VA most people only need a commuter vehicle.

The $127 million (~$400 million in 2012 dollars) in compensation they paid out wasn't enough?

Anyway - there are risks with nuclear power, but nuclear safety has come a long way since 1979. Not that anyone would know it, since practically all of the reactors we have in the US are 1970s-era design.

Why are so many afraid of nuclear tech? Ignorance.

In high school, the most they taught us about nuclear energy was chynobal is the end result. It took me years to accept that nuclear energy can be harnessed without much waste. Further ignorance about the clean up process when something does go bad. And typically things only go bad in two cases. 1) greed. 2) a rush to get the latest and greatest tech out.

We all know that powerful men are prideful and we all know that they are greedy. There for they will place the general public at risk for the bottom line. Worst, when things go wrong, the worst that happens to them are a slap on the wrist.

3mile island was the best example of failing to properly test the reactors for all failures which might occur and greed in design for not making them safer.

This can be said of most nuclear accidents. Accountability against those who would command the reactors is kept low level... When it ought to be life prison sentences for those at the top. A lower branch must suffer the demands of the higher branches and obey those commands or face vein terminated.

So long as nuclear power plants are funded by businesses, the public will not trust them. Why? Because business has had centuries to prove that they will ripe people off for profit. They will not provide and because the public sees businesses in this light... The public rightfully distrust any company to be held accountable.

Before you start bitching about me being a communist or socialist, answer me this. Why wasn't the owners of three mile island made accountable for the simplistic error of not having the right valves and indicators?

When CEOs can be sent to jail for these kinds of mistakes (even if they aren't knowledgable in designing these things...) Accountability would have them demanding that every thing have sensors.

I really don't think electric cars have a great future beyond commuter vehicles. It would require a miracle in battery technology. When I say a miracle, I mean a discovery that would turn the electrochemistry we understand on its ass, as we are bumping up against the theoretical limits of what a battery can do. It's possible, I suppose, but centuries of electrochemical theory has never been successfully challenged. It would be similar to finding out the world really was flat after all. Unless that happens, a lithium battery is almost as good of an electrical storage device as we're ever going to have.

No, I think the best solution for the foreseeable future will be nuclear power for electricity (in some places solar and wind may be competitive) and hydrocarbon fuel (i.e. gas/diesel) for most road vehicles. The hydrocarbon fuel has many diverse sources not currently being exploited, such as coal via Fischer-Tropsch chemistry and garbage via thermal depolymerization, which also serves nicely as a disposal tool for nasty waste material. By the time we could ever run these resources down, they'll be long obsolete.

VA I agree, I just don't understand the fear that the media and politicians have put into nuclear fuel. I know most people don't like the idea of electric cars, but they would be an answer for many people. But we need power for them.

Well, it's moving off topic, but......

While Ford's and Carter's orders were to prevent weapons-usable nuclear material from being diverted, but we're the only country that did that.

Reactors which can burn up the plutonium from spent fuels (and better yet, breed more fuel) exist. Yes, they create some "wild and crazy" heavy isotopes, but those can also be burned up.

We have all the nuclear fuel we could ever possibly need, especially with thorium breeders which will eventually come online. Fossil fuels have a place in the realm of relatively safe and practical fuels for cars etc. It's ludicrous that we're burning them for electricity when we can do it with nuclear fuel, IMHO.

Va:

That sounds about right... Either way, soilless farming is going to make a big splash in the global economy in the coming decades. More so for middle east nations which would be able to feed their people.

If accepted globally, this technology could allow us to provide food for billions more people, with a minimal effect on the global rescources.

I also predict that Germany will become the electricity capital of Europe with their single solar power plants able to out produce 22 nuclear power plants.

Why Germany over most other areas? They have the correct cloud cover vs sunlight levels to make solar power more efficient than any other area.

Sadly direct sunlight isn't as efficient as it was once thought. It heats the panels up way too much and burns the plates out much too quickly to be cost effective.

This is why Germany has barges which are solar powered and produce so much electricity that they feed more into the grid when they dock than they can actually use.

The rest of us are nuclear bound. Sadly due to a presidental order, we the US produce many magnates more nuclear waste than we ought have to.

This presidental order was put into place to control the reuse of nuclear waste into domestic civilian uses like x-ray machines and other. (like most other nations reuse their waste for)

This doesn't mean that we wouldn't build up waste, just that we could reduce waste and build it up at a slower rate.

Yes and no. Certainly not similar enough now, but could be in the future.

The major advantage of a transplantation from a donor animal is that they are available when you need them, rather than having to wait to grow a donor (whatever), which might still fail on transplantation.

Over time, muscle and connective tissue gets replaced with your own. It would only be pig/whatever muscle for a period of time, enough to regrow your own in its place.

Va:

Xenotransplantation is a great science for growing organs, but I do not see how one can obtain a muscle group from a pig. Are both of our muscles that similar?
