Responses to LWR comments in Discover Magazine article, how Molten Salt Reactors would cost less with greater safety.
Storing nuclear waste can be done. What are the design requirements for a workable storage method? Better than “stick it in the ground and hope we’re safe”…
What To Do With Nuclear Waste? In the right type of reactor, you can Fission it, instead of storing it. We operated one for 5 years, and it works. Lower environmental impact than almost any other energy source.
Existing technology can eliminate nuclear waste, if we build what has been demonstrated. No technological breakthroughs needed (but regulatory miracle needed), to have a safer and less expensive reactor eliminate long-term nuclear waste.
MSRs can’t have loss of coolant accidents, can’t have high-pressure explosions, produce no CO2, use uranium or thorium as fuel, eliminate long-term nuclear waste, are cleaner & cost less than coal or oil.
