Nuclear free or not?

I think I read something this week that suggested that the National Party wanted to drop our anti-nuclear status. I kind of like being nulcear free and wonder what others think about it...

I spose the technology has progressed a lot since Chernobyl. I am saving for a solar panelling system for our home. My uncle has one and he is no longer connected to the national grid. He's got battery packs for backup and everything. It's pretty swish. Apparently he even got subsidies for the purchase.

I'm not worried about it - i'd love to see a huge American warship in person. :)

New Zealand has about as much political clout and bite as a 2 year old on Ritalin against the US government ,but what we can do is tell em to stick their "im not going to disclose whether this ship is carrying nuclear weapons to you plebians" **** up where moms apple pie comes out after 2 days ...if David Lange were stil alive he would beat the faciast out of Don Brash with the leg they took from him ,or at the very least make him look like a intellectual fkwit like he did to so many other politicians with his rhetoric and wit .So heres to David Lange...a big Chur Bro....and heres to the US Government on Nukes in This beautifull country we call NZ ....go fk yoself Bush you fkn meglomaniac  :dfinger:  :dfinger:  :dfinger:

I can see the 'war on terror' being shifted to New Zealand from Iraq soon.

Not sure of the reason, but probably something along the lines of "The New Zealand people are taking over the Hollywood movie industry - we must put a stop to this now before all American filmmakers no longer dominate the market".

Well, I have a lot of thoughts on this issue!

Nuclear power: I am not totally against it, but from a purely technical perspective, NZ does not have the requirement for Nuclear power. Unlike other forms of generation, nuclear power cannot be turned off. It assumes that you will always have a requirement for the full amount produced. In the states the solve this problem by linking power grids between the states, always giving the power a use. In NZ, we dont have the requirement for a large amounts of power (which nuclear generates), and we dont have a constant supply requirement. I am much more in favour of tidal generation. Seems like a cost effective, environmentally friendly, and non-eyesore solution, as we can place these generators close to the requirement. We can add more in time as required to meet new demand. I am yet to hear any reasoning why they are not such a good idea... would like some informed debate on them though.

In terms of America, we need trade to get rid of our deficits... but we sure as hell do not need to side with the "with me or against me" bollixs that the Bush adminstration has become. Get rid of Bush, and suddenly we will want more to do with America, provided he is replaced with a more socialistic (I cant believe I just said that!) party / president. America need to stop complaining about the splinter in my eye, when they have a log in theirs.

I cant understand why we choose to side ourselves with China however, America's wrongdoings are very obvious, and very reported. China however, is no better. America - terrorise the Arab nations / oil nations. China terrorise their own people in search of country growth.

Both countries are technically trying to improve the nations wealth and position in the world, or they are trying to make $$$$billions for a select number of people... depends which side of the fence you are.
