Fukushima not a big enough warning ?

Uranium fission reactors were forced by military interests to have ratepayers subsidize weapons programs. Fission byproducts include explosive Hydrogen, which releases some radiation when vented. Generating plants have a fifty year life, and a 100,000 year radiation signature. In a recent LA Times article on deactivated San Onofre reactor it was mentioned that the US has 79,000 tons of spent fuel rods with no storage plans. There is NO greenhouse gas, so that excuse for nuclear power is mute.

"The B-61, the More Usable Nuke" at VeteransToday has great bibliography on Nuclear Education.
