Nuclear Disasters Minus the Plants

obviously, impending water shortages spell big trouble. if we are at war over oil, i shudder to think what disputes over water will stir up. one thing that doesn’t cross my mind very often is the potential for higher electric bills as nuclear plants deal with water supply shortages. the southeastern region of the country has been alluding to distress for some time and it may now really be hitting the fan. it’s bad enough that i nearly freeze to death trying to be frugal in adjusting to higher oil prices when heating my house, but now i can’t even move south without dealing with potentially spiked heating costs. even worse, with electricity there’s much more to depend upon beyond heating. yikes!

i confess that i know little about how nuclear reactors work, but i am guessing that at least with wind and other forms of sustainable energy, what precious limited water is available can be recycled and i don’t have to worry about terrorists trying to blow things up or some poison seeping into the ground. i guess there’s always a brighter side to any dire situation.
