ProdigalSigh: I heard the NPR report on this in the morning, The "helped provide 10%" number has to be more like: "added to the nuclear power we use that provides 10% to our grid." But other than that it seems like it was a good program. I wish we'd decommission more of our own similarly, but I'd guess we buried them long before we had the technology to re-use weapons grade stuff for power.Hell I didn't even know it was possible to reuse the weapons grade stuff until I heard the report./Shoulda studied nuclear science//Still wear dark glass
Lost Thought 00: I hope so. This fuel can only be used for nuclear power plants, not warheads

OnlyM3: FTA:The recycling and transfer of the uranium to the United States were formalized in a 1993 agreementSo a deal that was negotiated under H.W. Bush, survived the Clinton years, the G.W. Bush years, falls apart under the peace prize, regain respect of the world administration.obama diplomacy notches up another success.
Doc Daneeka: The agreement was halted at the initiative of Russia, which said the United States was not paying enough for the uranium, roughly equivalent to 10 billion barrels of crude....Washington has paid close to $8 billion up until now for Russian uranium.We paid $8 billion for the energy equivalent of 10 billion barrels of crude. Sounds like a good deal to me.
Smidge204: Lost Thought 00: I hope so. This fuel can only be used for nuclear power plants, not warheadsThe fuel is FROM warheads.Pretty sure it can be put back into warheads if one was so inclined... it's not like Iran has any nuclear processing capability or anything.=Smidge=
