Well, the title of your thread is "The End is Near" loli more so said if this does happen. i didnt say it was GOING to happen but the odds of another natural disaster over there and the possibility of it screwing up whats left is high.
Sorry, I meant the articles you originally posted as being from anti-nuclear.also since when is Berkeley an anti nuclear site? lol.
Japan already invented that. I don't know why it isn't being used (if it's not feasible on a grand scale or if it's just being squashed because it would kill the oil industry), but I definitely think it should be a priority, especially since fossil fuels aren't renewable and we don't even know the HALF LIFE on plastics.
