Going Green--With Nuclear Energy

I support this completely. So does Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace (type his name into the search engine at the top of this blog page to see other posts mentioning him).

ITALY, which last week decided to embrace nuclear power two decades after a public referendum banned nuclear power and deactivated all its reactors, could be just the first of several European countries to reverse its stance on nuclear power, a leading industry group has said.

I think this is a horrible idea. The idea of having nuclear energy coming back into the mainstream seems like nothing more than corporate payoff to those news outlets that picked up the story. Have we forgot about all the destructive power that nuclear energy has brought onto mankind? Have we forgotten that while nuclear energy may be a viable source of energy, that this technology could easily fall back into the wrong hands and be used as weapons against the US? Call me old fashioned but I prefer to live in a world where threat of nuclear disaster is just a memory. Personally I think there is major stake to be held in biofuels. I think with enough support, we can establish many sustainable resources to harvest biofuels, like bioheat.

Did you know that if everyone in America switched to bioheat, then 400 million gallons of regular oil could be conserved. Has anyone here ever considered switching from regular oil heat to bioheat? Has anyone here ever heard of it? I think it's an amazing alternative to regular oil heat, because it's clean burning and uses a b5 blend of vegetable and plant oils. I think everyone who wants to live in a greener household should seriously consider making the switch! It's easy, and no extra costs are involved. Just go on to http://oilheatamerica.com/index.mv?screen=bioheat and read more about it!

Well, there's one opinion. I'm with the Italians on this one.

You may wanna do a little more research on nuclear power. I think that you are falling prey to the hysteria that has plagued nuclear power for years.

If you research it, you will find that a nuclear plant produces less hazardess waste and pollution than a coal plant. You also will find that the material used to power a nuclear plant and a nuclear bomb are considerably different.
