Given the fact of rising oil prices, Presidential Candidate Senator McCain wants to build 45 new atomic power plants. During his Presidential race, President Bush also announced that he wants new atomic power plants to be build. Guess what? Nothing happened during his 8 years. And nothing will happen during the McCain or Obama Presidency. Why?
Simply because atomic reactors are too expensive. For example the new reactor in Finland – which is funded by the Bavarian Bank – with 2,000,000,000 EUROs. That’s 45 times 2,000,000,000 EUROs according to McCain’s plans. And this is what McCain wants, this is what the IAEA wants. They want to destroy money, it seems.
Atomic reactors never never amortize. Really, never. They become more and more expensive instead. Why?
If you build one reactor, more Uranium is needed. Uranium has a worldwide range of 60 years – that’s the way Oil goes: Up the price. So, if you build more reactors, you need more Uranium. Uranium will be more expensive and new energy wars will be on the horizon. More and more costs. As said, this hopefully will never happen.
McCain also said, his ultimate goal would be: 100 new atomic reactors.
Since the 1970ies not a single reactor was build in the U.S.
