    With over 4 million articles, Wikipedia is an invaluable resource, whether you're throwing a term paper together at the last minute, or trying to find a way to vandalize the Tom Brady page without getting banned again. But follow enough links, and you get sucked into some seriously strange places. We explore some of Wikipedia's oddities in our 4,,week series, Wiki : Mike Vago.   Unless our uranium utilization is magnified many times by the breeder and reprocessing, nuclear power will be limited by availability of reasonably priced new uranium .   You can't just throw decaying radioactive isotopes into a landfill, so after the nuclear age and a half-century Cold War with the U.S.S.R., there are caches of radioactive uranium and plutonium Author: Jacqueline Detwiler. Some countries don't need nuclear weapons, but some do. If the US had no nuclear weapons, the U.S.S.R. would have crushed all of Europe, and perhaps the US as well.

Each disaster is a legacy of lies. All three nations, the U.S., the U.S.S.R., and Japan, lied to the world and even more importantly their own people about how much radioactivity was being released and what those intense high-level exposures meant to the health of their own people who were in the direct path of the radioactive plumes.

The United States and Russia also found ways to cooperate in securing "loose nukes"—enriched uranium or other nuclear material on the black market—in former Soviet territory. There is still much to be done on this issue, however.
