Let's get back to basics folks!! I love the concept of harnessing the moon's energy. We now have solar and wind energy. I am sure the top scientists could figure it out. Heck, we did put a man on the moon in the 60's-know? No more nuclear plants, stop the takeover of people being guinea pigs. Yo, "Dances with Unicorns", we hippies will dance in the moonlight and absorb the natural energy!! ROCK ON!!
Tidal power stations harness the moons energy already.

I agree that we need more power, but Nuclear is NOT the way to do it. GEO-THERMAL, WAVE, TIDAL, WIND and SOLAR, are just a few ways that would be favorable to the EARTH. Geo-thermal has been used for hundreds of years. The United States already has more Geo-thermal power plants than anywhere else in the world. They just hate for the word to get around, because sustainable and renewable means less PROFITS for the 21st century ROBBER BARONS. We have enough EASILY accessible thermal energy, measured in ZJ's to power the WORLD for the next 4000 years. These are not solutions for the future they are solutions for the PRESENT.

Please use your internet to do the research yourself. geo-energy.org is a good place to start your search.

Thank you for your info, so if we have all these resources we are using, why do they still push nuclear?

I pretty much agree with all you said with only one minor clarification.
Geothermal has been used by the Earth's inhabitants ever since they first appeared on this globe, not just for a few hundred years. Geothermal "power" is what sustains all the living things that hibernate in the winter.
One of the best places to look for shelter when you are in a survival situation in the outdoors, is an overturned and uprooted tree. Just crawl into the hole where the roots are and the Earth's warmth will help you survive.

More than likely nothing. The percentage of taxes from inbreed trash like you is extremely low.

If we agree to store the spent fuel rods under the homes of those that profit from nuclear, how many reactors would be built? Someday your children will reason as I do.
Waste is nothing to played with fool...

This is like most all of your replies.

Years ago there was a Presidential focus group of young college people, they had been asked to sort out the problems with using alternative methods to generate electricity.
As the discussion went into a more serious direction, a consulting engineer said 'The laws of physics won't let you do that'
Where as the team leader said 'Who wrote these laws? we have to change them'
And as they say THHHHHAAAATTTT"S ALL FOLKSSSSSS

Well, those engineers also said that this was impossible in electric cars too. I'd say that 123 MPH and a 10.25 second quarter mile in an electric lithium ion powered 1972 Datsun is rather impressive.

And he built it in his garage! He can charge it up for the next race at the track. Mot one bit of emissions!. A man's man.

It's Saturday morning, turned on the TV, more trouble for the Japanese, more leaks, evacuation area expanded, hundreds of thousands in camps, water contamination in ocean, food sources ruined, no fresh water, radiation has reached Denver. As meabadboy continues to drink the Kool-Aid.

And how did that electric car do on a cross country trip? Can it carry twice or three times it own weight? Solar cars can barely carry their lone passenger and only on a bright sunny day.
Maybe if they added a wind sail it would triple it's speed?

But what about night and a windless day?
And if everyone drove electric cars where are we going to build the extra power plants to charge them?
Don't forget to wear your tin foil hat for radiation protection

It was not made for cross country, it was made to make the fuel drsgsters eat crow. No wonder your comparisons bother me.

Correction:
The solar cars that you see and hear about in this country are those limp and lame versions you speak of.

On a windless day, if you stick your arm out the window of a moving vehicle ... do you feel the wind? If you twirl around with your arms extended on a "windless" day, do you feel the "wind" on your arms? Gee could it be possible to use THAT wind to turn car mounted turbines that create electricity while going down the road even if the sun is not shining and the wind is not "blowing"?

There is a reason this kind of "power" is being develpoed in garages. There is a reason that you do not hear about what is really going on in the world of wind, solar, and electric cars ... in THIS country. There is a reason THIS country is mired down in wars in the Middle East ... OIL !!!

There is a reason that our political "leaders" are trying to take over our private enterprise too. When they finally succeed ... IF ... they succeed, those experiments in those private garages will become illegal.

Try using your head for something beside posting regurgitated drivel and misinformation on a public forum and just holding your ears apart.

If you take that amount of power that is used in those runs of the White Zombie and accellerate slower and do not go 123 MPH, how far could that car go on a charge? You did see him driving it around on the street ...

Salute! Some people only think inside the box, some can never leave the tech. they grew up in, some never grow. Thank you for this post, I had never thought of this application, perhaps one could capture the wind energy on the way home from work in a lithium battery pack. Pop out the battery pack when you get home and power up the house.
