'Bout Time

Bush Push to Expand Nuke Energy. It's time to ditch the hare-brained ideas like wind and solar power and start building nuclear power plants. The reason he is bringing this up is apparantly scientists have found a way to reuse nuclear fuel.
Nuclear power must play a growing role in meeting future energy needs not only in the United States, but globally, the president said. He said he envisions a system where the United States and other countries such as Russia, Britain and France would provide reactors and lend nuclear fuel to developing nations. Used fuel would be returned and recycled.
That seems to be the breakthrough that is giving him the political cover to do this.
