I don't really have a big problem with nuclear myself but I would like to see more research done into less controversial ideas...

This strip = Greenpeace's worst nightmare, anthro animals wanting to go nuclear. ;) :D

You know, there's always solar and wind power.
LongTom 28th Jul 2017, 11:11 AM edit delete reply
Which will not produce enough energy to replace nuclear power.

Even if that's true, we still need to find cleaner, better power sources. Climate Change is real, and we need to treat it as if it were a WWII level threat, like good ol' Bernie Sanders said.

In its current form you would need hundreds of wind turbines to power even a small city, and that's depending on how strong the wind is.

Of course, then you have the PETA people and their persistent yapping. Solar and wind power kill birds, hydroelectric power kills fish, nuclear power kills practically everything else (Well, not quite, but you get the picture). Gotta love politics. XP

Holy shit, is that Tiffany and her brother from...like...350 strips ago? I'd almost forgotten they even existed.

Maybe Russ dodged a bullet in her dumping him online years ago. If they were still together he'd probably have to go to protest rallies against his own will XD

Nuclear power is safe unless you have Homer providing safety inspection :D :D

Looks like Tiffany for sure.

And Homer providing safety!? He could cause a meltdown, an explosion, or worse... a Chinese Syndrome. O.o

Well as long as Homer follows Eenie-Meenie-Minie-Moe everything should turn out OK-long as all the buttons do the same thing at every plant :D

Say...that wolf girl in the second pane looks familiar....:p

How about we send it to the Springfield power plant.

SONGS permanently closed their last two operating units four years ago after significant wear issues with recently replaced steam generators at both locations according to a couple online sources. Diablo Canyon NPP is the only nuclear plant left in California that is still in operation.

Shearon Harris NPP is located about 25 miles southwest of Raleigh...roughly 50 miles from where I live. It was originally planned to be four units, but the other three were scrapped during construction. Duke Energy was looking to have two new units built a few years ago, but cancelled that project due to lower energy demands. The most recent startup of a nuclear plant in the United States was Watts Bar Unit #2 in Tennessee last year, which was the first commission in 20 years since the last one.

Yucca Mountain in Arizona was originally planned to be the only nuclear waste repository in the country, but that never became a reality. Instead, nuclear waste is stored at various locations throughout the United States including at current operating facilities. That's probably why everything glows in the dark around here. ;0P

Speaking of politics, maybe they should stop calling this country "Land of the Free" and begin calling it "Land of the Complainers". It's getting quite atrocious these days, for practically anything and everything.

I have the answer already: There are no magic noncontroversial solutions. Period paragraph.

if it had not been for some quick thinking, it would have been worse in japan then it was. I do somewhat agree with you but, we are playing with a lit keg of dynamite.

Not sure I got the spelling of the last right--but what many anti-nuclear people miss (or dismiss) is that the disaster of Chernobyl started with the blueprints--something like that would NEVER have been built in the UK, US, or anywhere that the engineers could raise questions to their superiors.

Dude, seven more strips and you will reach 500 milestone :D
how does that make you feel?
FreyFox 29th Jul 2017, 10:49 AM edit delete reply
To be honest I've not given it much thought since its kind of crept up on me XD. Its a hell of a milestone though!

They just seriously said an f bomb on the pickit sign

Fukushima isn't a profanity, it is an actual place where there was a radiation leak following a tsunami in 2011.
GoodKaptainKook 3rd Aug 2017, 11:00 PM edit delete reply
Can't believe that was already 6 years ago. I remember clear as a bell when that happened. My mother called me out of my room the night it happened (it was night time where we live at the time it happened) and I CLEARLY remember them showing the tsunami waves coming ashore. Time sure does fly...

Considering that was a major catastrophe with thousands of deaths and a near nuclear catastrophe, I don't know how you WOULDN'T have heard of it unless you pay very little attention to the world news. Which is a common problem in the States, unfortunately-a country where history is our worst school subject...

You have seriously never heard of Fukushima before...?

go to Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

and they will tell you the pro and cons of this.

for me, I say let's have cheap long lasting power, that will help us replace the oil and coal for energy and go green.

down side is that lets make sure that power go to a contray that won't use it to make nukes
