and obomber (nickname for obama) is pimping for these fools
Nuclear plants in the USA and Chernobyl are two different animals. Chernobyl was a defective design that was not used in the USA or in any other western nations to generate power to the best of my knowledge. Nuclear energy has an excellent record and if you believe in Global warming and such it is the only answer of consequence at the moment.
Nuclear power could make great inroads on getting the USA off foreign oil and the pitfalls associated with that. The technology is here now and not 10, 20 or more years away. The costs are known and they are competitive. A good part of the western world is way ahead of the USA in the utilization of Nuclear as a source of electricity. Belize itself gets some of its power from a Mexican Nuclear Power Plant if my memory serves me correctly.
The cons of nuclear power are waste but with a change in policies to allow recycling in the USA and either moving ahead with Yucca Mountain or a few other ideas it is a problem that is very manageable.
I'm not convinced that the President is really in favor of moving in this diretion but we will see. We don't need 2 new Nuclear Plants we need 50.
