The counter to this argument on the energy boards is that breeder reacter technology produces fissible fuel such as Plutonium. The real problem in these discussions relates to the amount of weapons grade material, Plutonium, that can be produced. Imagine "cold war" practiced by 100's of different players and the increased likelihood of nuclear conflict, as a result. This technology has been used in North Korea already. Iran was clearly building this type of reactor. Why build anything else with so little Uranium? That's why Plutonium must be considered in this discussion.
Please don't shoot the messenger. I'm just conveying discussion from places such as The Oil Drum.

To clear up the nuclear Q's there is only 60 years of usable A grade uranium reserves so how it could possibly be suggested as of any use to any one is unbelievable
