No to Nuclear Power

Okay, I admit I am a little biased but I think this is one of the most creative, cool, videos I've seen about nuclear power.




and uh... yeah, the artist, Sara O'Brien, is my namesake.

Why don't we just go back to living in caves and be done with it?

perhaps you should go back to yours, Will...

Or I could move to France. A little dismissive but, whatever.

to say that we want to live in caves because we think nuclear power is problematic, to say the least, is dismissive.

if you want to say something thoughtful and with evidence, feel free. but if you shoot a one liner, bub, you're getting it right back at ya.

ok is my family starting crap in your blog again? Glad to see we are keeping the blood at a low boil.
And living in a cave sound good right about now. just as long as its on a tropical island with those fruity drinks with the umbrellas.

France gets 80% of it's power from nuclear. Fact. Norway is safely (i.e., absent environmental catastrophes) able to drill for oil off of it's pristine coast-line. Fact. Corn-based ethanol has been a disaster, not just because it's helped to increase world hunger but because it's been bad on fuel systems (boats, even lawn-mowers, for Christ!). Fact. I don't know, it just seems that everybody's got a bug up their ass about something. And in the mean-time, a bunch of brain-dead thugs/tyrants have us over the barrell. Sure, we all want a green polyanna but, until that happens, things might remain a little messy for a while. P.S. You want to do something to help the environment? Stop eating meat from factory farms and try going vegetarian a couple days a week.

Hello this is Sara the girl named after Sara, yes it is true that France has safely used nuclear power, but the point I am trying to make is that it is not a lasting, and far from flawless alternative. I am not just a high school student that mindlessly put this together. I did a lot of research and a lot effort went in to this.
Fact- there is no safe way to store nuclear waste and the build up could cause many areas to become uninhabitable for many years
Fact - the uranium used for nuclear power will be used up in less than a century if license are renewed and productivity is increased
fact- Though nuclear energy does not produce CO2, the admissions of Co2 from mining more then make up for that though
Fact- the first radioactive waste was created in 1948, and its still radio active to this day
We create dangerous byproducts to produce easy energy that can "help" when in reality it is leaving behind a legacy that will hunt many future generations to come. I don’t suppose you remember from you high school chem. coarse how long the half life of uranium is do you?
AND yes Corn-based ethanol has been a disaster but note I did not say that was an alternate source of energy I indorse. Just because there has been no major melt downs or “to” many (because there has been here in the USA) makes it right. Ask your self something how far do you think people will go to cover these facts when nuclear power plants have ties to weapons manufactures? Don’t even get me started on the affects of uranium based missiles on the environment and on the solders that risk their lives fighting (one supposed way to deal with nuclear waste). Nuclear power is not a black and white issue but it is gray and needs to be dealt with. If your so eco friendly pro vegetarian why don’t you save the cows by being part of the solution and not sweeping it under the rug for mine and future generations to deal with.
So I think you should have done a little more research then an 11th grade high school student before you started to state your position on nuclear waste.
=) thank you

I never said it was a "flawless" or "lasting" solution. I only said that it would probably have to be a part of the mix for a while, until more viable options can be developed but, more importantly, so we don't have to be under the grip of Middle-Eastern thugs, Chavez, etc.. There's no way to store it safely? Well, apparently the French have found a way. What am I sweeping under the rug? I tell everybody I know that the UN agricultiral report stated that the meat industry gives off more man-made greehouse gasses than all forms of transport combined (something that Mr. finger-licking good Gore has never said to my knowledge). 11th-grade? Atta way to respect another person's opinion. Get that from Sara, too?

Really great blog!

As long as people vote democratic or republican, things will never change in this country and our quality of life will
continue to degrade.

As you know, the media and other controlling sources make us think that we only have two choices for
the presidency in our nation.

Did you know the first third party in our country was the anti-freemasonic party? They were
good people that stood against evil and offered our country a third choice for leadership. Leadership that stood against
the tyranny, suppression, and oppression that we face today.

We need real change and to get our nation off of the oil and corrupt pharmaceutical industry standard. Please review our
website, contact us with any questions or comments, and help us anyway you can.


Sincerely,

Adam Vohrer
Vice President

Citizens Committee for Restructured Government (CCRG)

I am the sort of hombre who enjoys to seek hot things. Presently I am constructing my personal solar panels. I'm managing it all alone without the help of my staff. I am using the internet as the only way to acheive this. I saw a truly brilliant site that explains how to build photovoltaic panels and wind generators. The web site explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I am not really sure about how correct the information given there is. If some guys over here who had experience with these things can have a look and give your feedback in the site it will be grand and I would extremely treasure it, cauze I really lav solar panel construction.

Thanks for reading this. You guys rock.
