Is Google going to build its own nuclear power station?

Larry Page, the company's co-founder, reportedly sees "running out of power" as the biggest potential threat to Google. Partly this is because Google is based in California, where the state solved its 2001 energy crisis by borrowing $10 billion to buy electricity at massively inflated prices. But the rest of us are heading in the same direction. Do you think that Google giant can own nuclear station?

no, not right now i think. taken from wikipedia.org: In October, 2006, the company announced plans to install thousands of solar panels to provide up to 1.6 megawatts of electricity, enough to satisfy approximately 30% of the campus' energy needs. The system will be the largest solar power system constructed on a U.S. corporate campus and one of the largest on any corporate site in the world.

They could just buy their own planet, they'll outgrow a power station. They could set up on an asteroid even. Or they could just negotiate with Ahhhhhnold about buying the state of California itself.

I suppose they could if the want to keep their site running at all. Although, I'm not sure how they'd afford it since they're hard up on cash.

there is more way to get power than owning a nuclear station which are safer too, like wind power station with gengerator in them, or solar power pannel, stuff like that we can use, i kinda against nuclear power, but i perfer the other two over that.
