A Positive Alstry Post!!!!



December 27, 2009 – Comments (10)

Korea Inks $20.4 Billion Nuclear Deal With U.A.E.

If Alstry was going to make one postive would be a bet that Nuclear Power will dominate the world in the next twenty years.  Despite terrorist attacks, unstable governments, among other issues...the world is still rushing to develop nuclear power....even in the Middle East.

It will likely be the trigger for the biggest postive convulsive change in Human History.....the world will be able to develop with cheap electricity and power pretty much anything economically.....regardless of current geographical constraints.

High Speed Electric Trains.....

Electric Cars.....

No need for fossil fuells....

Readily available access to the World Wide Web everywhere

Information exchange will be collaberative and instantaneous....all over the world.  Human technological advances will acellerate and so will our standard of living.

This is how The Institute of Alstrynomics sees the world just a few years down the road.........

Shaw is building a major manufacturing facility down the road from me now, specializing in nuclear reactor components so...from where I sit (literally), it all falls in line with nuclear power having some definite advantages...enough to perpetuate expansion currently, across the globe or down the road... 

Really though, I'm still shocked at the positive post!!! +REC and may you have a wonderful New Year (as you know it) ...

Happy New Year Alstry

There is still the issue of spent fuel storage, the design used to build them, and the type. It would be great if the world could settle on a single design to minimize the potential problems but the probability of this is zero.

Hydroelectric, solar, and wind are the safest approaches if used in an array.

The Sarhara desert seems like a logical place for solar and it has a massive untapped aquafer. It would be interesting to consider the idea of generating power in one location for an entire region in that part of the world but it isn't likely to happen any time soon.

Merry Christmas and happy New Year! Do you think the U.S. will soon end its senseless ban on nuclear reprocessing?

In my opinion I would rate the chances that the company receives the funding when all Is said and done at about 50/50. Definitely a gamble,but the company Is a pure play,and I do not think the government wants to contribute to their failure. It would't look good when we have 10% unemployment,and Obama desperate to create jobs.... I am a buyer under 5 bucks....   TS

A relatively useful blog.  Congratulations.  For those who wish to learn something meaningful, I offer a magazine article I wrote a little more than a year ago.

It should answer most questions,

Take your time.  It's a complex subject.

Actually not that complicated.....written very clearly for the lay person to read........unlike Alstry's style the screaming blogger,  and for a pancake eater, you have an excellent pedigree.... so I figured since you are too modest I would give you a plug.
