No one religion should be in schools. JUDAISM! Read it, truly understand it and be surprised.

The fartman is all on board for nuclear power. Eat lots of beans and chimichanga's. This will produce less waste than fossil fuel. lol

Their is a difference between teaching religion and teaching a religion. As such, concerned specifically mentioned a bible, to teach religion you wouldn't teach just a bible. The curriculum would need to convey the historical interaction and growth of religion from the earliest stories and their evolution into the different sects of the world. You would have a Western Torah/Bible/Koran based religion where the different players have been at each others throats for thousands of years. There would be a Eastern religions, with the philosophers.
You would have to study how western religions overwhelm and destroy pagan, native and aboriginal religions and society. There would be very little time for Jeasus Christ.

<quoted text>I oppose wind and solar power in favor of fossil fuel power, wind and solar make too much pollution per Watt. Manufacture, installation, maintenance, repair, upgrade, replacement and disposal all create dangerous waste. Wind and solar are inefficient because they produce small amounts of electricity and production varies greatly over time. I need electricity when I turn a switch, not when the wind blows of sun is up. Wind power slaughters flying things and solar shades the flowers. I don't see the green, unless you mean government incentives.
Absolutely Correct... The only thing green about the green movement is the color of the money that flows like water from the poor to the rich as they jet to Cancun or Amsterdam or a dozen other meeting places where they sip fine wine and eat caviar while sharing a hot tub and lavish air conditioned suites.... While villages of people sit in mud huts wishing they had a single power line to light their world as they starve and die of thirst because they don't have power to pump water to drink and grow food.... While billions of poor people spend ever more of their money for power, cars, goods and services to pay for those green projects that make folks like Al Gore multimillionaires... The Green Movement is today a Religion.. with it's Priests, Clergy and Followers that Believe.. Good Gia Almighty... They Believe... As the Clergy in their fine robes and gold gilded mansions pass the plate the followers go forth and collect from the masses, by force if needed....

Read Matthew 6:9,10 and find the solution to mankinds problems, GOD'S KINGDOM! When that prayer is answered then all of our problems will be solved.
Jeremiah 10:23 Man cannot direct his own steps...much less solve mankinds problems! Only God by means of his Kingdom can solve all of our problems!

Yes, you are correct. We have 65 plants, according to Wiki. What I meant to suggest was that we need more. There is a public fear of these plants that curtails our desire to build them. Yet they are far more efficient and cost effective than traditional plants. If you think a nuclear plant has a high cost just compare it to a traditional plant cranking out the same energy. It is off the charts.
I don't understand the rest of your post. WTF are you talking about?
It's expensive
" Higher capital costs due to safety, emergency, containment, radioactive waste, and storage systems

Problem of long-term storage of radioactive waste

Heated waste water from nuclear plants harms aquatic life

Potential nuclear proliferation issue "...
----------

In March 2011, the approx. US $ cost to get 1 kg of uranium as UO2 reactor fuel (at current spot uranium price):
At 45,000 MWd/t burn-up this gives 360,000 kWh electrical per kg, hence fuel cost: 0.77 c/kWh.

"Most efficiency improvements have been priced at 1 to 3 per kilowatt-hour, while new nuclear energy is on track to cost 15 to 20 per kilowatt-hour. And no nuclear plant has ever been completed on budget."

Your other post was fully of typos and oddly phrased sentences. Thank you for typing one that makes more sense.

Your source is most likely heavily biased. That dose not make it invalid, but it does put up a red flag.

I'm not an expert but I have looked into this a little bit over the years. My understanding is that nuclear power plants are far, far more efficient than traditional plants. There is the question of huge start up costs, but those costs would be diminished if we built more plants.

There is also the question of storing waste. I agree that is a major concern, but I do not think it is a show stopper. Nuclear plants generate less waste than traditional plants and are far easier on the environment. Also the energy saved in transporting fuel alone is pretty staggering.

There are numerous benefits to nuclear energy. And there are major obstacles as well. I personally think it is worth it, but I can understand peoples' concerns.

Like any controversial subject you need to read widely and listen to varying points of view in order to get a sense of where the truth probably lies. If you look at sources that are overtly anti-nuclear you are not going to get a clear picture. Look at the science, look at the history.

I'm on board with alternative energy sources, if they can promise more bang-for-buck. Nuclear has the biggest bang (pardon the pun). I think coal is simply not sustainable, and it is damaging to our environment to mine and use it. I'm not convinced that wind is worth the effort, but the jury is still out. Solar would be awesome, perhaps best, but the technology has to advance by orders of magnitude first. We need the friggin' lunar surface to be one giant solar panel.

One of the biggest requirements, is adequate water supply.

Some states, just DO NOT offer that as far as natural resources go.

The lunar surface is NEVER going to be that, so get over it already...there's enough INEFFICIENCY draining the pockets of duh givverment already.
