As for what Battle Dude said. Unfortunately I think anyone in a position to make a difference thinks the same and doesn't want to ruin their retirement pot.
No 3rd world countries should have nuclear, period. I like your hydrogen storage concept as long as it's not used to develop heavy water and ends up bombs. Maybe we ought to forego this conversation, however, as I think we've now taken it way beyond RC!
