Oh crap, I just got a vision of these huge guys in suits called the Emo Harvesters that barge into people's house grabbing emo kids, throwing them into a truck, and taking them to live in a power plant.

[QUOTE=Neolk;17614616]Nuclear power plants are dangerous if not regulated, and the more there are the less easy it is to regulate them, besides,15% of our electricity already comes from them. Theres a three pronged problem with your idea. 1.) Uranium -2whatever is the only type of uranium that can be used for nuclear power. That means it isn't renewable. Yes, you can use nuclear reprocessing to turn some of the older stuff into a barely workable form again, but once you use it you can't go back. 2.) Uranium is extremely radioactive, so they store used uranium in a giant hold underwater. However, this is just filling up space, just putting the shit we take out back into the ground. It's like a landfill if radioactive mush. 3.) If a terrorist attacks a nuclear plant, its like they just set off an atomic bomb.[/QUOTE] Well in that case we oughta shut down gas stations. 1.) Gasoline is not renewable. Once you use all of what's in your tank, you may be able to siphon out some older stuff, but it's hardly workable. 2.) Gasoline is extremely flammable, so they store it in places where cars drive dangerously close to. However, this is just filling up space, just putting the shit we take out back into the ground. It's like a landfill of gasoline. 3.) If a terrorist attacks a gas station, it's like they just set off a large firebomb.

I would have rated you it. 1) U-235, or Uranium 235 for you ignorant ones, is the Isotope they use for most nuclear uses, be it bombs or power. And despite being nonrenewable, There's enough of it left in the earth to last us a good thousand years or so. It also helps that the shit has a half life of about four-and-a-half [I]billion [/I]years. 2)That's not how they store it. It's buried deep underground, preferably inside solid granite rock. Lookup "Yucca Mountain." 3)I recall reading that the outer casing of a nuclear reactor is thicker than the walls of most military bunkers. Something like twenty feet of layered steel and reinforced concrete to contain radiation in the core. Not much of a chance for a plane to break through that is there? 4)Stop reading Greenpeace for your information needs. They're uninformed idiots. 5)Also, there's something called the NRC, or "Nuclear Regulatory Commission." Pretty well-funded too, you should look it up. 6) That is all. [editline]11:24PM[/editline] [QUOTE=GunFox;17617283]1) Uranium isn't the only source of energy. There are several suitable radioactive sources available. There is a type of reactor called a "breeder" reactor, which actually PRODUCES more radioactive material (fissile) than it consumes. The material is produces, with basic refinement, can then be used as a power source. Yes. We can MAKE fuel by USING fuel. Are you starting to understand why this is fucking awesome? Beyond that, the Indians actually have a program nearing completion to use Thorium in place of Uranium, Plutonium, or other less common elements. Thorium is relatively easy to obtain and there is substantially more of it available than Uranium. 2) The spent fuel material will eventually be sent to a massive underground vault being constructed inside a mountain in the Midwest. It is specifically designed to safely house radioactive waste and is far outside the water table. The problem however is funding. People don't like that radioactive material would be shipped so far and it has severely damaged the progression of the project. Never mind the fact that the storage tanks they ship them in are so obscenely resilient that a rocket powered train wreck couldn't even dent them. Seriously. They tried. Multiple times. Same tank. 3) NO NO NO AND NO. First of all, we currently have power plants literally from the 60's and 70's. They have been retrofitted to be nearly impossible to make even go close to critical. MODERN designs (The French apparently in particular have some cool ones) make it impossible without substantial intentional modifications. Plus a terrorist attack on a power plant would require a substantial force capable of overwhelming the on site armed security. Yes. They have security forces. Generally assault rifle toting private security forces are garrisoned there. And then once they have overwhelmed the security guards, they have to get into the plant, past the guards, and do their dirty deed before the police arrive MINUTES later. Or if it is determined that they mean to do something REALLY naughty, the alert fighters stationed nearby are scrambled to destroy the place with an airstrike. Again, yes, there are fighter aircraft on the tarmac at all times waiting. And no, destroying the plant in an airstrike would not cause some giant nuclear detonation. It would likely incinerate just about anything that escaped. Or if that was above your head, how about the simple fact that I'm not going to change my life because of terrorists? IF YOU CHANGE YOUR LIFE BECAUSE OF TERRORISM, THEN THEY HAVE WON. THAT WAS THE GOAL. It's in the NAME. TERRORism. The point is to spread fear. Terror even. I don't know why I even bother. No matter how many times I explain it, nobody ever understands it. [editline]12:28PM[/editline] Yeah read above. We actually used to have experimental reactors doing just that. Breeder reactors intentionally make their waste usable. Effectively producing more material which can be used for energy. In fact weapons grade plutonium can be generated as one of the possible waste types for thermal neutron reactor breeders. The bulk of plutonium used in weapons comes from just that. The United States had a couple of breeder reactors for that purpose.[/QUOTE] Gunfox is badass.

[QUOTE=GunFox;17614577]No, you want to help the environment? Turn on more lights. Yes, you heard me. Consume so goddamn much power that they are forced to construct nuclear power plants. Tah dah, near infinite clean energy. I refuse to take a step back technologically because some fucking dipshit hippies who don't understand the difference between nuclear warheads and nuclear power plants block the proliferation of nuclear energy. So I'm going to be the most wasteful prick possible until they shut the fuck up and allow real green energy through. Hydro electric obliterates river ecosystems and wind turbines kill all kinds of birds all day long and then continue to murder bats by night. Solar panels require massive massive amounts of empty land to produce even remotely useful amounts of energy effectively destroying a much larger footprint. Not that I really give a shit if some fish die or birds get turned into nuggets. I'm just pointing out that comparatively, nuclear energy does none of these things. If we could finally move forward, nuclear waste would all be stored in a single location for the entire united states, the place has been under construction for years now. The nuclear power plants take up relatively small amounts of space and only need a supply of water to run. And no, they don't produce radioactive chemicals into the surrounding area. Coal plants however spew out substantial amounts of radioactive material into the atmosphere. And no, radioactive waste is generally not useful for a bomb. There are breeder reactors which produce weapons grade material, but that was intentional. Yes, you can make a dirty bomb. No dirty bombs actually aren't all that dangerous. The explosive used to disperse the dirty bomb would kill ten fold the number of people the radiation could even give mild radiation sickness to. And generally the explosion isn't actually going to kill much of anyone.[/QUOTE] I never thought of it like that. Thank you sir.

I agree with GunFox up to the point of storage of nuclear waste. The thing is the storage sites of nuclear waste have to stay intact for hundreds of years without a lot of maintenance because they're simply inaccessible for maintenance work. The thing is, there only has to be a small crack in the storage containers and/or storage facility and absolutely massive amounts of soil and ground water can be severally contaminated. The problem isn't the radioactivity, it's the toxicity.
