The US Navy has accumulated over 6200 reactor-years of accident-free experience over the course of 230 million kilometres, and operated 82 nuclear-powered ships (11 aircraft carriers, 71 submarines - 18 SSBN/SSGN, 53 SSN) with 103 reactors as of March 2010.

we should be economizing on our use of power, building local power plants that make use of solar some wind

I agree we need to practice conservation. We also must make use of every power source and research new sources.Wind, oil, natural gas, hydro, wave, nuclear, coal,solar, geothermal, leave no stone unturned.

Nope. Let's use a baseball analogy since the Rockies season starts Friday.

There is no way you will take to the field without a shortstop (nuclear) or a second baseman (coal). You have your bullpen for relief. You have a couple of great right handers(wind, solar) but you are glad you have those left handers too (wave , geothermal).

Nuclear reactors (the ones on land, not subs) make for stunningly easy targets for airborne terrorists.

So do oil refineries. So do large cities. So do railroad terminals. So do airport terminals. Should we stop living or just carry an eighteenth century iron umbrella over our heads?

:-) The half live of 1 gram of coal is about 1 secund when I spit on it.
:-( The half live of 1 gram of u235 is 705 million years if I spit on it or not.

We need to look at alternative planet friendly energy sources. Solar and wind are our best options. Nuclear power plants have too many dangerous variables.
