Actually, I had exactly the same thought, and that's coming from a background in biochemistry.

It's not "global warming" that I find frightening; it's the schemes people come up with to "cool the planet" (one or two degrees and hello ice age) or "get rid of CO2" (which is to say, plant food -- this is a recipe for famine by reducing crop yields by at least as much, probably about half-again more since starving plants need more water, and cooling reduces rainfall).

So while you got modded funny... it was actually damned insightful.

So, if they can find a use for what would otherwise be waste products (that need to be treated like radioactive waste), it will reduce the costs of an operation that is happening anyways.

Not sure how that makes the material somehow extremely rare or expensive though. I am sure the reactor management companies are very happy to be able to get rid of the waste.

Not the eye witness testimony the Justice department released. The only person who was on Brown's side in his testimony had just robbed a store with him.

As far as Brown trying to steal the gun, there is evidence of it, so we don't have to take the police officer's word for it; fingerprints on the gun, and blood inside the car on a bullet hole, as well as gunshot residue on Brown's hands. Also, Brown charging Wilson has evidence for it in the angles of the gunshot wounds. I have never heard Brown was 148 ft away though, as that would be some seriously good shooting on the officer's part. All of the spent casings are feet away. When someone assaults a police officer, you expect them to just let the person walk away and not try to arrest them? 7 witnesses corraborated the police officer's story, 3 disagreed with him. Totally a clear cut case of the police officer lying. All three of the disagreeing witnesses were proven false by multiple conflicting stories and the evidence, I am sure they are totally work listening to though.
