Blowing the Whistle on Nuclear Power

Nuclear power plants are extremely complex machines.  Think of them as space shuttles with 1,000 Hiroshima’s worth of radiation stored inside.  It’s because of this hazardous fact that regulations must be strict, and no tolerance for error or sloppy operation tolerated.

  1. Hi,
    No matter how safe, nuclear power is NOT cheap considering the de-commisson costs to mothball a station. That will run into hundreds of years. Just very recently I have found a way to generate power which creates no pollution, does not add to global warming, does not use any non-renewable fuel source, including nuclear but runs on a free, unlimited and never ending source of power. Only the building size of the facility will determine the megawatts of electricity it can generate. It will be much less costly to build than Nuclear facility and will generate free power constantly. It can cycle from a low point of generating to its maximum capacity in short order. It is not dependent on Solar or wind conditions and thus a constant and dependable electrical power source.
    Besides the above features it was designed to be able to serve a world-wide market safely and efficiently.
    I am in the process of having it tested at a University specializing in developing economical ways of generating electrical power for nations which must otherwise import every ounce of fuel source to generate electricity.
    There is help on the horizon!!
