A Stanford University professor did the math and economics and solar, wind and other alternative energy sources introduced over the next 50 years in the United States would serve to meet the United States total energy needs at lower cost and sooner than sufficient nuclear could be online.
The bugaboo about no sunshine at night? Energy storage already exists in the form of molten salt for solar among others such as hydrogen generation during daytimes operations as well as likewise serving as a non polluting fuel.
Japan itself is near ideally suited for wave and tidal generation being surrounded by water and being that power would not have to be transmitted over large distances.

The limitation on comments imposed by Japan Today you refer to in no way addresses the issue of your excuse for your disingenuous behavior.
As I commented to your previous mismash you have the option to not reply to me at all so long as you continue to employ said disingenuous misquoting.
As regards to rainwater not taking up radionuclides it doesn't have to said radionucleides are already suspended in the atmosphere, rainwater brings them down. Review the reactor three blast.
I've nothing but time as I am confined to a bed with nothing better to do to relieve my boredom by correcting your misrepresentations of my texts this venue.
Further I can supply virtually endless documentation from the last twenty - three years bedridden all of which I've had a computer at my side.
Nuclear is an interest of mine and I an early proponent until such time as I became well read and better informed. Note please I do not alter nor merge your texts, please have the good manners not to reply to my texts at all if you cannot refrain from creative alterations.
Have you taken the time to google image the Chernobyl victems? I have. I do not recommend such viewing for those with weak stomachs and Fukushima is ongoing and long worse than Chernobyl.
That black substance found all over Japan? Nuclear core material volatized, highly radioactive, launched into the air when reactor 3 went up. Many times Chernobyl. Soon, pictures to follow from Japan mirroring those of Chernobyl. It sickens me.

Mr O'Brien It is disingenuous of you to say the least to merge my reply to you while first replying to another text not of my authorship.
Did I alter your text in order to confuse or misdirect? No sir, I did not.
Please in future should you elect to reply to my remarks in this venue please take care to reply to my remarks without the additions as in the above post of yours to Japan Today.

Quoting Mike O'Brien
Mike O'Brien at Mar. 19, 2014 - 04:52AM JSTIt's not an x-ray or a banana when its lodged in the tissues of your lungs and the radiation levels of plutonium and other transuranics out distance those of potassium 40 by many millions and billions times over.
"Wrong, just wrong. So wrong that it isn't even worth trying to explain."
I see, my statements are irrefutable. Or google depleteted uranium, Chernobyl, better yet google images. Depleted uraniuim being extemely low rad but high impact, see kids with ears under their nose and one eye, ect.
To another you spoke of of "so what" who drinks seawater", we'll pretty much everyone as it's part of the Earths water cycle. Evaporation, ever heard of it?despite being indemnified against costs of accident or disposal.
"Nope, wrong again."
So name one disposal site that's worked out for as little as 20 years? Price - Anderson indemnity act. How is that wrong my erudite friend? How? These are my questions sir. Looking forward to your refutation.

WWII counts its dead in the tens of millions.
Clean, too cheap to meter, carbon free nuclear does too.
Add to this it is actually so expensive that many plants are right now being shuttered in the U.S due to being uneconomical despite being indemnified against costs of accident or disposal.
Nuclear, if you're in the club its profitable however all are at risk. It's just like the lottery.
