Discarded Lies has a story on a "nuclear battery" that can provide 10 MWe of power for remote villages (the proposed site is in Alaska). So once the Alaska Wildlife Refuge is depleted, Alaskans will be getting their power in a non-polluting manner from nuclear power! There are other nuclear options that will soon come to the fore. So far, the big unreported story is how utilities have improved the thermal efficiency, operating rate and reduced refuelling time of existing 1000 MWe nuclear plants. The operating cost is about 2 cents /KWH! So a big part of our future will be nuclear. Just don't expect to read about it in the paper anytime soon.
Update 2/12/05 3:28 AM - Fixed link! I now have a witness (Evariste!) that I should have an office twinkie. I just can't afford one on my enormous income of $0.00 and I already have such competent volunteer fact checkers and helpers that I don't think I need a professional! I'll just struggle along with what I've got!
