Although we have poured tax money into expensive alternative energy, with some companies already having gone broke, the only results we have seen is killing millions of birds, including eagles and more expensive electrical power.
There is an alternative and that alternative is nuclear power and ultimately, is what eventually will have to be our source of electric power. We have no choice.
Throughout recent history, we have always had those who live in fear of nuclear power but these are the same folks who live in fear of eating a hamburger at a fast food joint and who refuse to have their kids inoculated against diseases. They point to the Chernobyl disaster in Russia and Fukushima disaster in Japan as examples of what can go wrong. Both are lousy examples, however. Russian nuclear technology was extremely backward when they built the Chernobyl nuclear power plant some 60 years ago. The Fukushima disaster in Japan was a fool’s game because they built it on the edge of a seacliff, subject to earthquakes.
