Where is the nuclear waste stored? And for how long?
Yes I did read it and admit my rebuttal was a bit histrionic. My main thesis is that a nuclear power fallout can have devastating consequences across the globe. Even oil and coal plants are much more contained than that. There is also a finite amount of uranium supply, so it is not the solution to long term energy use, and storing all of those spent rods takes thousands of years- quite a burden on your grandchildren's grandchildren's grandchildren's great great grandchildren.
My source is a peer reviewed scientific journal. Yours is by a dude with a blog.
Solar PV requires little to no maintenance. Most of the maintenance requires spraying the panels down with a hose every summer. I can't believe people still consider nuclear as a viable economical, alternative.
What is the average lifespan for a nuclear plant? Meanwhile, solar PV installed on US space stations and satellites are still operating since the 1950s.
And how is storing nuclear waste for tens of thousands of years Even being considered as a sane solution? Oh yeah, I know, its recyclable, bla bla bla, meanwhile, California kelp is now contaminated with radioactivity frm the Fukishima disaster a year ago.
Solar is one of the best investments for an energy source- it guarantees you a set energy rate while traditional utility rates rise 3-8% a year. The size of the space used for the solar farm goes to show how much power these server farms use. Only 9% is a very low number. Perhaps Apple can have the building audited once its operational and they can find ways to conserve energy use further which would lower their dependence on the grid.
Yes I understand they are introductions, which is why I said it replaces a semester only, not a whole course.Also, some iTunes u catalogs are downloaded right into the app and not into iBooks, adding to the confusion.
I downloaded the renewable energy course by Open University. This is a considerable amount of information consisting of videos, lesson plans, a place to take notes and highlight key information, and it is presented in an articulate manner. I am always finding new things to do on my new iPad but I never thought it would replace a college semester It is confusing, though, that the materials download into iBook instead of the iTunes U app. I hope Apple streamlines it more in...
