Soviet warheads make peaceful power!

America has burned about 16,000 to 20,000 Soviet nuclear warheads over the last 20 years. It has provided about 10% of their electricity. 10% = 388.6 TW h/year, or 1.5 times Australia’s electricity consumption annually. Imagine it. Imagine 1.5 times every home, traffic light, hospital, shopping mall, and industrial complex in Australia all powered on old Soviet warheads! With a statistic like that, we can see how civilian nuclear power can be one of the greatest pathways to peace or ‘swords to ploughshares’ the world has ever known!
