Not really. In fact they have shown how dangerous Uranium based nuclear reactors are. India and China have now started investing in Thorium based nuclear reactors which are a lot safer (http://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Thorium#Thorium_as_a_nuclear_fuel). The primary reason uranium based reactors were widely used is because on the weapons grade uranium and plutonium byproducts.
It looks like someone forgot to mention the reason behind this insane amount. It seems the RIAA have two new members on their board: Mini-Me and Darth Vader. Darth Vader needs 50 trillion to build the re-designed death star, while Mini-Me wants 5 trillion to gear sharks with freaking lasers. Now it all makes sense.
