Until it is proven with low cost very safe and reliable Small Reactors it is still just a napkin idea. QUOTE=Hear the team’s stories in this video and learn more about the collaborative processes for the Small Modular Reactor Manufacturing Project and the Modular In-Chamber EBW Project..

Because of the limited Uranium, the water use and deadly waste I never think a Nuclear idea is ever a good idea.

"Because of the limited Uranium, the water use and deadly waste I never think a Nuclear idea is ever a good idea."

You're far from alone in your opinion, Jim. That it's unjustifiable doesn't make it any less tenacious.
I used to challenge Antinuclearism, but it's become a religion, and challenging anyone's religious beliefs has never been a productive undertaking. As the early Catholic Church once exploited fear of Hell for profit, the fossil fuel industry is successfully exploiting fear of radiation for profit. Science eventually triumphed over the first, and will over the second, too. Whether it will happen soon enough is the only question.
