Belgium Will Eliminate All Nuclear Power Plants By 2025 | Care2 Causes

I live in Idaho - the first nuclear powered city is in our state - Arco, Idaho. I like the fact that the power generation from nuclear energy is clean - hate the fact that there is still no way to safely dispose of the waste. It's been mentioned that some countries use a reprocessing technique to decrease the amount of waste generated. I applaud that approach to plants already in operation. However, if we dramatically increase the number of plants, even with reprocessing, we are left with hundreds (or thousands) of tons of nuclear waste and no where to store it. No one wants it - and I don't blame them. With a combination of a smart power grid which reduces energy loss, geothermal, power, wind and bio technology - I believe we can be independent of fossil and nuclear fuels in the next few decades. http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/05/24/us-utilities-smartgrid-epri-idUSTR...
