Nuclear power, at least nuclear power generated through nuclear fission , is a technological deadend and a very dangerous way to boil water.
Someone seems to be removing my comments? I'm not that smart so I obviously cannot be endangering the future of mankind through blog responses (or, perhaps I imagined responding).
But, to repeat, but it's a heck of a way to provide efficient, clean electricity. If we could just deal with those pesky fuel rods.
Bryant, Look outside.Do you see the two guys with crew cuts wearing sunglasses and cheap suits? They just got a parabolic microphone out of that black Crown Vic.
Dont forget what happens when the water starts to boil. Steam Power! Nuclear power is the best thing going when it comes to genarating massive amonts of energy. Heck thats all Iran wants..
If you choose to believe that's all Iran wants, then good for you.
I am more skeptical than that. Why would such an oil rich nation choose to use a competing energy source? Usually nations who develop nuclear power plants need to supplement a massive power grid, or they have no natural resources of their own to draw upon. Iran does not have a massive power grid and they have ample natural resources.
One reason might be that nuclear power is a great clean energy source far better than any oil. With all the enviromental laws hindering Iran these days.
What environment laws hinder Iran?
Based on my (limited) knowledge of Iran, I suspect a person caught violating pollution laws (if there are any) would be lightly punished or not punished at all.
If Iran does not have environment laws then the USA should go and impose them. Maybe if we can get the people to see that this world needs environmental protection then we could have the right cause to fight the radical Iranian government.
I just gave your last comment 15 seconds of attention, because I needed to read it twice to be sure I understood the lunacy.
I gave it 13 seconds more attention than it deserved.
That's just stupid....
I'll take the 2 seconds and rase you another 13. Its about as stupid as allowing them to have nuclear power.
