I agree. The US Navy shows how nuclear power can be used responsibility. Although I don't know all the particulars on commercial nuclear safety etc. I always thought we should follow the Navy's example of nuclear use. Recently read an article in May's Scientific American, titled " Reactor Redo" on how advanced fuels could both improve the safety and economics of todays nuclear power plants. The bottom line is to replace the zirconium cladding on nuclear pellets with other designs. If zirconium overheats, it can react with water (or steam) to produce potentially explosive hydrogen gas. The article goes on to state that manufacturers are testing these so-called accident tolerant fuels that if overheated, are far less likely to create conditions that led to Fukushima disaster. The article went on to describe four different examples of these accident-tolerant fuels.
