    The brain damaged chimps in Congress and the Senate and their puppet masters are totally deluded about the technological level
    of the USA in the nuclear sector. Since they drink their piss-fermented propaganda koolaid about how America is number 1 in
    everything they actually believe that America can do whatever it wants. Like build a nuclear power plant. This, of course,
    is a total joke.

    These clowns are trying to use sanctions and legislative blackmail to force countries around the world not to buy Russian nuclear
    plants. The US thinks it owns the planet and that it can impose import restrictions into other countries. The same
    BS it pulled in the early 1990s to block Japanese vector super-computers from competing fairly with Cray and which gave us
    the scalar parallel garbage that never quite lived up to its claims. The US is also applying its extra-territorial protectionism
    to the EU and oil and gas imports from Russia.

    So they where competing in a not serious manner and instead they will become serious?

    They will compete in Artic in nuclear technology in hypersonic in oil and gas in geopolitics ... I only see they are loosing and from totem reinstating claims we are the

    greatest nation on earth should instead scream we have the biggest debt on planet and turn off that ego.

    The funny thing is how they want to ban the import of MOX from Russia. These retards don't even know that America cannot produce
    MOX. It was never a charity for Russia, it was because Carter banned fuel reprocessing in the USA in the late 1970s. That is over 40
    years ago. During this time the USA never developed any capacity for fuel reprocessing and lost any human capital to run such operations.
    It's not as if there are moth-balled facilities that can be operated by burger flippers. They have neither the physical plant nor the workers.

    Nuclear fuel reprocessing is not some trivial activity. It is complex and involves phyrochemistry innovation. France has MOX production
    capability but Russia is number one in the world (for real, not some vapid US style masturbation) in this field.

    I thought nuclear energy is not green enough for millennials?

    They dont have a fast breeder reactor, they dont have Gen3+ reactors for crying out loud.

    Westinghouse built a Gen3+ (AP1000) reactor in China. But the coolant pump failed. Westinghouse went bankrupt because
    it couldn't handle real world construction demands in spite of its AP1000 model. The only reason China is able to deploy
    the AP1000 is because of its own skilled workforce.

    An MIT report on the state of the US nuclear power industry, one of the few truthful assessments, identifies the reasons for
    its failure. In particular the loss of qualified personnel due to a 40 year gap in reactor construction. I posted the link in
    another thread a while ago.

    It should be noted that building a new reactor takes a decade to complete, that's assuming they have an established design without flaws, and for them to train a new generation of young nuclear physicists your talking about  another 20-25 years. By the time their ready to 'compete' with Rosatom, the gap would of widened to 65 years!

    Putin offered the world in 2006 to transition to nuclear power to get off the oil crack. He proposed six fuel reprocessing
    centers that would be under IAEA control that would disburse fuel to reactors in countries such as Iran and take back
    their "waste" for reprocessing. Bush appeared to like it but wanted one of the centers in the USA (for obvious reasons).
    But Putin's proposal was torpedoed and we are stuck in the fossil fuel dead end.

    I suspect that the oil lobby exerted its influence once again on western regimes. The oil majors are self-anointed masters
    of the universe. For example, Exxon is the prime financier of global warming denial (to the tune of hundreds of millions of
    dollars spent on shills and rotten journalists). GM did the oil companies major favours in the middle of the last century by
    buying out and closing all the electric urban rail (tramway) systems to replace them with diesel buses. Even though the
    oil age is clearly in decline due to resource decline, these transnationals refuse to adapt and pretend they can engage
    in business as usual forever.

    Another reason why Putin's proposal did not fly in the precious west is anti-nuclear paranoia and psychosis. Western
    sheeple are seriously f*cked up in the head when it comes to nuclear power. For example, France's Superphenix
    program was sabotaged by outright terrorism, mass protests and the French Green Party. Even though this was
    a viable fast neutron breeder reactor program that would have consumed so-called nuclear waste.

    Agree complete! Go green means go nuclear!
