Unless you're referring to the failed notion of an electric car that portion of your argument does not apply.

    On that note - I do support us becoming a larger figure in the oil-industry - but that's not related to nuclear-production of electricity at all. Oil itself has it's drawbacks and concerns but they're nominal in regard to the nuclear-energy 'idea'
    It would be if the USA didn't get a good chunk of it's Energy from Petroleum aka Oil.

    Cook pie chart- check me out, hanging out with the 21%

    I only support actual clean, natural sources like water, wind and solar - and for several years I've been toying with the idea of going 100% solar for my own home.

    Which is all find dandy for small usages but not realistic on a national scale.

    Everything has a drawback - nuclear's drawbacks are far more massive than the drawback of these other sources. Yet significant advances have been made as far as the efficiency of these 3 sources. Especially when it comes to harnessing water - some new methods are just as efficient as the classic dam/compression method and some require no dam at all.

    It seems that I'm consider more things that 'how much energy does it produce.'

    Nuclear power is currently one of the safest, cleanest, most reliable forms of energy we can have. Of course we shouldn't stagnate on it, we need to push forward to find even better energy sources. But there's no reason to be afraid.

    Are you sure about that? The Japanese seem to be afraid of it right now.

    Well, they do have a history of bad luck regarding nuclear power.

    Indian Point?

    “Indian Point is situated at the intersection of the two most striking linear features marking the seismicity and also in the midst of a large population that is at risk in case of an accident. This is clearly one of the least favorable sites in our study area from an earthquake hazard and risk perspective.” — study, “Observations and Tectonic Setting of Historic and Instrumentally Located Earthquakes in the Greater New York City–Philadelphia Area” (pdf) by Lynn R. Sykes, John G. Armbruster, Won-Young Kim, and Leonardo Seebe, Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America, Vol. 98, No. 4, pp. 1696–1719, August 2008

    In other recent news:

    Excerpted from “New York Denies Indian Point a Water Permit” By DAVID M. HALBFINGER, The New York Times, Published: April 3, 2010
    In a major victory for environmental advocates, New York State has ruled that outmoded cooling technology at the Indian Point nuclear power plant kills so many Hudson River fish, and consumes and contaminates so much water, that it violates the federal Clean Water Act. …
