    Where are they going to store (for future generations to worry about) the high-level radioactive waste those plants generate?

    If white people could get rid of our chains we’d fairly quickly have space stations where we can fire it at the sun or a black hole somewhere.

    At 2:30 AM my time, my new kitty (Less than one pound.) woke me up. She sat up on the bed and made an aggressive squeal. She then lept off the bed and left the master bedroom. I then heard a loud growl from the spare bedroom. I put on slippers and turned on the lights. She had a large , golden, feral cat trapped in the spare bedroom (A five or more pounder.) The intruder had climbed the outside wall to the third floor balcony and come in for an explorarion. After some shrewd maneuvers on my part, the large feline left. I needed coffee and turned on the internet. Your article scares me more than the mighty kitten scared the big critter.

    They had nuclear waste storage figured even then. Melt it into glass and pour into steel tubes. Volcanic glass has been around…millions of years? Even better we have a Thorium reactor in Tennessee’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Look up Thorium Fluoride reactors. All the power we need forever. If we could just build them. With coal and Thorium Fluoride reactors we could make all the oil we need.
