>claim to support green energy
>opposes nuclear energy which is the best green power
dont tell me there are actual greenfags that believe this.
idk about Europe, but there are a ton of "environmentalist" types that thing Climate Change will kill us all in 2020 if we don't do something NOW but think nuclear power is a terrible idea
i've seen liberals flip their shit over proposals to store nuclear waste inside remote mountain ranges, hundreds of miles from where anyone lives.
all 'cause some native american once got high on peyote there and declared the land sacred.
It's mostly due to misinformation propagated by the oil industry. They scaremonger and the useful idiots that are liberals and environmentalists eat it all up. They're useful idiots. They don't realize that only nuclear had the capacity to produce the energy we need and in a much cleaner way. Storing the waste isn't even a big deal if efficient and modern reactors are used, not to mention that radiation caused by reactors on the area around them is negligible or nonexistent.
That was a shitty reactor design and was awfully maintained. They knew ahead of time it was going to meltdown they just didn't try to stop it. Environmental radiation in Chernobyl is normal now, by the way.
Same thing here. We could have pits in the outback, safely sealed for 10,000 years, for the world's nuclear waste, which we could charge rent for. If you have any grasp of the sheer scale of the outback you'd think it was a good idea.
But instead the entire red centre is "sacred" somehow, even though most of it is so inhospitible that the abos never actually lived there.
so instead of a location guaranteed to be geologically stable for the lifetime of the waste, American power plants are stuck storing their used fuel rods on site, usually next to major waterways, in cooling tanks which require constant power to remove decay heat
lots more secure.
>Fear and misinformation is what killed it.
and Harry fucking Reid
The best green power is Solar. It's cheap, requires very little maintenance and has great output. Maybe for high density areas I could see them building Thorium reactors to replace fossil fuels, it just needs some more research.
>tritium leaks are clean
>guaranteed local cancer
>beta particles from tritium decay are extremely low energy
>extremely low energy
>The reactor successfully produced helium plasma (with temperatures of about 1×106 K) for about 0.1 s on 10 December 2015. For this initial test with about 1 mg of helium gas injected into the evacuated plasma vessel, microwave heating was applied for a short 1.3 MW pulse. Initial tests with hydrogen plasma are planned for early 2016, and the operational phase 1 (OP-1) is expected in 2016.
Can we store all the reactor waste in your country? If we can, then I'm all for switching to nuclear power.
>tfw you'll never get a post-apocalyptic razor jungle built around waste facility to prevent the stone age people that survive from disturbing it
We already have a perfectly safe place to store nuclear waste: Yucca Mountain. This piece of land has been geologically surveyed more than any other place on Earth, so we know it is safe, and it has enough room for all the waste. The only problem is delayed implementation because of hysterical people like you.
Stop holding the human race back from achieving its atomic destiny.
No, if OP thinks it's safe then why can't we just give them all the waste? Why do we have to marr American land with this poison if he's willing to take it? And if not, why? If nuclear power is perfect and without any problems then you shouldn't object to a few thousand spent rods sleeping in the womb of their clay rather than mine.
I doubt they truly care (they think they care because of the conditioning) they are the same people who will be vegans just because it make them feel superior, they are contrarians and the worst kind of hipsters.
Then we don't need to make it any worse. Put it somewhere else, in another country that likes nuclear power. Hell we'll even pay them, or just take it as compensation for decades of protection during the Cold War.
It won't happen until the oil runs out. Oil lobby too strong, and the US isn't seriously interested in supplanting oil since the petrodollar is how we keep our money the defacto global currency.
fukushima was nuked by the jew
jew company recently installed giant "security cameras" shaped exactly like shotgun nukes
reactor blew up that had no fuel in it
theyre made to withstand the force of a runaway nuclear reaction
Why can't we just nuke the Jews
i mean if our military is as powerful as people say it is we should be able to fuck shit up and stop these good for nothing jews before they take over
The people that do both usually live comfy as fuck lives in something like that.
>Why can't i just kill Darth Sidious
i mean if my force is as powerful as people say it is i should be able to fuck shit up and stop these good for nothing siths before they take over
The magic Jew invented propaganda. An invisible force that no one can see but it kills you.
Made up bullshit.
I've been in chernoybls reactor room. Nothing fucking there.
The two are not even conflicting interests, nuclear generated electricity does not drive cars, in fact it takes a shitload of oil to build and run a nuke plant, sometimes pump jacks run on the juice. You also need a shitload of oil to dig up the radioactive rocks and refine them, move them to the reactors and then move the waste out somewhere.
Oil will not run out, it will get very expensive though. Why are most people so retarded when it comes to basic energy science in the 21st century? They think technology is an energy source when it's an energy sink, they think some magical replacement for oil will suddenly materialize out of thin air, they think electrical grids and internal combustion engines are interchangeable. It will end badly.
It does not matter. We are human. If it is physically possible, we will do it. What used to be our predators now go fetch the ball to divert us. The all powerful fire is now our bitch. We use volcanoes to get warm showers. We can fucking tame the sun and place it in a mouse wheel.
>dumping all of our nuclear waste in australia
>fucking mutant spiders, snakes, scorpians and kangaroos
no thank you
But seriously people pretend like this is SO much waste that can't possibly be stored or contained. What's funny is that coalplants produce nuclear waste as well
