Fukushima was a lousy design because the emergency generators were subject to flooding.

Exactamundo!!

nothing funnier than to watch these hateful idiots turn on their own candidates after their fall from grace!!

This is why Repugnants can't win going forward. They are engaged in a Civil War that rivals the one in Syria!!

They cannibalize their own!!

The plants at Fukushima exceeded design capability, the problems were caused by operator error, something Tepco has admitted to.

Next generation designs rely even less on operator interference.

In the end, one person was killed by the [intentional] accident at Fukushima and that death was from falling debris.

How many coal miners were killed in that accident a couple of years ago? Where was that again?

Look around you, is their anything near you that isn't at least partially composed of petroleum product or that petroleum products (other than as an energy source) were used their manufacture?
In the near future when petroleum based energy has been replaced by better technology there's still gonna be a big demand for oil.
They always forget that part. All they think is oil=gas. Never accrues to them that almost everything in their life oil had a hand in it's making.

Name one reliable alternative energy source that has is practical, economical, has widespread applicability, and is available 24/7.
What about nuclear power?
Nuclear power is a non starter. Even Repugnants are against it!! DUH

When all is said and done, nuclear power is far more expensive per kw than any other power source, but that's way over your retarded level of comprehension.

Only idiots like you believe it has a future. But then, you live in the 1950's.

Meanwhile, back in realityland:

""Renewable energy is energy that comes from resources which are continually replenished such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat. About 16% of global final energy consumption comes from renewable resources, with 10%[discuss] of all energy from traditional biomass, mainly used for heating, and 3.4% from hydroelectricity. New renewables (small hydro, modern biomass, wind, solar, geothermal, and biofuels) accounted for another 3% and are growing very rapidly. The share of renewables in electricity generation is around 19%, with 16% of electricity coming from hydroelectricity and 3% from new renewables.""

Wind power is growing at the rate of 30% annually, with a worldwide installed capacity of 282,482 megawatts (MW) at the end of 2012, and is widely used in Europe, Asia, and the United States. At the end of 2012 the photovoltaic (PV) capacity worldwide was 100,000 MW, and PV power stations are popular in Germany and Italy. Solar thermal power stations operate in the USA and Spain, and the largest of these is the 354 MW SEGS power plant in the Mojave Desert. The world's largest geothermal power installation is The Geysers in California, with a rated capacity of 750 MW. Brazil has one of the largest renewable energy programs in the world""

----------

So hydro is not 24/7?? Wind power is not 24/7?? Tidal power is not 24/7??

You seem to think saying stupid things somehow enhances your obvious ignorance.

21 Facts About NSA Snooping That Every American Should Know

There seems to be a lot of confusion about what the NSA is actually doing. Are they reading our emails? Are they listening to our telephone calls? Do they target American citizens or is it only foreigners that they are targeting? Unfortunately, the truth is that we aren’t going to get straight answers from our leaders about this. The folks running the NSA have already shown that they are willing to flat out lie to Congress, and Barack Obama doesn’t exactly have the greatest track record when it comes to telling the truth. These are men that play word games and tell lies for a living. So it would be unrealistic to expect them to come out and tell us the unvarnished truth about what is going on. That is why it is so important that whistleblowers such as Edward Snowden have come forward. Thanks to them and to the brave journalists that are willing to look into these things, we have been able to get some glimpses behind the curtain. And what we have learned is not very pretty. The following are 21 facts about NSA snooping that every American should know…(Read More.....)

The reality is that low natural gas prices have been the principle factor undermining the nuclear renaissance. Converting existing fossil plants to NG is just more viable in the short term. Its the long term that is being ignored.
The long term when supply and demand are equalized and the prices of NG goes up.

The second issue is fracking creates sulfur which must be removed prior to NG being used. This is creating a new pollution.

Natural gas is too valuable as a resource, regardless of current price, to be burned as fuel for power over the long-term.

Natural gas is the obvious bridge fuel for a transition to increased use of nuclear energy.

Converting existing fossil plants to NG (compared to constructing new NG plants) is often based on siting issues rather than economics.

She's another emotionally overwrought old biddy, ala Carol. Went into mentalpause during the Reagan Administration!! LOL

They want their privacy respected, but have no problem with interfering in other American's rights, in spite of Constitutional protections for abortion.
