One more fallacy of the environ-wackos down the toilet.

Never mind the fact it is ugly as all hell - and I would never put my kids in that deathtrap.
If the electricty was made with nuclear power, it would leave almost no emmissions.

Agreed. Solar and wind power are the future. The sooner we get out in front on this the better.

As far as nuclear power, have we now determined that nuclear waste is not a concern?
Why should we let the fear-mongering about that bogey-man continue when nuclear CAN be the panacea will are looking for.

France seems to do well with nuclear power and the waste issue - don't they rely on nuclear power for 70%+ of their energy needs?

Are you telling me that France can do a better job than we can?

Something we can agree on - I'm all for nuclear. It makes the most sense.

If the electricity is made with solar or wind power, we won't have nuclear waste giving our grandchildren cancer 40 years from now. Wake up! There are better options than what the lobbyists tell you on Fox news.

Solar is still a long ways from being viable and wind power is less than reliable. Ever look at a wind farm? On any given day half the towers are idle. Broken down.
I am all for renewable energy as long as it is viable. Corn Ethenol is a classic example of waste.

Nuclear waste lasts for hundreds of thousands of years. What do you think we are going to do with it in the future when it's spilling out into our backyards?

Yes, I have seen many wind farms. We need to improve the technology no doubt. But it's truly clean and lasts forever. Corn Ethenol is a waste, I agree.

Another issue with wind farms is the need for batteries. Yet another source for toxic wastes.
Hydrogen? Has potential.
Bio-diesel? Potential
Tidal generators? Potential.
Geothermal? Potential but also risky.
Solar? Same issue with having to rely on batteries.
