuclear power. It has risks, but everything has risks and I think these are some of the most minimal.

    Yes, I favour it. It is the safest, cleanest, and most efficient power source we have. But the flaws of spent fuel rods is a problem. It is my most favoured power source right now, but once breakthroughs in other sources are made, my mind will change.

    And Tokyo wasn't suppose to be subject to such severe earthquakes. Just sayin'.
