    correct, if Yellowstone blows, we don't want to be there....

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.
    I read in Popular Science back in the 70's that Fusion was right around the corner....it has issues of its own. A few decades won't cut it.

    Nuclear power is pretty safe. Chernobyl was a bad design and have pretty stupid management that caused the Explosion. But just to inform you Bill there was been other Deaths. Look up the SL-1 incident though if i remember correctly that too was bad design.

    yes, it was, which is why the Japanese build using the most restrictive building codes in the world....some reporters say that this quake is the worst ever for Japan, and they are wrong unless they say in the last century.

    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.
    how would that happen? considering that there have been no deaths so far, discounting Chernobyl's bad design....

    Yucca Mt. is done, a fork has been stuck in it. NV doesn't want the fuel stored there, so it remains a problem.

    SL1 was a small test reactor from the very early days of nuclear design, not a commercial nuke...
    Rods were manually adjusted, the explosion was a steam explosion due to a rod being pulled up too far, too fast...
    Why the operator did it? who knows?

    Yucca has accepted some waste but the facility won't be completed for another decade.

    I know. Like I said bad design. I was trying make the point that most Nuclear Plant death have been from Bad Design. Also glad to see some one else knows about SL-1. =)

    I support nuclear power and the creation of nuclear power plants.
