Nuclear is NOT clean. The waste which piles up in the open air around the power plants in open tanks is not clean nor is it safe. The waste is highly radioactive and as such a serious poison to the environment and people. Carcinogen. The nuclear power plants do nothing in the USA to clean up their waste. They just keep claiming that their product is "clean" despite all of the evidence to the contrary.
"Plutonium-239, which is in irradiated fuel, has a half-life of 24,400 years. It is dangerous for a quarter million years..." http://www.nirs.org/factsheets/hlwfcst.htm
Hanford " And despite some progress, the site's most complicated and potentially dangerous waste issue - 56 million gallons (255 million litres) of high-level radioactive waste sitting inside tanks at the centre of the site - is facing more problems. "
San Onofre Or hey just bury it in an earthquake zone at the beach.
Stop looking for engery solutions in nuclear it is not the way. Especially when alternatives exist. Distributed solar, wind etc.
The problem with distributed solar is the power companies don't make as much money. Sucks that the world gets destroyed and not just the world but always the most beautiful settings get polluted by the nuclear industry. And it sucks that companies and the government keeps prioritizing profit over the health and safety of humanity and the planet.
We need to stop using this technology. Period. No more nuckear anything.
Fine artists and other small producers for whom copyright is an important protection are getting royally screwed by everyone only focusing on technology and industrial giants. If I spend several weeks to complete a painting for which I am paid very little if I manage to sell it, and then some asshole comes along and copies it claiming fair use, I just want to wrap my little fingers around his neck and shake him all the while screaming "fuck you!" "fuck you!". Not everyone is a tech giant and not everyone's work should be free for the stealing.
You can't copyright a common word. It follows that you should not be able to trademark one either. Also, the Kentucky University's logic would imply that the State of Kentucky is also infringing their "trademark" as well as the Federal Government and anyone else using the word Kentucky in any documentation whatsoever. Ridiculous.
