LFTRnow / What is your opinion on nuclear energy?
Inventions & Ecology / Good Day! Thank you for asking me! I'm very happy that you reacted on my comment! I not competent in a question of replacement of main energy sources, I'd prefer for it should be a bit safer (to avoid a new one planetarian catastrofy in case of unexpected occurrences). What me worries more for this moment - is nuclear debris = our wonderfuly toxic hoard, buried for all next generations of Earth: in a soil, in an ocean, in a space... That is obvious that we are wrong with it, right?! >> I anticipate a huge problem even to re-collect those substances from an ambient for a correct treatment. I decided to be useful in offering of collaboration of smart, competent, initiative & not corrupt minds for a joint resolving of such GLOBAL & urgent questions in our common home!!! I'm really suffering deeply from inside, analizing our contemporary invironmental situation. I feel, that being indifferent, I will be implicated in this silent crime committed by my generation. Please, stay in touch! Let's continue our conversation on my web-forum - it was created for this aim only. Thank you! Good luck in all beginnings!
LFTRnow / Concern about nuclear "waste" is a common concern and one that I share - or shared until I found out there really is very little to be concerned about. Let me explain. First of all, what we call "waste" or "spent fuel" is really only spent or waste from the perspective of the nuclear technology we are currently using. What is left behind is akin to burning the bark off of logs and then storing the wood core. There is a LOT of energy left over that isn't used by our current process but could be used in the future. It is not waste, it is a future energy resource. http://lftrnow.com/what-about-the-waste/
LFTRnow / People also express concern about the radioactivity of "waste" and how long it will be around. Most don't know that the world - even the ocean before Fukushima was, is and will always be radioactive. Radioactivity is (and was) everywhere, which people don't realize. There is a significant amount of uranium in the ocean, thorium, uranium and others on land, cosmic radiation from space, and even natural radioactive potassium (K40) in the human body. I suggest putting these fears in perspective and learning the reality behind them, this is how I became very much pro-nuclear. New nuclear tech (such as the one in the video) would reduce waste and improve efficiency even further.
