    The safest most efficient reactors are in our nuclear sub fleet I would think. I have no idea how much they cost.

    I'd go along with that, but I doubt they're ready to share them with the civilian sector.

    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?


    Let me see if I have understood you correctly. Obama enables the construction of the first nuclear power plants in 34 years, and you feel like he's not doing enough?

    Nuclear power is more expensive to build and carries greater risk. That is why private companies refuse to build them without the federal loan guarantees that Obama provided.

    You seem to be unaware of the concept of molten solar plants that run 24/7. Furthermore, a nuclear shutdown that must occur regularly for maintence and fuel removal can result in lengthy periods of inactivity.
