Even if they could prove its man made, nobody is going to regulate the monoplies we have on this globe in a market that is not free and really never was. Who do you assholes think is going to have to pay or sacrifice their wealth and freedom to "cool" the globe???:-$

If you can read, read this. I know it's the NYTimes a notoriously left/right wing rag. All lies because it's not funded by Chevron.
no but its owned by the same banks and they are in the same special club chevron is in. Its called the c.f.r. and they publicly state they try to meet with many other big corporations to try to cherry pick the news to "shape" public opinion of foreign policy. Many member corporations are not american. Many big money beltway politicians are also members. Just saying that they all meet together!

Excuse me?

You think I'm anti-nuke? Guess again. I've only tried to get you to be realistic about politics & lead times.

Yes, we do need modern nuclear plants - but that will take time. In the meantime, conservation is faster.

Right now, the barriers to nuclear are financial. No utility wants to commit to building a plant if they can't predict the market 20 years from now. It'd require leadership. Also a carbon tax to get people to understand the TRUE cost of burning Ffs.

Just look how pathetic you doomers are now:
*Occupywallstreet does not even mention CO2 in its list of demands because of the bank-funded carbon trading stock markets ruled by corporations and trustworthy politicians.
*Obama has not mentioned the crisis in the last two State of the Unions addresses.
*In all of the debates Obama hadnít planned to mention climate change once.
*Julian Assange is of course a climate change denier.
*Canada killed Y2Kyoto with a freely elected climate change denying prime minister and nobody cared, especially the millions of scientists warning us of unstoppable warming (a comet hit).

And the need to explain to people how Chernobyl and Fukushima were just flukey accidents and it 'can't happen here'.....:(

It won't matter until it's too late, then scumbags like you will be crying your eyes out and blaming scientists and government for doing nothing.

That'll be the ONE funny thing about runaway global warming...

Well-said.

Poster unready-nanowatt praises a nonexistent "modern" reactor with unknown safety record. He loves it so much that he lashes out at scientists for not agreeing with him.

LOL.

And every source I've read (not connected to the nuclear industry), says it will cost more to decommission them (even inflation adjusted) than it did to bring them on line.

The latest word I heard about Fukishima was that it would take thirty years to clean it completely up.

How cheap is that?
