I'm not afraid of the risks. 

As for the spill, when was the last one that occurred in Europe?

    That plan works great for a small amount of people, but what about the masses? 

    I'm glad you choose to live the way you do.  I have no issue with it, but I like my gas powered car, lawn mower, motorcycle. 

    Thanks for your response.  We will just disagree on this.

    One car/ one person at the time.   

    I have to warn you. Never drive a Tesla model S. Your mind will be changed forever.

    It will be good for EVERYBODY..... Yes the masses. 

    It seemed that I walked into the store one day, and there were LPs, then suddenly they were CDs....

    Just observe the change. Sometimes I was the last one to change too.  I was one of the last ones to get a cell phone, one of the last ones to get on facebook.

    Change happens. Where are all those film cameras?

    There are ways to 2x the output of solar. The price will be lower, you will be getting solar also. eventually.

    It will also be nice to leave the garage in the morning with a full tank. No fumes.... etc etc...

    All of the pains of an electric car will be erased, and you will change too.

    But I have to win, first!  :-)

      The most recent leak I'm aware of was last April. Maybe you'd be afraid of the risks if your ignorance of them wasn't interfering. Maybe you'd be afraid if you realized that the safety of reactors in Europe doesn't  affect the safety of the reactors on our side of the pond.

        What about three mile island?? I mean it was a long time ago, but are there any long term affects from that? The love canal? I mean it was a toxic waste dump not nuclear reactor accident but still is there anyone living around that area? Say what you want radiation is radiation especially when your talking about nuclear reactor accidents

          "It will be good for EVERYBODY"

          See mark, now that's the part that I don't like about you guys.

          You ALWAYS want to include EVERYBODY in whatever you happen to think is a good idea.

          And then your desires always seem to evolve into government enforced mandates that have to be obeyed by everybody  under penalty of fine and imprisonment.

          Do you see my point?

          A lot of us just want to be left alone and not have to conform to other people's wishes or be controlled by other people, no matter how good they think their ideas are.

            Like what? Wearing seatbelts, air bags, speed limits, dumping of garbage and or littering....paying taxes??

            We elect people to go to Washington and this is what they end up doing, they make laws...Now everybody may not like this law or that but we're in a democracy and majority rules...that's just America

                  YES. It is immoral, because it's like you are mocking your co-workers. Remember the story of the dude that turned down million dollars contract from NFL because he wanted to go and join the army and go to iraq. The dude died from friendly fire. What do you people really think happened there. Just saying.

                    So your solution is to sit back and take it, even if it's wrong.

                    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                    For a lead role in a cage?

                        I want to drive through downtown at 90 mph. I want to go through a residental neighborhood blasting a stereo at 120 DB. 

                        You STILL don't have the courage, or don't you care when other peoples "rights" are violated. It's only about YOU.

                        "And then  your desires always seem to evolve into government enforced mandates that have to be obeyed by  everybody  under penalty of fine and imprisonment."

                        YOU CONSERVATIVES ARE THE BIGGEST DEPRIVERS OF LIBERTY. 

                        Yep, Telsa Motors, can not offer test rides, they can not mention the features, they can not metion prices, they can NOT display a sign.  under penalty of fine and imprisonment.

                        Do you see my point?

                        That is what YOU CONSERVATIVES are all about. Taking RIGHTS  from people.

                        Two faced, piggish, selfish.

                        I was told all my life that in this great country. Except for yelling fire in a theatre, wou have the right to say whatever you want. Thanks to the COMMUNIST REPUBLICAN PARTY that right is GONE!!!!!!!

                        JUST ONE EXAMPLE!

                        I am a bigger fighter of personal liberty than you.  But that also includes personal responsibilty.

                          You have all this so incredibly backwards it's unbelieveable. Sounds like you're from the liberal school of making believe you preach tolernace and free speech until someone says something you don't agree with. Then if you can't really counter it you try and reverse it or call it a lie.

                          Communist Republican Party? Oh there's commies in US politics but they're not the Republicans.

                          Let's see, who are the gun grabbers?

                          That's just one example of many, but as the sage said don't evern discuss things with anyone who voted for obama twice because they are too stupid to argue with.

                          Since you're such a great fighter for personal liberty what was your military service, if any? I'm guessing your username reflects your birth year. Did you get called up or suddenyl become Amish, or perhaps go to Canada for a little while?

                          Communist Republican Party?

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Lep

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                              No but are your saying that you only want to follow the laws that you want to?? I said there are going to be laws that you like and dont like but we live in a democracy, majority rules so you're not gonna get your way all the time that's all I was trying to say
