Since 1971 not a single person has died in the USA due to nuclear power (this period includes 3-Mile Island). 35 have died due to wind power.

Overall wind power kills perhaps 200 times as many per unit energy as nuclear.

Cy, you are a sick racist. This is causing starvation for millions, but they are black Africans so that is OK, I suppose?

"Because trillions of dollars of "taxpayer" money will go to huge corporations?"

Like that's not already happening in an oil economy.

@thubanstar: Bio-Fuels already DID raise the price of staple foods: namely rice!
That's because they're doing it ass-backwards! Using "food grade" corn instead of "non-food byproducts". Why? Because it's CHEAPER! (more efficient actually, which increases output a LOT thus making it "cheaper" while still costing TWICE as much as oil...)
The increased demand for corn cause it's price to rise sharply. That in turn caused ALL other grains to rise. But rice was hardest hit, since a small increase in price makes a big % difference in Asian nations, it really hurt the poorest of the poor the WORST.
I saw rice go from $11 a bag to $25 literally overnight... It's "back down" to about $17 now...

Overpopulation is indeed humanity's #1 problem. Along with Capitalism's "always expand" doctrine. You certainly have that correct!

One more thing. The root of EVERY ONE of these problems is OVERPOPULATION which is caused by 1. Backwards countries and religions who still think having all the babies they can is a great idea, and 2. The capitalist ideal which wants to Grow GROW GROW!!! and never takes a hard look at what all that growth will cost in the long run. Yeah, I know, you may disagree, but it really does not matter since, if we don't fix this stuff, we are totally screwed anyway, which is why I'm laughing at MrPeabody's comment. "Real problems" Please, these problems are about as real as it gets, silly man.

5Cats, speaking as a person who recently married a man with a degree in Environmental Science, and who spends her days hearing about this kind of thing, I can tell you this is bull that you are spouting. Bio-fuel is NOT going to raise the price of food, that's propaganda from oil companies as is most of the B.S. you hear about alternate fuel.

Right, it'll only cost about $100 trillion per degree Celsius. That's pretty close to nothing.

Because Nuclear power is not safe. 3 mile island, Chernobyl, fudgeushima I Nuclear Power Plant, Japan.
Then you have the waste that has to store for about as long as man has been walking the earth. If the could get Nuclear fusion to work then it would be green.

It is odd that energy independence would be on top of that list as it is in the name of the environment that technologies that would give us energy independence are being blocked.

The only flaw with this argument is that it's not for Nothing, there is a real cost. I am not arguing that we should not be environmentally responsible, but we should also be sure we are fixing real problems before spending billions on them, putting people out of work etc.

Um? Because trillions of dollars of "taxpayer" money will go to huge corporations?
>Because electricity and fuel bills will DOUBLE or TRIPLE and harm the poor far more than pollution would?
>Because "bio-fuel" raises the price of FOOD which will cause millions of deaths due to starvation?
>Because the ONE clean, safe source of "green power" is utterly ignored by the AGW crew? Nuclear = less greenhouse gas than ANYTHING and works 24/7/365, unlike ALL the other "green power" scams...

That was easy! Got any more "paper tiger" for me to slay?
