Actually if the concentrated nuclear waste isotopes were melted into and blended with glass it wouldn't be harmful to anyone as long as no one spent a lot of time right on top of the glass monolith. Placing the glass in an abandoned mine would almost be over kill. Then in as little as 200 to 300 years it would be barely distinguishable from things with naturally occurring elevated levels of radiation like granite or bananas.
So it's only "dangerous forever" if it's not recycled and not disposed of properly.
With the way politics are, by the time the government decides what to do with the glass monoliths the radio isotopes may decay to where they could be tossed in a land fill.

Obviously the best way to create a lot more usable energy is nuclear. I believe in the US something like 96 or 97 nuclear reactors on 47 or 48 sites pride between 15 and 20% of energy needs. The US has spent billions of dollars on wind and solar and it barely carved out a noticeable sliver on the old energy production pie chart.
Wind and solar are cheaper than nuclear.They come online much quicker as well.There's no longer a viable business for 'new' nuclear.
Running the existing nuclear infrastructure until it's normal life is over would provide a lot of zero carbon generating capacity.
Existing power demand is elastic when on a wartime footing.And we appear to be in a fight for our lives.

There's nothing 'theoretical' about it.
Observations improve. Here's GOES14 at a 1 per minute frame rate:



Earthspots are not high or low air pressure, but an electrical phenomenon at the convergence.

This is an end-run around the media.

If wind and solar are so cheap and so quick to build why after 20 years of wide scale adoption has it barely carved out a sliver on our total energy produced pie chart?

I only have a 2 year associates degree in wind and solar power generation as of 2016, but what do I know.

The guy that reviewed that paper in 2009, James Shirley works at nasa JPL and edited the encyclopedia of interplanetary sciences. Right now he appears to be studying the effects of solar minimum on mars climate. Probably because of the political back lash attached to suggestion that man made global warming may not be the driving force behind climate change on earth.
You might say he sees the big picture like no one else.

This is great news.

Yes, civil rights movements extorted South Africa to end Apartheid by divestment. That's it!

We, the taxpayers, have paid a lot of money to raise the docks at Norfolk.

Why is that, I wonder? Could it be that they have seen about 18" higher sea level?

I have spent upwards of 6,000 to 7,000 dollars on them, so obviously I love them.
My position is that the climate has been changing for the last several billion years and now man thinks he is the driving force.
I have always said the planet is warming, as it has been for the last 10,000 to 12,000 years, i would be more worried if it were cooling and man likely has some effect.
Look up John Tyndall.

We KNOW that humans are driving climate change, because of the three isotopes of carbon.

Look it up. Tell us what you learn.

And now it's all crashing down. The only hope I see is to partition the country with the Khoisan and Whites on one side and the Bantu on the other.

That carbon isotope thing is only telling us what portion is released by man. We know we use a lot of carbon fuel, something to the tune of 15 quadrillion BTU per year.

South Africa, a british colony it was...
Australia was also a colony from British, but no as racist as the deep racism of South Africa.
Why???

South Africa, even after slavism end, treated black people like trash, didn't gave education and ways to develope a civilized culture (past of rival tribes joined by force), and after they (blacks) took power they didn't manage to keep the country productive and safe, since these populations was neve educated to be civilized, but mostly expolited.

The white south africans was very racist, and many are paying for it now. But the good-will whites are in the same situation.
