Hope your week is starting well.
The Trenton Times (NJ), a newspaper serving the Princeton, Trenton
and Hamilton, NJ
areas, just had an article on windmills, windmill farms and the downside of
in the path of Hurricanes, Cyclones, Typhoons and Tornadoes --- one bad
such weather event can
ruin your whole wind farm.
Coal has the downside of slag and burning products, as alluded to
here on radsafe.
Clearly, Nuclear Plants should not be placed in potential large
Tsunami zones. Oh well.
Nuclear plants located elsewhere seem to be doing a good job of providing
reliably. In the USA, many reactors are having their operating lifetimes
extended for another
10-20 years. Some new nuclear plants may be built in the USA someday.
moderated nuclear reactor and other nuclear designs are being researched.
I guess solar energy will have its place in society --- wish I
could afford some solar panels and
a control system. Once you add solar panels to your home, your house
value and property
taxes may go up. Ouch.
For the antinuke lurkers around radsafe, I don't think nuclear
power is going away any time
Joe Calabrese used to write (Sports) for the Trenton Times.
Green's are all over the place here in America. Green is a rather
common last name.
Which recent Health Physics Society President (who is from Hector,
a serious collection of baseball BATS!!!!????
Bayer makes aspirin, right???? Bayern is a German word for the
Southern part of
Germany known to us as Bavaria....
Mr. Helbig, the antinukes are everywhere --- EPA, State
Academia, working at nuclear plants and at National Laboratories. Can you
pick out which people
they are??? I can pick out some of them.
For the serious antinukes, the Environment is their religion.
The Rock and Roll music
establishment is largely antinuke. I suspect some serious antinukes would
sell drugs and get
naked in movies to support their cause.
I believe that many people in America who have been unemployed for
a number of years, are
turning to drug dealing as a way to support their families. All manner of
age groups are involved. People I have met in college have been involved
in drug sales for 30+
years now. Few are in jail.
Many drugs in the USA come from south of the US border. More and
more lately, drugs
are being manufactured and sold locally. Can you name the drug of choice
that is being
manufactured locally???? The TV show Breaking Bad is very on point in
I like nuclear power for the future. I would like Fusion (pie in
the Sky????) even more.
Again, I've said too much already.
Have a good week at work and home.
