    On a side note, it looks like they are beginning to look at Nuclear Power a little more seriously now. I doubt it will get anywhere in the near future, but you never know.

    Perhaps the greatest obstacle is the EPA process. They have to approve the building permit, then approve the OPERATING permit once its built. The second permit really makes everything hit the fan. That's when they come in and will demand changes in the design that cost too much (and may be changed back again in some cases!) and it is also where protesters and such have the most leeway in stopping the plant. Sad story.

    Definitely. But on the plus side, it doesn't not contribute to the myth that is man-caused global warming.

    Reminds me of the time that the environmentalists were complaininh that a highway was killing toads. So, they had the state govt build a huge tunnel underneath the highway to allow the toads to pass through unharmed.

    After the tunnel was complete, the toads continued to cross the highway and get run over.
