I've always been a fan of nuclear power. The only real risk now-a-days is people getting pissed at the site of a reactor (which I don't find all that unattractive) and capital investment. Particularly now that we have Generation IV Reactors coming out that can use waste from older power plants as fuel. Nothing to steal? Nothing to pollute? Clean, free, energy?

Just a shame that United States citizens were scared off by a few incidents, which were largely human error and experimentation, and some green groups that forgot to mention how coal and gas put out more radioactive / toxic material per year. Oh yeah, and they spew it in the air. Not into molten pellets.
Wasn't obama anti nuclear?

When will people realise Nuclear is the only way forward...

Who cares about the nuclear waste. Our grandkids will figure it out...

Biofuels do have great potential, but corn is an absolutely horrible source for biofuel. Low yield, seasonal, and it is a food source...

Algae, cyanobacteria, and engineered bacterial biofuels are the way to go. However these are still a ways off. I think these are the real technologies of the future.

the real energy tech of the future is fusion. chemical based energy can go away after that.

Yeah but that is still science fiction at this point. We can get fusion reactors to run but they are so damn hot that they will melt themselves in a matter of minutes. Fusion hasn't even been able to break even by generating more energy than it took to kick off the fusion reaction yet.

Once scientists at least break even on a single reaction I will have more hope for fusion.

Sadly we can't use it here cause of Green (peace?< fueled by some evil companies probably) when you ask them what is the risk when you take the precautions THEY start to shout at you !! wish everyone can get the idea thanks for the news

Algae is the best option i agree, IT COSTS ALMOST nothing to grow.
