    Only fools would advocate totally removing nuclear power safety safeguards.
    What I and many with PhDs are advocating is radiation safety standards were devised back when the only data points we had...
  2. Plutonium produced by commercial reactors is...

    Plutonium produced by commercial reactors is useless for making bombs. Pu-240 contamination leads to serious risks of weapon premature detonation (spontaneous fission). Plus spontaneous fission when...

    You need to understand the real and huge difference from Fukushima 1960s design gen ii nuclear reactor and a Westinghouse AP1000 (gen iii+).
    AP1000 can shutdown safely and cooldown for 3 days...

    Only on FOX would an idiot loosely resembling Homer Simpson be allowed to clean the floors of a nuclear power plant.
    Once again, Hollywood tells you BS, you take it as gospel.
    Please educate...

    While you are guessing, I'm studying technical data. While you are making fun of it. I'm reading posts / watching videos from many PhDs working on Throrium / Uranium Molten Salt reactors on exactly...

    Fact 1 - Radiation levels both on Fukushima and...

    Fact 1 - Radiation levels both on Fukushima and Chernobyl are bellow those of either grand central station and St Peter Square (heavy alpha radiation from thousands of tons of granite).
    Fact 2 -...

    The course does spend one out of 8 weeks on radiation and another week on nuclear safety and nuclear certification standards.
    Most data about hydro, coal and natural gas accidents I got from...
  8. I took the intro course after having studied...

    I took the intro course after having studied radiation and nuclear technology for about 18 months using less formal sources.
    I got an A+ grade (78 of 80 questions answered right).
    The main reason I...

    The reason we don't hear much about Fukushima is the situation is under control. Leakage of some radioactive materials into the ocean is orders of magnitude less than the millions of tons of lead...

    It's been proven that the only stable solution is a decent minimum standard of life. We are seeing middle class in many developing worlds turning from heavy population growth to negative growth, why...

    Let's see, USA nuclear plant operators undergo training every 6 weeks. So every single procedure is so deeply ingrained in their minds, it's unlikely for any significant mistake to be made.

    Bad Russian reactor = Chernobyl
    increase in reactivity when control rods initially inserted (the primary reason for the accident)
    no secondary containment (should they had serious secondary...

    Sorry to be an ass, this is aggravating for me.

    Your making assumptions that show me you don't know the basic concepts required to truly understand x32 (and its implications).
    Bottom line, you're...

    x32 is a plain linear model, pure C/C++ core can be recompiled in many cases with no changes at all. And if changes are needed they are tiny (assuming the code is already compatible with both 32-bit...

    Nice display of ignorance.
    If you're unable explain technically why it's not worth and then please keep your opinions to yourself.

    There's no magic about how x32 works exactly.
    The only way that x32 could be slower than regular 32bit or x86_64 is some system calls that require conversion of the pointers passed.
    Plus this set...

    Wrong

    Most people running those benchmarks that say x32 don't help have a vested interest against it.

    It's essentially impossible x32 won't help at least a little.

    Pointers are everywhere, and most...
