  • Why does the government have such a say in who gets to produce what? I don't get it. Allentown is more toxic than a nuclear power plant.

    The more choices that are available, the better. A free market, ah, what a thought. Prices that regulate themselves.

    Let everyone who wants to research and produce energy safely. Our dependence on foreign oil would be zip, and maybe we could actually PRODUCE something and make money here again.

    What a thought. Of course, it would take a whole new Congress not in bed with anyone to have any kind of REAL change.

    Sorry, Obama, you promised, but you can't deliver either.

  • I think we have no choice but to use it until a greener solution is available for widespread use.It's gotten a bad rap.It is safe.

  • Oh it's great, except that they might as well paint giant bullseyes on them. And we don't have anywhere to dispose of the deadly radioactive waste product of it besides burying it underground and hoping nothing gets some hairline cracks to up the radiation in nearby ground water. Oh, and the fact that nobody well let you build one within 20 miles of their house (or 3 miles if they're older).

  • All energy sources are dangerous, but actually when you look at the real numbers, (per-capita) there have been far more deaths and injuries from trying to get coal and oil out of the ground.

    But actually, these days I'm far more interested in the potential of hydrogen power because that is the most plentiful element on the planet. Cars are already being built with hydrogen engines:

    And they are not your wimpy hybrid cars, these things are racing on the salt flats - awesome!
