    One of the chief complaints against nuclear power plants is accumulation of waste and the potential dangers of that waste given possible, future hypothetical events.

    What is completely forgotten is the topic of fossil fuel waste. Our real choices are fossil fuel OR nuclear for the level of power needed to run modern society. BOTH have a “waste problem.” Not just nuclear.

    Fossil fuel waste is “out of sight, out of mind.” It is thrown immediately into the air, mostly invisible to us. But it contains both CO2 and tiny fragments related to burning coal, oil or natural gas, and those particles cause immediate human injury and deaths.

    The NYT published a report that in the US alone the health bill for pollution, mostly from burning fossil fuel, is $120 billion every single year. This is very different from the possible, hypothetical harm environmentalists and others charge against nuclear power.

    The actual injury and death caused by nuclear is far, far less than that of fossil fuel. (“How Deadly Is Your Kilowatt?” Forbes, 6/10/12). Coal alone causes 170,000 deaths per trillion kWhr electricity generated, while nuclear caused 90 deaths for the same power generated, including Chernobyl and Fukushima. Repeat: 170,000 vs 90.

    I urge EDF to start a comparative discussion of the human toll of nuclear vs fossil fuel. using actual injury and deaths, not possible, hypothetical future events. We must remind anti-nukes of the ongoing and immediate costs we pay for fossil fuel waste “storage” in our precious earth atmosphere, including destruction of the planet’s ability to support humans and other life.

    Dear Environmentalists:

    Want to save the planet, maybe?

    Its simple. Fossil fuel is killing your Mother Earth. Nuclear Power can save it, or slow its deterioration.

    Why? Burning fossil fuel like coal, natural gas and oil emits CO2 which continues to warm the planet without end.

    Nuclear power emits ZERO CO2, methane or any greenhouse gas. It works and supplies 20% of US power accident free.

    Sixty years ago the US Navy tested all power sources to find the cheapest, safest, the best – they chose nuclear power for over 100 subs, carriers and other ships. Not ONE sailor has become ill or died from working, sleeping and eating next to nuclear reactors for years and years.

    But those so-called environmental groups are against it! They say its nothing but bad, bad, bad. Their proof?

    They have none, but they don’t care. They are just against it – period. One told me her mind was “shut tight on nuclear forever.” In other words, no more facts please.

    But Fukushima killed not one single person. (the tsunami killed thousands). Nor will released radiation according to the UN.

    But environment groups have made big business out of their anti-nuclear theme, recruiting people they scare as due paying members and getting foundation grants to close nuclear plants (and get people back on fossil fuel which is exactly what happens when a nuclear plant closes.)

    Explore the real numbers – read Forbes “How Deadly is Your Kilowatt?” 6/10/12 and see a study of exactly how many humans are harmed or killed by each energy source.

    We need to do one thing more than anything else regarding global warming – get off fossil fuel as fast as possible.

    I have observed that online degree is getting preferred because attaining your degree online has developed into popular solution for many people. Numerous people have not had a possible opportunity to attend a normal college or university although seek the raised earning possibilities and a better job that a Bachelors Degree provides. Still other people might have a degree in one field but would choose to pursue something they now have an interest in.
