BuckerOfire, weren't you told to keep yourself in a closet for a year?
#4694 Mar 6, 2012
the one problem with your arguement??
about it being safely stored in the ground??
the urainium in the rods is ENRICHED.
the stuff in the ground ISNT.
tons of nookular waste sits at the plants where it was used, or at storage sites that need protection both physically and personal wise. the uranium comes from NORTHERN SASKATCEWAN.(SP)
THE NUKULAR WASTE MUST BE RETURNED THERE??
i WOULD LOVE IT TOO, BUT CANANDA MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT IT.
yucca mt was built, but now it looks like they wont open it.
too bad, but it would still need to be cleaned up someday...
you republicans dont think long term enough..
WE on the left, plan eons ahead!! and you hate it because your fixed on the next quarter like most repubs.
I used the NIMBY test for anyone who is PRO-NOOKULAR
IF you dont want it in YOUR backyard, then youve no right to put it in SOMEONE ELSES back yard,
and when you analyse that statement, you see how very republican in nature it is.

What does turning back the clock have to do with anything?

Bill maher doesnt weield the power over politicians that rush limbaugh does.....
just look at how powerful rush is....he has REALLY really helped Obama with the female vote.
and he has every commentator in the nation talking about him for hours a day!!......I d say thats power. bill maher HAS never and WILL never been poular enough(compared to Rush)to cause such a stir.
I dont agree with all of bills humor, but he sure rips you dorks a new one every friday night(not daily like rush)
and you simply dont have an enetertainer of bills caliber on the right......the right hates hollywood, just like A.hitler did, because of their political lampooning.
Ps; you obviously dont actually watch bill maher, because if you did, youd know he gives it out to the dems as well.
but they arnt as FUNNY as the New New republicans are.
the new new republicans in their social issues campaign, has given bill years worth of material.
bill owes much of his salery to folks like palin, rush and santorum. without them, there wouldn't be nearly as much good material to lampoon out there.

Since the U.S.A. has millions of bottles of natural gas, we don't have to pipe it in from the REPUBLICAN/TEA PARTY NATION MEMBER'S ANYMORE!
#4698 Mar 6, 2012
Another misconception, the stuff that we haven't taken out of the ground might not be enriched yet, but it's still quite dangerous if you're exposed to it, just look up Radon gas.
So about 100 years after enriched uranium is used in a reactor, it's about as dangerous as all the uranium that's in the ground today, and releasing radioactivity and radon gas.
Even the enriched pellets aren't real dangerous if their handled properly. I've seen them, the ones in our local reactors are small, and only really dangerous if you had a long exposure like if they were right under your house and you were sleeping there every night, or if you get enough close together and start a critical mass reaction.
I think you would benefit from a course on nuclear physics. Don't believe all the hype.
When everyone talks about radioactive forever, just remember that if that wasn't kind of true, the stuff that we dig up wouldn't still be radioactive enough to use. Yes, it's still radioactive after millions of years, but that doesn't mean it's a threat we can't deal with.
On the other hand their is no way to make a fossil fuel power plant that's clean and doesn't kill people via things like cancer.
Next time someone tells you how bad nuclear is, just point out how many people die of cancer from fossil fuel power plants.
Nuclear certainly has it's problems too, but if it's done right, like Generation 3 reactors, at least you can say it doesn't kill anyone.
If you don't know, Generation 3 is the safest design, safer than what we use now. What we use now depends on mechanical safeties working to shut down the reactor if something goes wrong.
Gen 3 reactors are much larger, and built on the principal that the core is so big that it can't produce enough energy in a small place to melt it's self down.
Even if all the safeties fail, all it can do is get very hot, even if all the water is gone, still all it can do is get very hot. It's a little like comparing an acetylene and oxygen torch to a propane and air one. Acetylene and Oxygen can burn though steel, but propane can't regardless of what you do with it.
If they had gen 3 in Japan, nothing would have melted down.

It's like a great ground hog day, don't you think?

