The Nuclear Option

America, as much of the world knows, is out of energy. Despite importing a quarter of the world's oil, it is out of energy and being now a Leftist nation, it is in the gravity well of the black hole of "clean energy". What this of course means is, fake renewable energy. Of course there is no such thing as the cost in input energy to create the windmills and solar cells far outlasts what they can actually produce in their short lives.

America is also bankrupt.

The only hope that America has is to recreate its industry and to do that it needs cheap energy, something wind turbines will never give you. They might be great for crushing wheat kernels but not for generating electricity.

Enter stage right, Russia.

You want to set the reset button? You want to cut nuclear weapons? You want an electrical grid low in carbon dioxide (not that it really matters in the real world but we'll pretend it does)? You want industry to grow and jobs for your people?

Well welcome Mr. Civilian Nuclear Power or Mr CiNP or rather Mr. Russian CiNP. Russia is an expert on building nuclear power plant. Yes, before you start, Chernobyl happened and it was a freak accurance (unless you buy into the theory it was staged and knowing the CIA/MI6 it just may have been) but a lot of lessons were learned from it. Furthermore, unlike the US, which has not built a nuclear station in over thirty years, Russia has vast experience in both this and in turning nuclear weapons material into safe nuclear rods for nuclear power giant explosion guarenteed or your money back.

The advantages are many. Unlike wind turbines or solar cells, a nuclear power station will last over fifty years and provide not only hundreds of jobs in construction but hundreds of jobs in running it. It also takes up a much smaller foot print, both on the ground and visually than hundreds of rusting metal poles, sticking hundreds of meters in the air. But best of all, nuclear power costs a mere 2 rubles an hour, or about 6 American cents, compare that to wind, which runs closer to 20 rubles.

So, from 2,100 to 1,500 each, that is a yield of 1,200 nuclear decommissioned warheads, more than enough fuel to power most of the United States and Russia for decades to come. Remember, this is enriched Plutonium, not low grade Uranium.

So here is the deal: send Russia the nuclear warheads, and your inspectors. We will reprocess them for a fee. We will build your reactors and ship them to you, while you build the controls and housing. We will install them and get it up and running, and as Prime Minister Putin, early last year offered, we will, for another fee, take your spent fuel rods and dispose of them also, down some very deep hole in our Siberian not worry, thanks to the Soviets, we have plenty.

This will help our economy, this will help your economy, this will help the poor little eagles being turned into stir fry by the giant turbines. Best of all, the Watermelons will hate it and despise it, while sitting in their air conditioned houses (or heated) behind their electricity eating computers.

The problem with building nuclear plants is the watermelons file constant lawsuits to tie it up in court for decades. In order to get that Alaska pipeline built it took an act of congress to shut down the lawsuits.
America's infrastructure is crumbling and we simply can't afford to maintain or upgrade it. Not with every third worlder on the planet coming to our shores to sponge off our welfare benefits.

It's now too late for America that is racing toward a liquid fuels catastrophic shortfall. America had decades to plan for it but put on green blinders. Now with Obama and his like that are brain dead on energy and economics there is not the slightest hope to avoid the coming crackup.

Good article, but it begs the question.

The leftists want a de-industrialized America. They are using the Green Movement as a pretext to do it.

The leftists want a bankrupt America because they want a one world currency.

The leftists want to deconstruct America as a Western Judeo Christian superpower so they can advance the cause of a global government.

Various Soviet dissidents and native anti communists warned us about this since the 1950s. In 1961, the US House SubCommittee on UnAmerican Activites published a famous list of 42 subversive methods to undermine the United States. Take over academia. Take over Hollywood. Encourage immorality. Infiltrate the Environmental Movement. etc. etc.

The left has succeeded wildly in all these things. The election of Obama heralds a hard push for the final victory of the left. No one in this country can stop them, or wants to.

America is finished.

Mat...appreciate your thoughts. I am sorry where America is going to. Hope in God, not man.

One other thought; America is NOT "out of energy" as you claim. America has enough natural gas to run the country for 100 years at least. We have huge oil reserves; larger than Saudi Arabias. We know how to build dams, and nuclear power plants.

The problem is, we have elitists and politicians who are blocking the use of domestic energy for whatever reasons they have, good or bad.

There is no shortage of energy. And as long as capitalist, free market, Judeo Christian oriented countries exist, we will never stop progressing toward the Holy Grail of energy sources: Fusion. Within 100 years, the West will unlock the secrets of creating energy from fusion.

What Americans REALLY need to be worrying about is preventing the leftists from de-technologizing the West, and forcing the world back into the middle ages for their own insane, delusional agendas.

Remember, this debate is NOT about conserving energy or the destruction of the environment. It's about GETTING RID OF ENERGY USE by the "evil consumer culture of the United States" while profiteering on cap and trade laws that hobble America's economy.

America has plenty of untapped energy sources but unfortunately the grown-ups are not in charge anymore, we have vast supplies of coal and a lot of oil that we are not permitted to drill for because of the environmental kooks.

There is a new Green Revolution that stands to make a lot of money for a few people, this whole global warming climate change nonsense is a hoax instigated not to save the planet but to control people and channel a direction for society, hello global plantation. How can so many be so blind?

You got it right Jonathan!

America does not have an energy crisis. This is a lie promoted by "our" government and the Enemy establishment media. For shocking proof of these statements see Lindsey Williams' speech, The Energy Non-Crisis in which he describes how he witnessed the discovery of a two hundred year supply of oil under Gull Island in Alaska.

Oww. That hurt.

So many of us fume over our current incompetence....and you throw big bags of salt.
