I appreciate your enthusiasm! I'll be working on porting it into regular printer friendly form tonight. This is part of a larger film project. I
talked about it in a couple posts in this thread. Thanks.

At what cost? There's a reason why such isn't already common place: It's uneconomical, and will be for some time.
At what point with a earth coated with solar panels and gigantic wind turbines, and coasts littered with high maintainence wave generators, would we
consider that pollution?
That's not to say don't do any of it, but to assume a growing and increasingly technologically based population can do it all with strict renewables
only, without stimying the world economy and preventing the third world of developing, is unrealistic wishful thinking.
And that's just electricity. If you want a hydrogen fuel economy GenIV is the best enabler out there.
It seems like you're referring to nuclear technology without really taking into account the new possibilities of GenIV technology. GenIV is about
turning the existing nuclear "waste" stockpiles into an abundant energy supply, and ending the need to the weaponry 'by products' of refinement.
You might consider taking a good in depth look at GenIV, and not listening wholeheartedly to the tired old arguments against nuclear power that only
address the old way of doing it.
