Our country needs the energy that can be provided by power plants. The fourth generation plants are better than the plants build forty years ago.

Yucca Mountain was built to store all the used in generation and military.
It is an amazing location and is interesting reading. Just as the completion was near we elected Obama. Harry Reid and Barak decided to abandon the project even though billions have been spent and studies prove this is a great why to store it.
Hopefully in the future it will be looked at again and allowed to open.

Because it's not safe, you can bury or any other way, no matter , there IS NO SAFE WAY OR PLACE ... WAKE UP....maybe we can put it in your back yard? No then why should someone else take your waste. Wake up.

I am not understanding your vitriol.
the truth is all the waste is in everyones backyards with the storage system used now. I think that was the point of Yucca Mountain. It was a safe - dry - and secure way of handling it. just yelling "wake up" never solves a problem. understand it's not just buried in leaking containers as some would have you believe.

Please people think about this! How do you sleep at night! Lets get together and stop letting the money and religion run what is our childrens future. Look at the maps that have nuclear plants throughout the US! Be careful there will be nothing left!!!!! The energy is not worth it and you dont have to be a psychic to see where this is headed!!!

Would you prefer to live in a cave? Modern technology has made life easy for everyone,I personally wouldn't want to live in the dark ages. Do you use a cell phone,microwave oven or go into a hospital? Do you eat bananas or any foods than have been radiated? All those have more radioactivity than your going to find in your milk or water. The number of deaths associated with nuclear reactors in the United States in minuscule compared with the millions of deaths from other causes.

Still no answer on my question. How did we go from nukes to religion?
I sense you are a liberal and I don't mean that in a bad way. I just notice whenever debating with one they tend to throw in a different subject. I canít figure out why they do it, but they do.
I have not vitriol in any statement I have made.
Just trying to have a good discourse Ė I have not yelled at anyone or called names or made reference to the state of sleepiness as others have at me.

So you folks are ok with this? We wouldnt need nuclear at hospitals if there wasnt garbage in our food. Maybe the old way should be just that!

Do you prefer that where is no modern equipment in hospitals? Do you think we would be safer if we all used candles in our homes instead of electricity? Do you really believe we would be better off without electricity? Eight hundred years ago Europe was covered with a thick black smoke from all the 'natural' burning they used to cook food and heat themselves. A hundred years ago New York had five foot piles of horse manure on every street corner. Seventy five years ago,half of the homes in the United States still didn't have indoor plumbing or electricity. Sixty years ago children were dying from lack of conveniences that sixty percent of the country had the benefit of.

Ok, what do you suppose is going to happen to the ocean? What about Japan? Do you think they are using the same argument? Maybe you could lobby for them!!

The was nothing wrong with the nuclear reactors in Japan. The first generation reactors were very old and were going to be replaced soon. The problem was with the collateral equipment that was used to generate water to cool the used rods. The reactors withstood the earthquake and the tsunami,the diesel powered generators went off line and resulted in a lack of fresh cooling water. Japan will rebuild,with new forth generation reactors. In United States we move the used rods away from danger.

There always seems to be a severe backlash when solutions are brought up. Moving the nuke material to Yucca solves a problem - nope can't do that. Raise the diesel generators so the next tsunami does not affect them - nope can't do that. Build a big solar plant in the dessert- nope can't do that because it affects a sand mouse or some such nonsense.
There will always be opposition to everything it seems - I have no idea how to solve that problem

Yes, there should be a nuclear power plant on every block.

Supply and demand should provide appropriate incentive for capital expenditures and need for reactors,not the desires of left wing radicals. There are over a hundred in the United States,mostly across the east coast and in southern parts of the country. There has been no major problems for over thirty years.

That does not take away from the reality of the disaster!
