This is concerning America’s nuclear energy plans.

By the way, Dick Cheney has big connections to the nuclear power industry and has been busy re-writing regulatory NRC policies in order to bypass correct procedure and make it easier for companies (his buddies) to obtain licenses to build nuclear reactors.  Anybody see a pattern here?

 “In over 50 years of operating experience, the nuclear industry still has not managed to solve the problems of safety, security, and disposal of highly dangerous radioactive waste.  Until that happens, we’re much better off investing in safer, cleaner energy sources such as renewable wind, geothermal, tidal, and solar projects.”

Jon Block, nuclear energy and climate change project manager for the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS).

  1. Waste in nuclear energy is a problem. Another are the proved facts that leakages can occur. Altogether I believe nuclear energy must be banned much that it can fill up the pockets of people like the mentioned Dick Cheney.

    Clean energies such as wind, the sea, the sun, should be studied, improved and their costs of exploitation reduced down to the minimum.


  2. Yes Jose, all the corrupt politicians know how to pull the political strings when it will benefit them.

    Trouble with embracing nuclear is that investments and research into clean renewables will not be treated with urgency.
