This is more of sales blurb than a biographical interview.

But got to admit that he is talented and cunning.
Parent - - By Barnard (Bronze) Date 2012-07-26 16:56
Om is right;he is talented (no atomic plant exploded in Belgium/France)

That doesn't work for me. I spent 3 years studying the safety of nuclear power back in the 80's . The issue is what to do with the waste - "A typical reactor will generate 20 to 30 tons of high-level nuclear waste annually. There is no known way to safely dispose of this waste, which remains dangerously radioactive until it naturally decays."

And, uh! Oh!

" The rate of decay of a radioactive isotope is called its half-life, the time in which half the initial amount of atoms present takes to decay. The half-life of Plutonium-239, one particularly lethal component of nuclear waste, is 24,000 years."

Most of these reactors were built to supply  breeder reactors.  Hence, "A new nuclear power plant has not been ordered in the U.S. since 1973."

Didn't/Doesn't France encase it's nuclear waste in glass blocks and store them in some caves somewhere? I think I remember reading that a long time ago.

The US vitrifies the liquid high-level radioactive waste that was a byproduct of the nuclear weapons program, but not the spent fuel from power plants, although both were intended to go to the Yucca Mountain repository in Nevada.

Somewhere, probably, over here!

The Yucca Mountain repository would have worked fine if it weren't for the political overtones. Storing the waste at the generating sites is insane.

well,i love the smell of the radioactivity in the morning... :lol:

The mushroom clouds from many nuclear tests were visible in Las Vegas, yet very few of us are mutants...
Parent - By Barnard (Bronze) Date 2012-07-26 22:58
more people are mutant,than at the first look appears to be... :wink:
