That also has to be factually incorrect. 'Natural' uranium needs to undergo an extensive and expensive enrichment process before it can be used as nuclear fuel. I'm sure 3kg of uranium ore (yellow cake) would not power my Arduino for long, let alone the entire USA.
On a roll today lefty?? The poster just misread it a bit. The actual item from GSU is:
Even with the necessity of enrichment, it still takes only about 3 kg of natural uranium to supply the energy needs of one American for a year.
Which I take with a grain of salt as well. 3Kg of precipitated yellow cake per person at over 300 million people is almost a billion kg to supply the needs of the population for a year??? That doesn't appear to include industry. The US government says we use about 7 billion barrels of oil a year for all purposes. These numbers don't line up at all. There's only a 7 to 1 ratio of oil (barrel) to yellow cake? I have got
to be missing something here. How much uranium is there in this country??
Oh, they only push the percentage up a little bit to make yellow cake into nuclear fuel. IIRC they take it from .7% up to 2% or so U235, so 3Kg of yellow cake could power an arduino for a very long time, if you happen to have a nuclear reactor in your yard.
