without the power produced compared to these risks???
I agree. All we do is use the energy to boil water to make steam. and the result is tons of nuclear waste. We need to stop until we canuse the
radiation directly like a solar cell collector.
In the meantime set up plants to burn GARBAGE (with a smoke scrubber) and solve the trash problem at the same time. Trash burning also boils water,
and the stuff scrubbed from the smoke is good fertilizer or can be easily processed to recover other chemicals. Sudbury Canada did that on their
smelters and is recovering pure sulfur, something that paid for the installation of the scrubbers.
We could save all those land fill sites by just burning the trash and recover the metal from the ashes
