Nuclear power isn't going to provide anything. It's not going to happen. It is a dream, a transhumanist-like dream of technology that will save us from our own excesses and self-destructive tendencies instead of the difficult steps of introspection and a reevaluation of our relationship with the natural world that manchildren like g5jamz are so incapable of considering.

It will provide electricity, dude.

Civilization will continue to grow. We need to both become a lot better at using energy, as well as continuing to create more. Nuclear power has a ton of upside, and the downsides are a lot more controllable than other base load generation methods.

Because we can actually do nuclear power, we know it works, and it is cost efficient?

Is h3 a synonym for that Heroes chick or something? I can see generating a lot of energy from that as well

I'm with ya that nuclear power isn't 'the answer', but what are you getting at? That we should use less power?

My dad's company is in the process of building 2 more nuclear plants, and possibly a third in NC/SC. First one will be up and running in 5 years, 2015 at the latest. The biggest part/expenditure for them is the red tape at DOE. It's pretty much his job, so I'ma gonna believe his timelines for implementation. I asked him the other day why it only took so short a time, I was thinking they were going to use that plant in Gaffney (I think that's where it is) that was half constructed before it was axed. He laughed and said that was a 30 year old design that wouldn't work nowadays, so it's not like that timeline is retrofitting older designs, they're starting from scratch.

You get the cheese from betwixt your toes, and your DVR was purchased for 30 bucks at the pawn shop. Quit trying to BS a BSer.

This post alone (as if you needed more evidence) clearly shows you lack of knowledge on any subject. To call nuclear power a "dream" is beyond a joke.

You have proven over and over to be an ass....but now you have proven to be an ignorant ass.
