We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Nuclear Power Plants That Can Fit In A Backyard Are A Real Possibility

9th October 2017

Read it.

Companies interested in building small-scale nuclear reactors are getting attention at the Department of Energy (DOE) after Secretary of Energy Rick Perry endorsed the idea in a speech in late September, the Washington Examiner reports.

Perry spoke of the concept in a speech to the National Clean Energy Week conference. He said the crisis in Puerto Rico showed the potential benefits of creating a transportable, long lasting source of energy.

Cue eco-Nazi hysteria.

Licensing and regulations are currently major roadblocks for development. Most attempts at building mini reactors haven’t proceeded past the blueprint phase, according to the WNA.

As usual, government is standing in the way of progress.
