Re: Nuclear power
Just this bit worries me:
# After about two years, enough of the U-235 has been converted to fission products and the fission products have built up enough so that the fuel rods must be removed and replaced by new ones.
# What to do with the spent fuel rods is what causes most of the fuss concerning nuclear power.
So every 2 years, stuff has to be buried.
After 500 years, the fission products will be less radioactive than the uranium ore they are originally derived from. So I guess thats when its at a safe point. Still a long time.
The sooner Fusion comes along, the better really, as that has no downsides on paper really, and only generates water as a bi-product.
