    They are pretty safe, when highly subsidised, with stringent safety regulations. You however said you want cheap nuclear. I don't like the idea of doing it on the cheap and nuclear together.

    Ok... u took somethin I said the wrong way. I'm not sayin we build "cheap" nuclear plants, I'm sayin they produce "cheap" energy.

    Gotta love the irony of accusing liberals of being responsible for the delays, when it is a liberal President that got the ball moving on this. It doesn't occur to some people that the fossil fuel industry is also highly involved in obstructing nuclear energy talks in the U.S., because it wants to maintain its monopoly on energy as much as possible?

    How'd
    did this slip by The Obama's radar? They'll block an oil pipeline, but build the
    first nuclear plant in like 34 years. The left has done everything it can
    prevent America from developing our nuclear industry. They're misguided efforts
    to resist nuclear power has forced us to strip mine coal and burn zillions of
    tons of coal a year, then they complain about global wa.. i mean climate change.
    At the same time raising the price of basic living, hurting the poorest among us
    most, while claiming they care about the poor. Cheap energy would help the poor
    the most, but thats just to far.



    Look
    at the countrys the left worships... The American left should feel duped for
    letting there friends take the lead in the global energy production industry. I
    wonder if France is teaching us how to make our new reactors?

    greatsatan

    is there a left in US ?

    a very strong movement excepting wall street occupiers..

    A conservative calling for government intervention in the energy industry?

    Guess the public purse is bankrupt only when it suits them?

    The monopoly is Distributed Energies and that is what keeps the Nuke debacles alive. If the government will build them, then Big Money is willing to make money off of them. However, the liability is the government's. Distributed Energies can afford to buy many politicians and I only get one vote. I want to buy a Congressman or a President.

    The way I hear it, South Korea is making the safest, most efficient nuclear reactors in the world. And they're doing it for about $4 Billion a pop. That's a terrific price. Maybe we ought to work out a business deal with them.
