So use other methods of power for right now but in a couple years get it up and running?

much more than a couple of years and (while perhaps im wrong) the amount of money that would be going into such a thing could just be used to replace a large amount of roads with solar panels and never have to worry about it again, you create a shit ton more jobs for the same price, and you don't have to worry with the downsides of nuclear power. i feel like if people would stop being dumb and put money into solar instead of continuing to put more money into petroleum and coal we could have fixed the whole problem of what the next big energy producer would be.

There are SOOOOOOO many problems with solar roadways I barely know where to start.
1. They won't last nearly as long as cement roadways
2. It'll be VERY expensive to implement
3. You know how dirty and muddy roads get? That's gonna block out alot of the sun, not to mention when the glass roadways get scratched and start looking more opaque, this isn't even considering how dreadfully inefficient solar panels are to begin with...
It wont work lol

I just really hate how many people jumped on that bandwagon.

clearly, its a good idea if done right, but were not ready for something like that, it would be more beneficial to replace windows with clear solar s, or roof solars, ect ect, i was really just using it for the sake of topic overall.

A better idea would be having solar panel roofs over the road instead of actually replacing the road. It'd be alot cheaper and no rain on your car. I still don't think it's the way forward.

Well I believe if we want to truly make an effort to remove fossil fuels as a fuel source then yes, there's no way we can just switch overnight. Besides the economic and cultural changes phasing out oil and natural gas would cause there would have to be a pretty large transition period before we would even have enough nuclear plants to sustain one state let alone the country. It's a lofty goal considering how much of a grip oil has, even in the early 1900s, but we could use that time to further advance and build technology and even build new plants out of the guts of older outdated ones.

Hell, there are quite a few plants right now that are nearing the end of when they can operate, because nuclear plants have contracts for how long they stay running for safety concerns. You can get extensions, but that doesn't last forever.

This I work for a 50 Billion dollar (with a B) energy company. They were planning to build s new reactor the CEO once commented that this was the only project that if done wrong could bankrupt our Company. Keep in mind we have multiple multi Billion dollar efforts going on. This project was 5 years old and still just in "figure out if it's viable" phase
