    All the issues you mention can be managed and/or overcome with technological solutions. Political “leaders” will only push for these if they think the populace wants them. Chicken and egg situation. Ignorance will rule in the short term, but in the long run ignorance makes way for progress. I think in a hundred years nuclear power will be commonplace. But I don’t think it will happen in my lifetime.

    I agree about safe technology being possible.
    But I'm skeptical about government regulation
    being competent.

    I think I have that down now. I was introduced to the concept by this thing called life. It is starting to serve my mental health in numerous ways.

    How about a nuclear-powered toothbrush - for a smile that shines.

    I once had a Revigator.
    It was supposed to make water radioactive...for the health benefits.

    I have seen one of those for Reals. Unfortunately? The one I saw (a different brand of Radium Water Invigorator), was of a cheap knock-off, and did not, in fact, release any measurable radium into the water--even after a week.

    Ironic, isn't it? That the cheap knock-off was safer-- by a wide margin-- than a Genuine Made In America article?

    A friend checked mine for radioactivity.
    It was pretty anemic.
    The best kind of quackery is when the fraud makes it safer.

    Indeed: Snake Oil that contains no actual snake or even oil. Think: Homeopathy. :)
