You are right I believe...

The momentum drops the same in both cases but total force of colision gets doubled in the head on crash...the total force of the collosion is measured by the time it takes for the the two objects to reach zero momentum.

As far as passengers and cargo of the collision...it doesn't matter which. They are not part of the collision and will continue going forward at 60mph untill they have their own little collision with pieces of their vehicles or the road or what ever they hit; when they hit it will be with a force of 60mph and not 120mph. The two trucks will feel 120mph at the point of impact, but nothing else will.

I'm sure Germany has something up their sleeve.

Cold Fusion?

Yep, they are gonna buy power from France (hint: France has a lot of nuclear power plants).

Salt based Thorium reactors. Just because we "needed" the weapons-grade byproducts in the 60s/70s when we made the big Uranium push doesn't mean we need them now.

Or, more recently:

TL;DR/Watch:
Salt based reactors are not pressurized, cool themselves, and don't require an active power source or human intervention to remain stable or to power down in an emergency situation, they use a more abundant fuel source, and utilize more of the fuel source with less byproducts and less radioactivity from the byproducts, all while producing more energy. Thorium can even be mined and used on the moon, for lunar colonization.

I don't know much about geology, but using my 9th standard geology knowledge, I have a question.

Is there any sense in removing nuclear plants from places which are not prone to great natural disasters? I mean removing nuclear plants from places (a place in ring of fire) makes sense, but why this?

Excuse me if my question is too dumb.

The idea is to take them someplace completely geologically stable that won't suffer from any major tectonic activity for hundreds of thousands or millions of years. So the middle of craton, usually.

Germany does not look too bad to put one in.

Also, can we not put like 200 nuclear reactors in the middle of russia?

The problem with that is big powerlines cost at least US $1million for every mile.

How close? Water can be pumped in from rivers or welled from groundwater.

Care to elaborate more? What pollution do you speak of? How many people have died from oil pollution?

You are misinformed.

The US produces more wind energy than Germany despite having less turbines.(Its windier here due to a large percentage of our country being closer to the equator).

Not only that, but of the 400+ nuclear power plants throughout the world, we have the most by a significant margin at 100+ plants, the most being on the east coast.

I find it funny that everyone likes to complain that Americans aren't accepting of nuclear power yet we have the most of any other country on earth by a significant amount.

Shameless plug: Texas produces the most wind energy of any single state/province on earth.

Traveling on our highways, I have witnessed these massive trucks hauling these massive turbine blades and they are an awesome sight to behold given their size.

They look small:



But they're massive:
