[Reuters] Germany to shut down pre-1980 nuclear plants. - Page 10

post #91 of 95
Atleast in areas where earthquakes are not a problem, nuclear power is hardly unsafe, infact, more dangerous is the part where you have to move the waste to underground storing facilities.

As far as im aware they use trains in USA and if that thing derails (which it has) it can have some nasty consequences, though they have improved the process too, again, as far as i know, they dont allow another train to travel past them to opposite direction, and the waste is stored in containers that can take some punishment.

I think Nuclear power for energy is fine, but when the governments in question have access to the materials, Nuclear warheads are 1 step away..


But again, that's my opinion.

It's not that simple, they still need to purify the uranium.

Electricity - imports (million kWh) 200942870

Electricity - exports (million kWh) 200962310

We sell more energy then we do buy. We only need more highpower cables and some pumped storage plant´s to go more on renewable. And that costs $$$ and thats why the Big Bosses cry need more investments and less shortterm revenue, so the stocks go down biggrin.gif.

I'm not saying it's not going to happen because as far as power generation goes it does make a lot of sense but we are still quite a ways away from that.

If you have a superconducting material to transmit your electricity, the point of generation can be anywhere. You can build a global energy grid, many times more fault-tolerant than the Internet; you can build solar farms in every equatorial nation on the planet, so you're always generating power somewhere; and you can transmit that energy to wherever it's needed, any time of day.

(No, you can't depend solely on solar power for the world's electrical needs. You need to keep other methods of generation available as backups and boosters. But even with coal or nuclear, if you can move the generation point away from the population centers, you've made huge strides toward increasing safety and reducing pollution.)

What we gotta do is build a Dyson's sphere!
