    Same here. With hydro, geo, solar, wind, nuke, etc. there’s no real need to burn hydrocarbons for power.

    Dirty nasty Florida coal power, for the something

    I have the privilege of living 30 minutes away from Niagara Falls. There is a massive hydro-electric power plant there. It’s the one that Tesla built.

    However, all of the electricity generated there is sold out of state. WTF? Why am I getting energy from coal when I live around the corner from a hydro plant?

    Nothing wrong with Clean Coal. Hydro power has a dark side; floods peoples homes, alters the natural flow of rivers; and so on. I am not saying it is bad, but there is still a price. Nuclear: Clearly the way to go (in addtion to coal). However we have made it to hard to expand – let alone build new; plants. In addition, one of the waste products is hydrogen, which could be used to generate additional electricity, or perhaps in the future used to heat homes. And yes; the trolls humvee is better for the environment then the electric… Read more »

    “the trolls humvee is better for the environment then the electric car.”

    Unless its a single vehicle wreck or a rollover, then you’re screwed.

    nuclear (fission) is, and never was the way to go. Nuclear power is one of the most expensive ways to generate power, don’t forget the hidden costs of disposal, decommisioning, security, maintenance, water demands and environmental impact of the plants. Nuclear never would have survived if it had not been propped up by taxpayer dollars because of the defense industry’s interest in it during the Cold war. Places like France and Japan are heavily reliant on fission plants to generate their power because they are very energy resource poor countries. Both of these countries are plagued with a very troubling… Read more »

    We could, you know, just reprocess it ourselves. Reprocessing isn’t “Bad!” the legislation on it is kinda ridiculous.

    Clean coal is great. But I’m talking about Niagara Falls. You could hang a cup on a stick attached to a Radio Shack electromagnet into the water there and power a neighborhood with it.

    It’s as ridiculous as the fact that most of the oranges tiki eats are probably from Chile.

    Energy generated in a central location is more efficient than energy generated in small multiple locations. Electric cars are clearly superior.

    so, if i drive 30miles roundtrip 5 days a week to engineer nuclear power plants, there are ~200 other engineers and designers, for approximately 10 years (5 years engineering, 5 years construction), exactly how clean is it?

    Donno, nyoks. It was more of a Florida thing.

    If every house had solar panels and a small wind generator then the problem would be solved.
