Why we can & should say say no to nuclear fission power.
$50 Billion for a new group of dirty nuclear plants
http://www.commondreams.org/he.....10/02/25-4

Or

We can pay $3 Billion and in three years have clean Enhanced Geothermal Power and have it become as cheap as coal in three years with enough to power the USA for 30000 years
http://solveclimate.com/blog/20090724/r ... -3-billion

I suggest we tell our congress people to say NO to Nuclear Fission plants.

I completely agree.
I don't understand people..people who claim to be FOR the health of the planet calling for more nuclear power plants. Ddo people NOT realize that nuclear power plants creat nuclear waste??!! (with a uranium half life..this stuff poisons for a LONG time)
Do they not remember Three Mile Island? Chernobyl?
Have they not heard the term "China Syndrome"????
It's insane.

No..nuclear energy is NOT 'clean' energy..it comes with a heavy price..there are other options

the truth is we are all so addicted to electricity..we use stuff that doesn't even need to be elctronic..is..an example..an electric can opener? I mean, really? Unless you have severe arthritus I don't see the point.

I swear..if some kind of eent happened that destroyed the grid..people would be lost.

Maybe if we tried to save energy in litte ways it could add up?
I've decided everything needs to come with a hand crank option (small appliances and such)

Word to the wise hand crank generators won't work in an EMP zone, the EMP scrambles the poles on magnets, so they need re magnetizing. Best bet is electrochemical.

I'd say we should just go back to the caveman days and go with campfires and that's it... but... that won't work because the poor trees would get hurt.

Maybe we should just wipe ourselves off the planet and let it heal. Humanity is completely important in comparison to Mother Earth... right?

Ok, who wants to start us off. How shall we do this. Russian Roulette? Lottery? Who dies first.

Koombaya everyone, have a great day.

putting aside the pollution concerns, and we still have a cost effectiveness issue here which puts nuclear fission to shame. Admittedly the cost of coal energy is only about 80 cents less per MW/hr but both of those rely on fuel transportation supply lines and the variables that go into that including coming from enemy nations. EGT is something that can be done anywhere outside the danger zone of a fault line.

Furthermore, the West can lead by example which is critically impoertant for global security. Look at Iran, if it were possible to find a safe place to build an EGT Plant, we could say "look we have concerns about your nuclear program, and we'd like to offer you EGT of equivelent or double your proposed nuclear output in exchange for abandoning, look how much it is doing for US. We're getting 30000 years of electricity with less danger."

Nikola Tesla had the answer over 100 years ago, but it was stolen and suppressed so that the big corporations wouldn't lose any money.

Aquatank..
Yeah, Ii know an electro magnetic pulse would destroy even hand cranked stuff..I was actually changing subjects, there..but not well..it sort of ran together.

You have a good idea with the battery idea

We all need to start thinking of keeping very needed electronic technology..hand cranked (or battery operated) in an aluminum box or something..for back up..just ..in case

Maybe car engines and computers, etc..should be housed in aluminum..would that protect them?

anyhoo..
Frostedman..
You are a Christian, right? One of the most basic tenents of Christianity is the understanding that one of the reasons God placed us here is to respect and watch over the earth and the animals upon it.
Genisis 2:15
"The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it."
I could even go further and say part of being "fallen" is the selfish urge to use the earth as we like..with no respect..our planet, our home..that the Lord God gifted to us...anyone on the true path, I feel would want to rise above that fallen urge.
But deep in your heart..you know this.

Plus..it's just common sense.."don't shite where you eat"

I'm not a "nazi greeno" but even I understand tipping points and fish bowls (even planet sized ones) and basic crap like that.

Ninor..
Elaborate, please? I love Tesla stuff.

Wish it was that simple, Magnetism goes through everything, there are no materials that can block it. The best that one can do is get the right materials to re-route its flow around what is being protected.

Tesla also came up with geothermal energy as well. Hardly surpressed he wrote an article on called "Our Future Motive Power" in Everyday Science and Mechanics in 1931 with a similar piece in the New York Times.

Whats apparent is that Nuclear always sounded neato to the government especially since it had weapons applications. Maybe the feds want nuclear just so the can have a future supply of DU weapons.

Nikola Tesla was a super genius that is responsible for inventing everything from AC power systems to wireless remote control technology, x-ray technology, radio and radar. His Wardenclyffe Tower project, if it had been allowed to come to full operating status (the government/military killed it and dismantled it) was designed not only to provide wireless communications, but wireless power transmission.
