Cheap, safe, mini nuclear reactors now on sale

"Where we're going, we don't need any roads."

This is incredible...

"Nuclear power plants smaller than a garden shed and able to power 20,000 homes will be on sale within five years, say scientists at Los Alamos, the US government laboratory which developed the first atomic bomb..."

Nor do they pose a threat to anyone.

"...The miniature reactors will be factory-sealed, contain no weapons-grade material, have no moving parts and will be nearly impossible to steal because they will be encased in concrete and buried underground. ...

'You could never have a Chernobyl-type event - there are no moving parts,' said Deal. 'You would need nation-state resources in order to enrich our uranium. Temperature-wise it's too hot to handle. It would be like stealing a barbecue with your bare hands.' "
I can guarantee we'll be the last modern nation on the planet to get on board with this given our new "progressive" government. Because Al Gore is in the driver's seat now. Driving pantsless, an open container of alcohol between his knees, right down the middle of the road. Just because he can.