There are days here in Los Angeles that I can see snow capped mountains. I hate that. I like the ocean not mountains. I am against not clean air but transparent air. I don't trust air I can't see. I am for whatever proposition it is that causes breathing problems like emphysema and asthma to the young and elderly because I'm middle aged and CA is over populated as is. Bigger trucks and bigger factories I say. We need the jobs that pay just enough over slave wages that you become essentially a slave. Please more of that.
#4701 Mar 6, 2012
Too much heat involved with paving the streets.
#4702 Mar 6, 2012
right if it gets too hot, well all be fine!!
are you trippin or something?
japan wasnt enough of a lesson for you that we should eb investing somewhere else, you must have a death wish.
we still have rods that are cooling from other (non generation 3) type plants....
the rods out in humboldt for instance.
a power source that is a terrorist target is low on my list of good energy proposals..... tognite newt was like plan # 1 drill, plan #2 drill, plan #3 drill.......
dont you guys have any other alternatives than oil, coal and nookular, which is unsafe and expensive to build and operate compared to a passive solar farm??
I dont buy your industry style rhetoric onhow safe those reactor are.
there have been two HUGE nuclear accident now.....and the third is likey to be in this country.
human error is enough of a reason not to build a reactor that continually need s to be cooled!!
here is my test to you....
if it is so safe,
would you mind if we built the next one near your house??
or would you, to demonstrtae how safe you think nuclear power is, buy some property next to a plant somewhere.
would you do that??
I am not asking you if you WILL, but would you??
"the core is so big, that it cant produce enough energy to melt down" really??? OK pal.
funny, but your the first person to be selling the saftey of nookular plants..
the residents of Ne japan and the ukraine would beg to differ.
#4703 Mar 6, 2012
ps: im not advocating fossil fuel plants either, that is YOUR stubborn mind set....
Im advocating claen alternatives like hydro, wind and solar,passive solar, tidal and geothermal.
the projects are now competative with sinking multi-billions into a nuclear project......which is never going to happen anyways.
why?? citizen outrage.... its just as hard to build a major airport...even though we need those to, as well as more power.
good luck with the nookular agenda, it is dangerous as s**t, but keep plugging away, mabey some idiot will believe you.
#4704 Mar 6, 2012
you dont trust air you cant see??
what about air you can see that you cant inhale...??
can you trust that??
your post made little sense.
all that water on those mts is what residents drink and bathe with.
I look up and I see glorious snow pack and breathe deep the fresh Northern california air... and i know its all going somewhere.
youve been breathing smog so long, your lungs might overload if they tasted this fresh air.
#4705 Mar 6, 2012
No, I don't spend my time watching him or hearing rush. Keep Voting for the fake robin hood that is actually taking money from the middle class and giving it to the rich. The point is, Rush is an entertainer. He has no power over anyone. Why is the left so concerned about free speech? Some get banned, some are killed, and then others are evil when both sides say it? What do u love about Hollywood?
#4706 Mar 6, 2012
I love it when they lampoon the right!!
and they do it often. because it is still controlled by the same people.
the republcans are the party of the rich!!?? FOR SURE
at least Obama has a jobs proposal...
except the rebuttlicken congress keeps fillibustering it.
corporations operate but by the good grace of their markets...
without the consumerism of the masses, there IS no wealth for the 1 percent to pool it the top.
socialism is what weve had through out the progressive age, to offset the ravages of pure capitalism.
or would you like to roll back all the gains of the unions and worker saftey.
would you take us back to 1893?? when we had no weekend and no osha, job security or pensions??
yeah I thought you would.
#4707 Mar 6, 2012
No I would prefer to let Ca. public employee unions break the state.....not. Thank you democrats in Sacramento for dring us into bankruptcy.

Funny how images are so reverse. It's both sides that are rich, the rich ones are people like john kerry and nazi pelosi, obama has made the rich richer at the expense of the middle class.
#4709 Mar 6, 2012
there ARE wealthy democrats....
but the lions share of wall st money in this election is going to the republicans......Not obama. that was last time, before he signed frank dodd.
most uber wealthy people vote republican as well.....in their own interest. of course.
#4710 Mar 6, 2012
I agree, those are high pensions
but the state is far from bankrupt...
in fact the sky hasnt fallen yet, so quit your hysteria.
#4711 Mar 6, 2012
its almost like you want the state to fail, just out of spite.
face it. california is blue and will always be from now on, until it turns compleatly green. after getting in the black!
I know your soar that meg whitman and the texas oil cartel couldnt buy our elections in 10'......but get over it!!
there is a new election coming for you to get yow azz whupped in.
#4712 Mar 6, 2012
