quote: I want you to think up an idea that will produce the necessary power for a large ship, without mining something. Whether it be oil, coal, or Uranium. There really isn't anything, is there?
quote: Nuclear power these days is really as safe as anything else. Are there risks? Sure there are risks but there are risks with anything anymore.
quote: You would need MASSIVE wind and solar farms.
quote: I just don't like the fact we are moving from one fuel to another, and the effects that mining for it has.
quote: Uranium ain't going to last forever, you can only mine it out of the ground once.
quote: Wave, Hydro, Geothermal... Geothermal is probably the one that interests me most. It's a GOOD replacement for nuclear if they get the research in so that they can be built in more places.
quote: Hydro is limited by location, but hell if they can build it they should instead of a nuclear plant, it also can provide good base load power.
quote: Basically instead of going 100% Nuclear everywhere, they should use whatever green alternative that works best in any given location.
