    nuclear warheads into desalination/power generation can be built near the sea.

    Interesting point about solids. I have no prior knowledge in this, but I am thinking this:

    1. salt could probably be sent to salt beds (or make new ones somewhere)
    1. other solids are probably environmentally safe if disposed off at some distance from the desalination plants where the salty water is pulled in.

    Plan9 mentioned the other day that naturally found salt beds are in fact excellent places to stash away spent nuclear waste. Not sure if the salt generated as above could also help.

    But interesting possibilities seem to exist here.

      they simply send the waste back into the sea, but I don't think they have fisheries like we do.  I don't want to try to explain to local fisherman that we harmed their livelihood by desalinating water.

      I would not be in favor of downblending plutonium weapons for reactor use.

      The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.
