Current Topic:
only bad attitude causes economic loss in peaceful use of atomic power plants
not true! WE HAVE LOTS! The problem is that until relatively recently it was not profitable to bring it to market. It was often either flared as a waste product, or re-injected to boost oil output. Qatar is just bringing online the LARGEST gas field in the world. and there are currently a dozen LNG terminal proposals pending federal approval to be built or are in the process of being built, to take that gas.

and even if all the subsurface gas is used, there are trillions of Cubic feet of methane tied up as metane hydrates on the sea floor, more than all known gas reserves combined. we just gotta figure out how to mine it.
