    And then there's the hippies...

    Even if we started now, i don't think we'd be able to completely convert everything to run solely on nuclear energy in time.

    Yes, because that is completely relevant and contributes to the discussion... Let's be serious now people.

    Well it was useless and noncontributory... I'm not biased like that, i'm just doing my job. If you have a problem with it, send a VM my way and we can discuss it without interupting the flow of the thread.

    I do believe that per unit, nuclear energy is the most efficient that we have.

    no, solar enegery is more effective because it does not create wastes per unit, unless you mean per unit of enegery attained

    lolwut? Solar energy only accumulates when it's sunny. That's 50% of the time, assuming you live where it's never EVER overcast. How is THAT efficive?

    Also, effective != efficient.

    Alright, I didn't went to read through those eightteen pages so I don't know if this is discussed already.

    What about the Earth itself? We have like, our own small sun in the middle of the Earth. I think, with the right stuff and the right scienists it should be able to draw energy from that.

    Geothermal energy requires geothermal vents. Also, what you just said is completely false, the inside of the earth is molten, but it's not a naturally-occurring nuclear reactor.

    Actually, Earth's core does heat itself through nuclear decay

    Most of the Uranium is concentrated there due to it sinking while the entire Earth was liquid.

    It has kept it from getting colder.


    And for the previous comment about solar only being half the time, if you position a satellite right, almost %100 of the time it's in sunlight.


    And to get that power back to Earth, go look at Nikola Tesla's experiments in wireless power, it should work better in a vacume.
