Plutonium

“…the already mined depleted uranium in the United States alone is enough to supply the entire energy demand of all of humanity for almost a century if converted to plutonium.”

So concludes an excellent and detailed article by guest commenter, NNadir on www.atomicinsights.com. I highly recommend the website and the article.

There are so many solutions to the problem of supplying energy to humanity that it reminds me of a scene from the comedy movie, “Bruce Almighty”. Jim Carrey’s character is praying for sign.  God sends him sign after sign, but he doesn’t recognize them or respond to them in any way.

Are we stuck in the same “scene” with so many different ways of obtaining energy from nuclear binding energy, but refusing to see or use any of them?
