Current Topic:
only bad attitude causes economic loss in peaceful use of atomic power plants
Does anyone agree that it is merely bad attitude of humans that causes us to forego the use of atomic power for peaceful power production ? Like fear of bad management causing failure and disaster? Some absolute jerk in the chain of command?

If not, why DO we forgo the economic rewards of cheap and environmentally friendly electric power from atomic power plants?

When I was young, we envisioned abundant, cheap electric energy, to cheap to bother to measure and charge for it.

When we WILL use atomic power in the future, what WILL have changed other than our bad attitude?

Does anyone feel safe enough in his job to discuss this?



I am retired now, so I don't want to be reckless. I know fear rules the economy, besides competition.
