>>7788295 >Less radioactive material produced >Less need for coolants >Can pull the switch safely when shit gets overheated You tell me why thorium isn't the answer for everything It's all you fucking muh defense assholes that are preventing this, but...but muh plutonium supply, muh nuclear arsenal.
>>7788334 No conclusive answer, have promise, find conclusive answer, isn't this research? Aren't we fucking finding answers for our problems with research not fucking sitting there and say there's no answer.
>>7788358 Fusion is a meme that is intended for a fucking superweapon, fission centre using heat generated to cause fusion, the fucking radius is so larger that it can potentially swallow Tokyo and many surrounding cities around it.
>>7788364 Well fission is still a weapon, the waste just comes out the barrels of guns now, making electricity with it is just a by product of weapons research really. Monkeys shouldn't even be playing with any of it until religion and the occult grip on it is exterminated from the face of earth.
Power coming out of plants that have been operating for nearly half a century isn't as safe, but as people are against building that many new ones we don't have much choice but to run them as far into the ground as we dare.
>those new french-designed chinese-built quick-built reactors that have a giant water tower above the reactor that will gravity-feed coolant into the core for 36 hours after a SCRAM what a clever and seemingly foolproof idea. how will china fuck it up?
>>7788753 im glad nuclear power is expanding worldwide, but im a bit worried about china leading the way. the US has 4 AP1000 reactors currently under construction as well, so hopefully their operations go on without happenstance
Its been safe for years. JUst look a Fukashima. A ricter 9 earthquake and tsunami hi it and it only caused a very small quantity of oil to be leaked. If that was an oil plant, much greater damage would have been done.
As long as we carefully overlook - chemical hazards in mining and making fuel - chemical and radiological hazards in recycling waste - problems in finding safe storage for waste that will be safe for thousands of years ... that will be very obviously terrorist baits - cost of decomissioning a reactor ... where the core will be highly radioactive for a long, long time ......... and far too big to bury somewhere
>>7788961 >chemical and radiological hazards in recycling waste we dont recycle waste in the US >problems in finding safe storage for waste that will be safe for thousands of years those problems are only of a political nature
>>7788753 By having an accident lasting 36 1/2 hours. 36 hours is actually pretty shitty for a modern design. Modern GE and Westinghouse designs would be able to go 72 hours with no operator input.
Of course my personally I advocate for molten salt fuel reactors. Reactor overheats? Fuel leaves the core and is no longer critical. Still too hot? Freeze Plug melts and drains the fuel into emergency containment tanks.
>>7788961 >chemical hazards in mining and making fuel Exists in plenty of other industries and is easily controlled. >chemical and radiological hazards in recycling waste see above >problems in finding safe storage for waste that will be safe for thousands of years The waste "problem" was solved decades ago, despite what Greenpeace claims. >that will be very obviously terrorist baits See above >cost of decomissioning a reactor Several dozen civilian reactors in the US have already been decommissioned plus hundreds of military reactors. >where the core will be highly radioactive for a long, long time and far too big to bury somewhere The fuel rods are the core, retard
