Interesting nuclear discussions
I just stumbled on this page, which I found interesting. It has some ideas on nuclear power. I especially like the concept of trying to get intelligent people to live transient lives, in the middle of nowhere. I think this will be one of the major problems of the upcoming nuclear expansion. We've already seen that the major nuclear steel forgings can only be done by a handful of dying Japanese in the middle of earthquake hell. What about nuclear-grade pipe welding? And we have read, there aren't any good concrete specialists left in Europe! As it says in the article, the French operate nuclear plants like the post office, and any problems are a national secret.
