200 years and the Uranium is gone

The good news about uranium is that it won't last ...

Steve Fetter, dean of the University of Maryland's School of Public Policy (backed by hundreds of other scholars around the world for decades), supplies an answer: If the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) has accurately estimated the planet's economically accessible uranium resources, reactors could run more than 200 years at current rates of consumption.

So the profiteers raiding the future resources today for the sole purpose of greed will have nothing left to do in a few centuries. Of course, they are leaving behind them millions of tons of deadly radioactive waste that remains deadly for millions of years, but still we seem uncaring about how we treat future generations as we allow robber barons to decimate the future.
