Surprised the solar powered hydrogen saving containers for future power source hasn't gone main stream yet! The splitting and combining of water through solar power and hydrogen igniting is an endless fuel source. For the rainy days just use your saved up hydrogen in a tank buried underground to keep it from flame and lightning, then on sunny days let the solar power split the hydrogen from the water and save it for your rainy day!
Instead people have to pay billions in taxpayers money to decommission a nuclear power plant for 6 decades that became useless when the foundation cracked. just like all the other power plants that need to or are being decommissioned with billions of dollars that takes decades!
We have all the power of waves in the ocean that are constant, we have endless wind on the ocean, hell we even could make balloons that could rise above the clouds to let solar panels get light all day without any clouds deterring their power creating ability!
Guess you know who has the most nuclear bombs by the amount of reactors in their country! That's how Iran is getting treated!?! ..and how many do we have?

The numbers and facts to the numbers of money lost due to these reactors and much land and much money wasted storing this waste material!
"DOE estimates that the total cost to clean up the nuclear weapons complex over several decades will end up being approximately $264 billion. It is considered the largest environment cleanup program in the world."-Time eng.

This massive cleanup assignment also includes a buried waste retrieval effort known as the Accelerated Retrieval Project. This work involves the retrieval, identification, repackaging and disposition of targeted radioactive waste. And for nearly two decades, one buried waste trench in particular was the poster child for environmental remediation failure.

Pit 9 originally was used from 1967 to 1969 as a disposal site for radioactive contaminated wastes generated from the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons facility in Colorado. In the early 1990s, Pit 9 was proposed for cleanup under the Superfund program. Initial cleanup attempts were mired in cost overruns, technology challenges, missed schedules and eventually a lawsuit."
After reading about "Pit 9" sounds that they are losing ground on where to store this material ,funny how they choose N.M..!

1. People advocating using hydrogen are just idiots.
2. Solar power in theory can make hydrocarbon fuel from water, air, and sunlight. Don't see anyone doing it so it must not be cost effective.
3. Nuclear power plant steel has to be 100,000 times less radioactive than steel from natural gas facilities. Insane regulations are why nuclear dismantlement is expensive.

Reasonable regulations would make nuclear plant dismantlement costs reasonable.
