We need to keep SRS plan going

As we plan for Savannah River Site's future, we should assign first priority to projects such as MOX, coupled to new SRS power reactors that would allow this troubled world to transmute the thousand tons of plutonium made since 1940 into enough clean, almost free energy to power the Southeast for centuries to come.

A few pounds of plutonium make a fine nuclear explosive or the dirtiest of dirty bombs, and its half life is some 25,000 years.

What a service to mankind to eliminate this potential curse upon our progeny in the only garbage-grinder suitable for plutonium, the nuclear reactor.
