    Just throw spent fuel rods into the ocean like used car batteries.
    Actually the correct answer
    Make the world a radder place, grow a mullet.
    Public Mobile is the best, just like Phil Collins haggard face.

    While sending anything into space is complicated, we don't need to fire something into the sun, just make sure it's closer to the sun than we are, and also out of our orbit. Gravity will do the rest eventually, just not in a timely manner.

    Why throw away good fuel?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TerraPower

    By using depleted uranium as fuel, the new reactor type could reduce stockpiles from uranium enrichment.[9] TerraPower notes that the US hosts 700,000 metric tons of depleted uranium and that 8 metric tons could power 2.5 million homes for a year.[10] Some reports claim that the high fuel efficiency of TWRs, combined with the ability to use uranium recovered from river or sea water, means enough fuel is available to generate electricity for 10 billion people at US per capita consumption levels for million-year time-scales.

    On a side note: Three gorges dam seems to have peaked out at 530 feet.

    They literally underspec'ed the energy generation capacity if this year is any indicator. They could have easily gone 30,000 MW instead of 22,500 MW.

    Nuclear power? Pah, just gotta find a nice spot with free energy. You would need 20 nuclear power plants to equal one Three Gorges.
    Combustion engine cars - Bwahaha.

    Its worthy of note that the USA uses quite a bit of nuclear energy on aircraft carriers. It takes a boatload of energy to keep a portable floating airport moving.

    If the USA only did three aircraft carriers instead of 10, they might have been able to use all that effort into ensuring that Calfornia has year round power. But - Priorities amirite?

    As for watching water fall: As the USA makes things more complicated to keep ever expanding white people making more dollars, China makes them less complicated, costing less dollars. All the people that you would have had to employ in complicated nuclear plants just so noone dies of heat exhaustion, you can now have peeps producing solar panels, and doing productive things like hacking the USA.

    Chinese get free energy from the water that falls and the sun that shines. The USA just wants to be paid money to burn. Don't steal the words, I think this one is a keeper.
