    Coal is cheaper than nuclear at least in the u.s.

    We need to get the nuclear industry in America on track.
    As a left-of-center believer in AGW, I am entirely in agreement with this, with the only addition that we should continue to make advances in power from clean, renewable resources.

    If The Obama came out for new nuclear plants to be built across the country, I'd vote for him.

    Nuke plants are uninsurable because of the potential for devastation.
    Nuke plants can not be financed by banks because they are uninsurable.
    This is the most highly subsidized energy industry in the USA.
    They are unsafe and present radioactive contamination hazards on multiple levels for thousands of years. Just keep watching the cleanup in Japan, Chernobyl, Hanford, Vermont Yankee, Three Mile Island, etc. The only reason these monstrosities are built is because their electricity production funnels into the Centralized Collection of Monies grid that represents an existing big money monopoly of Distributed Energy. Local renewables, especially solar and wind, build jobs, communities and economies at a local level, but end run the existing grid and that is why they don't get the huge subsidies that "nukes" get.

    With all the nuclear plants around the world, you'd think these things would be going off all the time. Must be pretty safe.
