Nuclear Power in Poland? Yes, please! Absolutely nobody disagrees!

PO couldn't find the money for i

PO couldn't find money for many things since so much of the state tax revenues
somehow "evaporated" and mysteriously turned up in the pockets of scamsters while the PO-era authorities looked the other way. Explain that, won't you?

There's nothing to explain, because as we can see clearly, the situation never existed.

If it had, why isn't there a single investigation into it?

Because one was never launched. PO surely wouldn't want to publicise its sloppy governance and aura of scamsterism, whilst PiS have had their hands full carrying out good changes amid the unending sabotage and obstruction attempts by the hysterical poor losers' contingent.

But how is it that 500+ has not cost the taxpayer a single grosz? Because, as Morawiecki put it, it sufficed to stop the theft of VAT revenues. BTW how do you account for the budget surplus for the first time in history?

But Morawiecki and 500+ do exist. So please explain how it is that the PO screamed and shouted that 500+ would break the budget, while Morawiecki calmly prefdicted it wouldn't cost the taxpayer a brass farthing. He simply put a stop to PO-tolerated VAT theft. Also, as a hard-nosed capitalist, do tell us how for the first time in history there is no budget deficit, but a budget surplus. We're all waiting with bated breath!

Yeah, the "scam-fighting"(?!) PO regime was quick to investigate their pension-fund heist in broad daylight, AmberGold and the the Gronkowiec ex-Jewish property heist. PO "honest" to a fault. Hell, they could give the Clintons a run for their money.

we need to have the debate about nuclear fuel in Poland

Poland has a golden opportunity to get the ┼╗arnowiec Nuclear Power Plant up and running with funds now available from the E.U.

I am not sure there is any other way to produce the power Poland needs...but i do wish there was....!

For sure, you can't have it both ways.
My only concern is, "what do you do with the nuclear waste (spent radio active uranium rods) when they need to be disposed of."
Yes they periodically have to be changed out.
Where do you store them ? (Deep in the retired coal mines and cement them shut ?)
How many thousands of years before they are no longer dangerous to anything living ?
That is my only concern that is never talked about by the ice hockey politicians.

If memory serves me correctly, if you buy your rods from Russia, you have an option to get a "full lifecycle" contract. You receive fresh fuel, and rods is taken back after they depleted and sit for necessary period in a station fuel cooling pools to let most active nuclides decay so rods can be transported.

after they depleted

To what degree ?

let most active nuclides decay so rods can be transported.

"Most" is the key word here and transported to where as they are still very radioactive for hundreds of years.
To my understanding anyways.

To what degree ?

Depends of reactor type. In any case, a lot of uranium still there, but cannot be used further safely after some point, set by reactor designers.

"Most" is the key word here

Most active - short lived ones who give huge activity and strong heating first months after unloading. It is why such rods stored in a pools with water near reactor for cooling. After short lived nuclides decay and heating decrease to a level that can be managed by transport containers, rods can be transported to a long storage near reprocessing factory, for years. After activity is decreased further due to decay, rods will be disassembled and remaining uranium and some other valuable elements (including some transmutated ones) extracted. The rest will be treated as active waste, dried and fused into glass blocks to be buried for millennias.

Poland could have a nuclear plant running long time ago but due to people being against it was dropped.
I don't see much benefits in a nuclear plant in Poland unless it would be a first step in getting our own nuclear weapon.
