    An acceptable replacement has already been developed. That you don't like it does not make it unacceptable.

    You have the heart of a tyrant.
    And here we have the right defending the tyrannical power of big corporations while insulting the little guy. GOP, baby!

    I love half-truths...

    Nebraska forged ahead with pipeline legislation even after the State Department's decision to put off giving TransCanada a permit for the Keystone XL line until 2013.

    And the half-truthers who tell them.

    The lie is that the rich do not pay their fair share.

    That defeats the whole purpose of trying to do less impact to the environment. And don't forget that we (the human race) are running out of oil and if you don't believe that there is plenty of evidence to support that.

    I agree with you on streamlining the nuclear process, we do need to embrace that tech further, but unfortunately the raw materials needed for the plants are very difficult to process and extremely rare. Nuclear is not a silver bullet, particularly compared to the nations ever increasing demand!

    I am not trying to have less impact on the environment. That is a silly idea. The environment doesn't need our help other than what we already do, clean as we go.

    I do not believe we are running out of oil. Every projection has been wrong. We always find more as it becomes profitable to go get it.

    We make it hard to license nuclear power for political, not technical reasons. We ought to be using nuclear energy to power things that stands still, and petroleum for things that move. Easy peasy.

    I would have to say that the degree to which consumers willingly buy a particular product is the very definition of how “acceptable” that product is.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    In that case drugs and prostitution should be legal, hmm?
